After going viral on his statement on the series of earthquakes that hit Mindanao, Kingdom of Jesus Christ Pastor Apollo Quiboloy has been a subject of fun to some after comedian Vice Ganda dared the latter to put a stop to ABS-CBN series “Ang Probinsyano” which has been airing and continue to top the ratings for four years now.
Vice Ganda made the statement during their noontime show “It’s Showtime” wherein he was having his usual banter with co-host Jhong Hilario.
He said that the greatest enemy of Cardo Dalisay, the protagonist of the drama series played by Coco Martin, would only be Quiboloy himself.
“Alam mo kung sino ang magiging pinakamatinding kalaban ni Cardo? Naku, kabahan na si Cardo. Feeling ko si Quiboloy, ‘yung nagpahinto ng lindol,” the comedian said, his statement immediately drew laugh from the audience inside the studio.
“Si Quiboloy lang ang magpapahinto ng ‘Probinsyano.’ Abangan niyo ‘yan,” he added.
Vice Ganda went on to challenge the Pastor by saying: “Hinahamon kita, Quiboloy. Ipahinto mo na ang ‘Probinsyano.’ Napahinto mo pala ang lindol eh. Napakayabang niyo pala eh.”
He also challenged Quiboloy to ease the traffic in EDSA.
In a separate report, broadcaster Mike Abe of DZAR and Sunshine Media Network International, both owned by Quiboloy, lambasted the comedian saying he is not in the position to judge the Pastor since he didn’t know him personally.
In his program Usaping Bayan, Abe expressed his personal opinion on the statement of Vice Ganda.
“Si Vice Ganda, hindi ko naman maintindihan kung paano naging ‘Ganda’ yun. Baka siguro Vice lang. Vice K… bahala na kayo kung ano yung ‘K.’ Pero Vice Ganda, hindi naman maganda, e, lalo na yung sinabi, lalo na yung pagtatawanan,” he said, referring to the comedian’s recent statement towards Quiboloy.
“Hindi po totoo yung sinabi ni Vice K na mayabang si Pastor, hindi ho totoo yun. Kaya sabi ko nga, ginawa po ng ABS-CBN, kayong mga taga-ABS, after money lang kayo. After rating lang kayo. ‘Yan pong inyong talent na ‘yan, inyong pagsabihan ‘yan. Pasalamat kayo… sana hindi ‘yan makasalubong ng mga taong nagagalit sa kanya, baka may paglagyan ‘yang mamang ‘yan,” Abe added.
Abe also cursed on Vice Ganda after calling his friend, Pastor Quiboloy, ‘mayabang.’
As of posting, Vice Ganda and ABS-CBN have yet to release a statement on the said issue.
