Kim Chiu apologized for using the word "natatae" on It's Showtime to describe the facial expression of Ryan Bang.

Kim Chiu immediately apologized for a word that she used during a live episode of It’s Showtime.

The ABS-CBN actress served as a guest host in the March 6 episode of the Kapamilya noontime show.

Kim was interviewing a “Tawag ng Tanghalan” contestant along with Vhong Navarro and Ryan Bang when she said the inappropriate word.

When the contestant named John Lloyd Cruz as his favorite actor, the TV hosts decided to re-enact a scene from JLC's movie One More Chance.

Kim was supposed to portray Bea Alonzo's character, Ryan was supposed to portray Maja Salvador, while Vhong was assigned to portray John Lloyd.

Ryan was supposed to depict the jealousy felt by Maja's character.

Vhong asked Ryan: "Anong itsura ng nagseselos?"

Ryan then puckered up his face and clenched his fists.

"Bakit parang natatae ka?" Kim quipped. "Parang masakit ang tiyan mo!

"Huwag naman natatae...hindi naman natatae si Maja."

Kim suddenly realized that she was not supposed to say poop on the air during a noontime show.


"Ay sorry. Mali po ang salita ko. Hindi ko pa na-compose yung feelings ko,” Kim said with a laugh.

“Hala, sorry talaga, Direk Bobet [Vidanes]. Hala, last day ko na talaga ‘to," said the actress.

Vhong told viewers: "Pasintabi po sa lahat ng kumakain."

Kim added: "Pasintabi na po sa lahat ng mga nanonood diyan. Wala po ‘yon, guni-guni niyo lang.”

Mariel Padilla turned to Amy Perez and jokingly told her: “T’yang Amy, alam mo na, bukas may public apology ka!”

It will be recalled that in June 2018, Amy was tasked to publicly apologize for an "insensitive" orphan joke cracked by GirlTrends member Erin Ocampo.
