Jessica Soho Releases Statement on Vice Ganda’s ‘Rape Joke’

May 28, 2013 by  



After being defended by her colleagues from Vice Ganda‘s “cruel” joke (CLICK HERE FOR RELATED ARTICLE), Kapuso journalist Jessica Soho breaks her silence on the issue by releasing an official statement.

Jessica Soho

Vice Ganda‘s “rape joke” about Jessica Soho has been talk of the town the whole day, Tuesday, after a video clip from his recent concert went viral on YouTube. The clip features the gay comedian poking fun on the journalist’s weight by saying if Soho was a bold star in a movie, the scene would have to involve a “gang rape.”

GMA News Online has released Soho’s official statement on Tuesday afternoon saying: “Rape is not a joke and should never be material for a comedy concert.”

The Vice President for News and Public Affairs of GMA Network also expressed her gratitude to her colleagues who defended her from the comedian’s “cruel joke”:

“I thank all those who shared my hurt and expressed their support, but this should not be about me but about rape victims who suffer tremendously from this terrible crime. The horrors they go through are unspeakable and should never be taken lightly, especially by way of a cruel joke,” she said.

As of this posting, Vice Ganda‘s camp has not yet issued their own statement or clarification about the issue.

    SAbi: SCENE sa MOVIE : Hindi TOTOO , Gang rape si JS , SCENE sa MOVIE… NANONOOD ba kayo ng mga MOVIES? oh.. wala palang movie ang gme films… SCENE sa MOVIE… JESSICA? SCENE sa MOVIE , like dun sa bubble gang… hindi rin totoo KUNYARI lang , JOKE. wag tanga ang bias..

    ginagamit nyo yung RAPE an word, Sabihin mo na lang na nasaktan ka sa joke dahil BABOY ka.. i mean mukhang baboy at binaboy ka sa joke, dahil respetado kuno ka! isa kuno kang award winning.. Dyusko naman… paano naman kasi , isa kang Journalist , dapat idolo ka, hindi ka dapat Obese , isang kasalanan ang Glutony , tumigil ka…. wag mong gamitin ang RAPE para lang kampihan ka… dapat mong malamang daming palabas sa TV including GMA na Visual at verbal ang pagkakalarawan sa RAPE!

    First of all, the topic was pertaining to “BOLD STARS”. Hypothetical situations were given as examples. Hence the “what if’s, ano kaya kung’s, etc.”. Consequently, BOLD MOVIES also have RAPE SCENES. The mere mention of RAPE was only incidental to the topic.

    IT WAS NOT A RAPE JOKE PER SE, it was a mere mention of a RAPE SCENE in BOLD MOVIE.

    Arnold Clavio and GMA reporters are so onion skinned. However, Vice Ganda should also be more responsible in his choice of jokes. Not everyone is “game” enough to have a good laugh.

    ang masama kasi ginagamit talaga young RAPE as in pinapalabas na yun yung PINAKA CORE ng Joke ni Vice , e gumawa lang siya ng scenario sa isang Movie ng isang boldstar… sako ma oofend ka talaga dahil alam mong totoong MUKHA kang BABOY! , u chose to be like that! now u r complaining (halatang nasaktan ka) …… reality check po.. mukha po talagang Baboy si Jessica.. ok… di naman masamang maging mataba.. if yun gusto mo…

    pero kung maninira ka lang para MAKAGANTI! palalabasin mong masama ang TAO dahil ginamit sa biro ang RAPE!… (para makaganti dahil nasaktan sa katotohanan at ang ego) … wag na oi!…. ask vice for apology DAHIL nasaktan ka! di yung kung ano ano pang pinagsasabi… sumasali pa yung ibang tao sa ZOO and current AFFAIRS ninyo… kasalanan ng GMA yan, para lang mapansin talaga ang news nila.. kumukuha ng mula sa ZOO!! oo nga naman , lahat ng newscast sa mundo mga tao magaganda.. so para maiba naman… lol… yun talaga yung intensyon ng gMA , di dahil magaling… marami din namang magagaling na magaganda pa… sus!

    sana, inisip mo muna if this joke was okay or kumunsulta ka muna sana at may nag advise sa yo not do that STUPID JOKE..
    ang mga audience naman tuwang tuwa na naiinsulto ang isang desenteng tao..your time will come vice…hindi nakakatawa ang mga comedians na ginagamit ang ibang tao , nakakasakit ng feelings makapagpatawa lang.. his stupid joke showed how stupid he was…low class…if i were Jessica, i will sue him to teach him a lesson. SOBRANG pambabastos na yon.
    you can go to hell vice, never akong natawa sa mga jokes mo…

  16. Myra on May 29th, 2013 6:11 am

    Sobrang O.A. ng mga reaction ng mga GMA e yung iba nga malala pa ang joke ni Vice doon! Tsaka delayed reaction. Gusto lang pataubin si Vice dahil magaling sya talo nya talent ng mga GMA. Too lame an excuse Ms Jessica, u should have watched the whole show para naintindihan di yin react agad!

