Buboy Villar gets called out for being ‘rude’ to ‘Eat Bulaga’ fan who mentioned TVJ
Buboy Villar drew flak after a recent episode of the “G sa Gedli” segment on “Eat Bulaga,” wherein the host seemingly cut off a fan who mentioned the names of the noontime show’s original mainstays Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon, collectively known as TVJ.
During the show’s July 29 episode, Villar and fellow host Isko Moreno went to an LRT station and gave away cash to random commuters. Villar then extended his microphone to an elderly woman who was among the recipients of the cash prize.
“Nanay, ano pong masasabi niyo sa ‘Eat Bulaga’?” Villar asked. (Mother, what can you say about “Eat Bulaga”?)
“Ay naku, noon pa talagang ‘Eat Bulaga’ ako! Salamat po Tito, Vic and—,” the fan replied before Villar quickly pulled the microphone toward him. (Oh, I’ve been a fan of “Eat Bulaga” ever since. Thank you to Tito, Vic and—)
Netizens took notice of this on social media and lashed out at Villar for being “rude,” via the comments section of the actor-TV host’s Instagram page.
Villar has yet to publicly comment on the matter as of this writing.
Meanwhile, “Eat Bulaga” earlier celebrated the noontime show’s 44th anniversary by launching its new theme song. This came amid the ongoing legal battle of TVJ against GMA Network and TAPE Inc., the production company behind the revamped EB. /ra
