Amid Ate Gay’s issue, Vice Ganda admits getting hurt after netizens question the amount he gave to a ‘friend’

“Parang ‘pag hindi ka tumulong, ang sama-sama mo, ‘pag tumulong ka kekwestyunin ka bakit yun lang ang tinulong mo, [and] that hurts so much.”

Comedian and It’s Showtime host Vice Ganda admitted on Thursday, September 16, that he was hurt when he received harsh comments after he helped a friend.

“May natulungan ako. Hindi ko pinagmalaking meron akong natulungan. Pero yung tinulungan ko, sinabi n’yang tinulungan ko s’ya. Tapos nilabas n’ya kung magkano ang tinulong ko sa kanya,” started Vice during the show’s episode.



Upon reading the comments about his friend’s revelation, he was surprised to see some Netizens question the amount he gave.

“Tapos nabasa ko sa mga comments…sabi sa mga comments, ‘gano’n lang pala binigay ni Vice Ganda, 20 thousand lang?

“Napalunok ako, parang ‘pag ako ba yung tumulong dapat may presyo? May ceiling, di ba?

“Na-ano ako… tumulong na ako nang kusa, ayoko ngang magpa-acknowledge kaya ‘di ko sinasabi. Pero yung nilabas yung pangalan ko, tapos inokray pa ako na bakit 20 thousand lang ang binigay, nasaktan ako talaga,” he lamented.

“Parang ‘pag hindi ka tumulong, ang sama-sama mo, ‘pag tumulong ka kekwestyunin ka bakit yun lang ang tinulong mo, [and] that hurts so much.”

Although Vice did not reveal the name of his friend, it was clear that he was referring to comedian Ate Gay who revealed the friends who helped him when he was hospitalized and needed financial aid.

According to the comedian, the showbiz friends who helped him were Vice, Beks Batallion, Calvin Chua, Ogie Diaz, Ogie Alcasid, Teri Onor, and Paolo Ballesteros.

Ate Gay was bashed by Netizens for his pro-government stance and said that the comedian did not deserve Vice’s help.

To defend himself, Ate Gay, in a now-deleted tweet, clarified that it was his brother who contributed the most in paying his hospital bills.

However, Vice was not hurt by Ate Gay’s revelation. Instead, he was hurt by the Netizens’ reaction towards the money he donated for his colleague’s cause.

Meanwhile, Vice and Ate Gay’s relationship was not scorned by the revelation of the latter.

In an interview with Ogie Diaz, Ate Gay admitted he was embarrassed by how Netizens linked Vice Ganda’s name to his pro-government opinion.

“Laging pinagdidikit yung mukha ko at ni Vice Ganda. Nahihiya ako kay Vice. Actually, tumulong si Vice. Sabi ko nga, di ba, maliit at malaking halaga ay tulong.”

“Oo, tinulungan ako. Pero nga, ang feeling ko, yung mga namba-bash sa akin, parang feeling nila si Vice ‘yung nagbayad ng bill sa hospital.



Oo, nahihiya ako sa kanya. Maraming salamat sa kanya dahil sa panahon na nahirapan ako sa hospital, ‘yung naalala ka lang niya, okay na yun. Tumulong pa siya, di ba? Maraming salamat,” said Ate Gay.
