Wednesday, 29 May 2013 0 comments

On May 28, GMA 7 vice president for news programs and news anchor Jessica Soho reacts on comedian Jose Marie Viceral—more popularly known as Vice Ganda—a talent of rival network ABS-CBN, for a “cruel” joke the latter made about her during his recent concert.

In a statement sent to GMA News Online on Tuesday, Soho said: "Rape is not a joke and should never be material for a comedy concert."

She added: "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."

Soho is the host of the evening news program "State of the Nation" on GMA News TV and of "Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho" on GMA. The latter is the network's top-rated program. She is also the Vice President for News Programs of GMA Network.

She studied at the University of the Philippines and has won numerous accolades, including the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award, in her career as a broadcast journalist for more than two decades.

Soho has also been repeatedly named as the most trusted news personality in the country.
Meanwhile, Arnold Clavio, who is known to be an advocate against gay discrimination and bullying lambasted Vice Ganda.

“Papatulan ko na siya kasi pag di natin siya sinita, hindi natin alam sino pa’ng isusunod niyang biktimahin. Si Nancy Binay noon, tapos si Jessica Soho,” Clavio further said.

Aside from Clavio, three other GMA News personalities Jiggy Manicad, Mark Salazar and Maki Pulido, on Twitter, expressed their sentiments on Vice Ganda's unacceptable jokes involving Soho and "rape" issue.

Jiggy Manicad (@jiggymanicad):
Para kay Vice Ganda, personal ko ito. Hindi joke ang salitang "rape." Pakiretweet po hanggang makaabot sa kanya.

Jiggy Manicad (@jiggymanicad):
At para mas maintindihan mo Vice Ganda, ipapakilala kita sa ilang biktima para maramdaman mo ang trauma nila. Bad joke bro.Pls retweet.

Jiggy Manicad (@jiggymanicad):
@vicegandako Para sa iyo Vice Ganda I hope you got my message loud and clear.

Rape is not a joke. It's not funny. It's violence vs women. It's a dark day when rape joke is made in a coliseum full of people.

maki pulido (@makipulido)
Vice ganda should realize that rape is not a joke. That rape is a form of violence. Pls RT hanggang umabot sa kanya.

@jkballentes @makipulido kaya nirerespeto ko si dolphy, naging legend sya nang hindi namamahiya ng kapwa tao. Yun ang henyong komedyante.