  17. Myra on May 29th, 2013 6:16 am

    Kaya nga may disclaimer si Vice na biro nga lahat at SPG! Nakapunta na ba si Ms Jessica sa comedy bar na mas masahol pa. Same rin yun concert ni Vice mas malaki nga lang ang venue! Comedy bar Hindi prayer meeting yun kaya di dapat seryosohin!

  18. enchong on May 29th, 2013 7:01 am

    hoy vice walang kwenta mamalasin karin at babasak ka dahil sa kayabangan at ugali mong pangit…sobra kana dapat iniisip mo mga sinasabe mo..think be fore you say some thing ok.

  20. growup on May 29th, 2013 7:40 am

    dont be onioned skinned and dont take things out of context, a real mature woman knows how to take jokes. they are correct gang raped are portrayed in movies.. it was rape scene.. this simila to the reaction to dan browns fictional take of manila.. para mo n ding ibinaba o inilevel mo ang sarili mo when u said n cruel joke yon. ang pikon ay laging talo, wag personalin.. for me with vice it is right there are those people who acclaimed themselves as intelligent but ironically has never encountered the word “joke” in the dictionary. growup people.

  21. anonymous on May 29th, 2013 7:53 am

    ang tanuong kung ginamit ba ni vice ganda yan sinasabi nilan rape joke sa taga ABS mag rereact din kaya ang mga GMA reporters? sasabihin din kaya ni taba at ng mga hipokritong news anchor and reportes nila na rape is not a joke? i don’t think so! nag kataon lang na taga GMA yun ginamit ni vice sa “BOLD STAR” joke nya kaya kung maka react sila arnold clavio wagas.. hahaha.. saka please lang arnold clavio.. sya nga itong on Nationwide television nag bitaw ng RACIST remark against sa azkals and even accused them na nag rape etc.. so wag mag malinis..

  22. helen aborde on May 29th, 2013 7:56 am

    isa lang ibig sabihin lumaki na ulo ng baklang yan lahat ng bagay may hangganan mas tumatagal ang tulad ni jessica soho keysa sa tulad ng kasikatan kuno na sinasabi nila sau na hindi ka pa sisikat kundi sa malaswang at mapanglait na joke. na nag humahanga lang ay ang katulad mo din na may malaswang pagiisip at masaya pag nakapanglait ng kapwa ilan ba ang tulad nyo.umubra ka ba kay rustom padilla hindi man cya comesy pero baklang kagalang galang kc may breeding ikaw puro bunganga maputi pero maitim kalooban. sana bago ka mapanis gumawa ka ng magandang bagay kahit sa joke. wla ka ba iba style magpatawa baguhin mo naman yun walng halong panlalait o may respeto sa kapwa sabagay meron ka ba non? sisikat ka kaya pag ginbawa mo yon.hay ang mapanglait masa kalaitlait

  23. Glenn on May 29th, 2013 7:57 am

    I know those jokes seems to be “below the belt” but please. when you are inside a comedy bar, the number one rule is to set aside your professions or who you are no matter what!… there are no special treatments for doctors, priests, or even politics/public servants. Comedians on stage tend to treat you equally, they will make fun of you the same thing they make fun of those ordinary people. Vice Ganda is a well known comedian and he turns Araneta Coliseum into Huge Comeday Bar, its his show, he can do anything what he wants…

    pinupuna nila kasi successful ung concert……….
    en then sa simula pa lang joke lang lahat en beside ung mga tao dun dapat ipagtanggol si vice kasi sinavi nya n kapag tawanan sabay sabay kapag barilan n mag-isa n lng sya,,,,,,,,,,sana marealize nila un…………….maraming gumgamit s rape n joke bakit ngaun lang nila pinuna…..

