GMA Network Releases Statement on ‘Rape Joke’ in ‘Bubble Gang’

GMA Network has released a statement regarding the video of an old episode of "Bubble Gang" showing a series of "rape jokes."

GMA Rape Joke

Following the issue about Vice Ganda‘s “rape joke” that offended veteran journalist Jessica Soho which was ignited by a video clip of the comedian’s sketch in recent concert, another clip surfaced the net showing a series of “rape jokes” in the Kapuso gag show “Bubble Gang.”

GMA-7, in a statement released on Friday, is hoping that the program will not be used to divert the attention of the public from recent “rape joke” issue. The Kapuso Network also said that all personalities involved in the show have already apologized and imposed a policy not to tackle the sensitive issue in their future episodes.

“Video clips of GMA Network’s Entertainment Program “Bubble Gang” have been circulating the past few days showing gags about rape. We would like to clarify that these video clips were aired several years back. In fact, a concerned viewer called the attention of the Network regarding this and the production team of Bubble Gang right away apologized to her and has made it a policy never to tackle the said topic in any of its episodes thereafter.

Bubble Gang has been a top-rating and award-winning program of GMA 7 for almost 18 years. The Network hopes that the program will not be used to divert the attention of the viewers, netizens and the general public from a recent event which has irresponsibly made a joke of this serious topic.”

    kayo naman, kung kanikanino nio pa pinapasa ang issue samantalang LANG pinaguusapan dito ang rape kundi yung paggamit ni vice sa ilang indibidwal at ang pangbabastos nia sa dangal sa direktang tao tulad ni Jessica. Oh bat di nia ginamit si Charo at ung nangyari kay Korina years back involving police officers? dahil takot sia at kapamilya nia? Pati si Nancy Binay eh tinitira din nia dahil alam niang mabait ung tao. Ung bubble gang, naman, nag apologize na sila na may sinseridad after ipalabas un ay di tulad nung kay vice na nagmamalaki pa sia na parang mas magaling sia dahil iintindihin na lang daw nia ung mga tumutuligsa sa kanya. well, aral kay vice yan na ang comedy ay hindi panlalait ng kapwa. dapat matututo sia sa sinabi ni dolphy na ang pagpapatawa ay hindi panlalait sa iba. domino effect yan sa career ni vice. his career is like a comet that crosses the evening sky…gone too soon!

    mag-public apology dapat ang GMA sa via tv dahil sa tv nila ginawa yan…

  4. Ang nagagawa nga naman ng freedom. Wala ng katapusanng comment na maaanghang. Minsan naman ibigay natin ang respeto sa mga taong nagbibigay satin ng saya at pagbabalita. Both parties have their own reasons at ang magagawa na lang natin ay unawain ang bawat isa. Kung ang mga panlalait ay pakakawalan nyo sa magkabilang network di na talaga makakausad ang industriyang ito sa ating bansa. Sana suportahan na lang natin kung sino gusto natin at iwasan na lang ang pagbibitiw ng mga salitang nakasasakit sa kapuwa. Ipakita natin na ang mga filipino ay kapitapitagan na dapat marespeto sa kapuwa. Peace to all

  5. makalagot ang GMA, ngmamalinis.. pwee.
