Coco Martin made the rounds on social media as a scene from his long-running series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano trended. Netizens found the scene to be funny as the actor delivered his lines so quickly which made it incomprehensible.
The said scene was in the June 9 episode of FPJAP where Cardo Dalisay (Coco Martin) confronted Fernando Mante (Christian Vasquez).
One netizen uploaded the scene on his Facebook account which garnered 17k reactions from other people.
The line that Dalisay was supposed to say was, “Hayop ka, akala namin mapagkakatiwalaan kayo! Bakit kayo nagsumbong sa pulis?”
However, the netizen heard it as “Ayp ka! Akala namin [email protected] kayo! Bat ka nagtumbong ta pulith!?!”
Dalisay confronted Mante as he discovered that the latter tried to call the police from which Dalisay’s team was running away.
The episode ended with Dalisay threatening Mante’s family.
“Kapag inulit niyo pa ‘yung ginawa niyo, sisiguraduhin namin sa inyo na buhay niyo ang malalagay sa panganib,” said Dalisay.
The episode aired online and just recently trended as people noticed Coco Martin’s funny way of delivering his lines.
Netizens made fun of the actor as they shared their own interpretation of his incomprehensible lines.
“Pag kakaintindi ko kua bat kayo nag tumbong sa pulis HAHAHA” said one netizen.
“Tinumbong ta pulit,” another netizen said.
While some netizens defended the actor saying that other people should not make fun of his speech impediment.
“2021 na and many still act like it’s okay to make fun of Coco Martin’s speech impediment,” one netizen said.
totoo tapos sobrang disappointing na yung ibang “progressive” pa rito sa twitter yung mga nauuna sa ganung jokes

I admit I used to be one of those who make jokes about speaking w/ lisp. But I realized there’s nothing funny about it. Took me time, i know, & I regret it.
Itigil na natin yang paggawa o pagtawa sa lisp jokes. 2021 na. https://t.co/HAv9P0rZXf
