After her gig in Korea, Vice Ganda returns to his hosting duties on the Kapamilya noontime show “It’s Showtime” on Thursday, August 17. And he finally apologized to Tony Calvento live on national television regarding his joke last week comparing the veteran journalist to a contestant of “Tawag ng Tanghalan.”
“I just would like to personally apologize nga pala. Kasi last time, I wasn’t able to personally say my apologies to Mr. Tony Calvento, who got offended when his name was dragged during the discussion noong nakaraang linggo. Pasensiya na po kayo. I personally apologize. Pasensiya na kung naantala dahil ako’y nasa Korea. Gayunpaman nakausap ko naman siya. Tumawag ako sa kanya at nag-apologize ako personally. At ito, gusto ko pa ring gawin. Pasensiya na po. I apologize,” he said.
After the apology, Calvento posted an old photo of Vice on Facebook with the caption:
VICE’S PERSONAL APOLOGY ACCEPTED. ALL IS WELL. LET’S MOVE ON VICE.
