A day after Wowoweehost Willie Revillame publicly defended comedienne Pokwang against Joey de Leon's comic skit during Eat Bulaga's show inLos Angeles, California, the iconic yet controversial comedian along with co-hostsVic Sotto and Jimmy Santos once more dropped the word "aswang" in Eat Bulaga's "Ang Joke Ko" segmentearlier today, August 19.
The skit showed the three taking turns in bragging abouttheir lolo's cool nerves when confronted by an "aswang."
The lines delivered by the three, particularly by Joey,never seem to take a slant against anyone until the tail end of the entireskit.
"May tanong ka pa?" Joey egged Vic.
"Anong pangalan ng lola mo?" Vic dutifully asked hispartner.
Wearing a perplexed expression, Joey asked back, "Pangalanng lola ko, na aswang?"
"Oo," Vic replied.
Stammering, Joey quipped, "Po... Po... Puring! Puring!"
IGNITING OLD FEUD. Joeyis once again being attacked after dishing out a parody number during Eat Bulaga's last U.S. visit.
Borrowing the tune of John Lennon's anthemic single"Imagine," Joey typically changed the lyrics and was heard inserting the lines:"Channel 2's the only one / Makikita araw-araw ay mukha lang ni Pokwang..."
The next lines left a bad taste in the mouth of some listeners: "Makikita araw-araw / Ay mukhalang ng aswang..."
Yesterday, August 18, Willie once again used his noontimeprogram, Wowowee, as a podium to lambastJoey and the content of his Los Angeles parody.
"Sana ho kung magbibiro tayo puwede naman kayongmag-compose ng kantang hindi kayo nakakasakit ng kapwa n'yo, e. Wala akongkinantang nakasakit ng kapwa ko," said Willie, who called Pokwang to his sidewhile delivering his message.
"Hindi ka banagkakaroon ng puso sa kapwa mo Pilipino, pati babae ginaganyan mo?" fumedWillie.
Pokwang, for her part, simply thanked those who sympathized withher by saying, "Pero sa lahat po ng nagtanggol sa akin, maraming-maramingsalamat po. Sa lahat po ng naniniwala, thank you po. Pagpalain kayo ni Lord.Thank you po."