  31. charlie on May 29th, 2013 10:21 am

    BOY ABUNDA and KRIS AQUINO are Vice Ganda’s friends, most probably alam na nila or they wont mind kasi kaibigan nya sila. Pero si Jessica Soho hindi naman kaibigan ni Vice Ganda. Hindi na joke ang tawag kung nakaka pahiya na ng tao so humiliating. At kayo kaya ang pagtawanan ng libo libong tao? Nanay nyo kaya ang ganunin or kayo.

  41. KAPUTOT on May 29th, 2013 12:38 pm

    ganyan din naman sila sa gma. discriminating kaya sila. di ba nagissue sila ng FAT MEMO sa talent nila na si geoff eigenmann. bakit kaya ang head ng news nila hindi issuehan ng fat memo. di na sya kasya sa camera. hirap para sa cameraman.

  42. Rose on May 29th, 2013 12:59 pm

    Vice Ganda is a non-sense comedian and sobrang bilib sa sarili. Like what he did to Binay when he campaigns Hontiveros. Well, who wins between the 2? Its Binay, because Vice Gay – not Ganda has no credibility at all. People should stop admiring this NON-SENSE gay.

  43. janis on May 29th, 2013 1:14 pm

    they should have watched the entire video. better yet, they should have watched the concert. the video in question is just an excerpt of the concert. was the disclaimer at the onset of the joke captured? bet not.

    vice ganda has already given his side of the story in ‘it’s showtime’ earlier.

    the comedian reached out to the journalist by calling her to personally ask for forgiveness but the latter didn’t want to give the comedian the chance to air his side. that’s not ‘balance’ as they always claim to be in their show. if she indeed wasn’t offended personally for herself but for the rape victims, then why isn’t she open to communication? it now appears to be more personal than professional. hhhmmm… make up your mind JS. i’m baffled.

    come to think of it, it wasn’t only JS who was part of VG’s jokes. they were even big names (politicians and celebrity alike) who were part of VG’s joke. it’s just up to the person receiving the joke. not all will be pleased or laugh at ones joke. a time will come that a joke will not be laughable. that’s why the term ‘waley’ was created.

    VG has admitted his mistake. everyone errs. it’ll just depend on the person if he’ll take the responsibility or not. I admire VG for his courage and sincerity.

    “The basis of shame is not some personal mistake of ours but that this humiliation is seen by others.” — Milan Kundera.

    Sabihan din ang mga taga bubble gang na huwag gawin issue ang rape dahil its a cruel joke.

    Si jessica soho ay isang batikang mamamahayag and she should be respected.what’s different is that comedy kasi ang pinaggamitan ng name niya so she shoul also understand how this certain genre works.she should just understand that joke.she’s already a grown-up so she should know how to take jokes.

  48. medical condition daw! on May 29th, 2013 3:03 pm

    sa nagsasabing tanga dahil sinabing matakaw at glutony, ikaw ang mag isip, isinilang bang BABOY ang jessica na yan? yung sakit niya ay maaring dahilan ng katabaan niya , pero once in her life , dumaan siya sa pagka balasubas kumain , kaya siya nag kaganyan..

    well, sige sabihin na nating sakit nga ang dahilan , pero BAKIT NYO NGA ginagamit yung RAPE , pinag didikdikan nyong RAPE RAPE RAPE , e di naman yung talaga ang totoong dahilan bat nag react yung GMA ZOO and current affairs people. BAT DI AMINING NASAKTAN.. Kailangang humingi ng paumanhin si VICE. bat idadaan pa sa ganyan.

    Di ba KABABOYAN yun? awarded pa naman at respetado , pero ang intensyon e gusto lang makaganti. gagamitin pa ang rape.

    wag po tayong tanga. Alam nating nasaktan si Jessica (period). yung ang dahilan 100% . so nag sorry na si vice.

    ang tanong : pag tiningnan nyo ba si Jessica? di ba nyo na iisip ang litson? hehehehe..

    nakakatawa man pero totoo…

    EPOKRITONG mga baklang fans ng GMA.. na kung makapangutya e wagas.. Ngayong kayo mga taga GMA pinagtatawanan . Todo react kayo.

    ang Respeto ay para sa lahat. Newscaster, drama actors , comedians etc.

    Karma nyo na lang yan , masakit ba mga Kanguso fans? lalo ka na corniche hahaha..

  49. ABS the Best on May 29th, 2013 3:05 pm

    Ginawa lang yan ni Jessica para mapag-usapan…. at para na rin dadami ang mga viewers nila.. hhaha…
