In It’s Showtime’s “Tawag ng Tanghalan,” Vice was in a playful banter with co-host Jhong Hilario over a contestant’s song choice. Makki Lucino sang the song “Clown” by Emeli Sandé; explaining that he relates to the song because he makes others laugh even though he is facing problems in life.

Jhong agreed and said he and the other hosts of “It’s Showtime” are also like that whenever they go on air.

Vice, however, opted for a humorous and cryptic response. He said while looking directly at the camera, “Hindi ako clown. I’m a comedian. At may kilala akong clown.”

He repeated while still facing the camera, “I am a comedian. You are the clown.”

Netizens were quick to assume that the message was for Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque who earlier threw shade at Vice for his opinion on the government’s covid-19 vaccination program.

“Sa sabong panlaba nga choosy tayo e sa bakuna pa kaya. Ano to basta may maisaksak lang?! Vaklang twoooaahhh!!!” Vice tweeted.

He made the remark following Roque’s controversial statement that the public shouldn’t be picky when it comes to the government’s COVID-19 vaccine.

Without mentioning names, Roque told the public not to be swayed by the opinion of comedians and instead, believe in experts.

Roque sinagot ang pasaring ni Vice Ganda tungkol sa pagiging ‘choosy’ sa bakuna

He said, “Mali naman na ikumpara ang bakuna sa sabong panlaba… Hindi lang isa, hindi lang dalawa, kundi tatlong grupo pa ng eksperto ang magsusuri kung ang mga bakuna ay ligtas at epektibo.”

“Kung hindi naman po natin pagtitiwalaan ang mga experts… sino ang ating pagtitiwalaan? Siguro po hindi mga komedyante,” Roque added.
