Ooops! Vice Ganda accidentally touched McCoy de Leon's private part while playing a game on It's Showtime.
The June 20 episode, which used the hashtag #ShowtimeHayabayabayu, pitted Team Vice vs. Team Nadine in the Cash-Ya segment.
Vice Ganda served as the team leader of the male group while Nadine Lustre led the female contestants.
When asked how many guys they could fit in the provided woven mat (banig), Vice Ganda confidently said: "Lahat kami [kasya] pwera si Jugs."
Jugs Jugueta exclaimed, "Uy, kasama ako!"
Vice Ganda reiterated, "Lahat kasya! Sampu kasya!" He jokingly told the rival team that they could even fit with them on the banig.
The male contenders then arranged themselves as closely as possible in order to fit on the banig. The winner of this game would win the prize of P5000.
McCoy was about to join their other teammates but the ABS-CBN host pulled him back and said, "McCoy, sa ibabaw tayo."
When McCoy finally lay down on top of the other boys, Vice Ganda accidentally touched the crotch area of the Hashtags member.
McCoy was so surprised that he covered his groin area with his hand.
"Ibang klase dumiskarte si Vice Ganda!" exclaimed Vhong Navarro after they successfully completed the challenge.
Vice Ganda laughed it off by saying, "Tapos na ang toss coin pero may nahahawakan pa rin akong..."
The following day, Vice Ganda issued an apology for the Hashtags member by saying, “McCoy, patawad, di ko talaga sinasadya. Mag-ina tayo, wala tayong malisya. Talagang nagmamadali lang talaga [ako sa game].”
A Twitter user asked the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) to check the crotch-touching incident between the comedian and the 22-year-old actor.
Using the handle @BMakazeta, Brian wrote: “@MTRCBgov paki review ang episode today (june 20, 2017) ng Its Showtime ng Abs-Cbn. Hinawakan ni Vice Ganda ang private part ng isang male host.”
Brian also wrote: "Kahit violated yung hinawakan d yun magrreklamo dahil sa estado ng baklang yan compared sa kanya na baguhan."
