Netizen with Twitter handle @jerichorayel calls out Alex Gonzaga for insensitive joke about drug users. Alex responds with a now-deleted apology on her Twitter account: "To some people who find my humor annoying and [insensitive], sorry."


Alex Gonzaga draws flak on Twitter after netizen @jerichorayel called out the actress-vlogger for her "insensitive" actions in her recent vlog entry.

Alex and her friends were at Cubao Expo, creating a vlog about the popular vintage shops and specialty stores in the block.

In between their mini-tour, Alex stopped by a random group of men along the shopping strip.

The netizen highlighted this particular moment in his tweet and posted a video of Alex displaying her signature humor to these bystanders.

In the video, she said, "Anong pinagbubulungan natin?

"O, ano? Mag-ihi tayo, drug test tayo."

These sound bites were paired with comedic sound effects.

Alex then defused the situation with her dab dance and immediately retreated from the situation saying, "Galit na siya sa akin, parang papatayin na niya ako."

Off-camera, she added, "Joke lang, o. Ito naman, o."

The scene in question was only part of the vlog's opening reel, and there wasn't any other scene prior to that that would explain why Alex made such assumptions about the bystanders.

But it was because of these indirect implications that the netizen felt compelled to call out Alex in his tweet.

The netizen began, "This is a clip of the Cubao Expo vlog of Alex Gonzaga. This is so insensitive on so many levels especially now that the government is out there killing people tagged as drug users."

He also underlined, "Second, hindi siya funny. Hindi nakakatawang pagbintangan kang adik."

This tweet seemed to have reached Alex on Twitter, prompting the ABS-CBN star to issue an apology.

Tagging @jerichorayel, she said, "To some people who find my humor annoying and [insensitive], sorry.

"How I wish you may never see or click any of my videos again. Lalo na sayo @jerichorayel kasi sobra na galit mo at tinag mo pa ko.

This tweet was later deleted by Alex after she and the netizen sorted things out through direct messaging on Twitter.

This wasn't the first time Alex drew flak for her actions.

Earlier this year, a short video clip of Pia Wurtzbach's December 2017 guesting on ASAP Chill Out made rounds online after Alex was caught touching the upper part of the beauty queen's chest.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in February 2018, Alex defended herself by saying that it was only a joke.

She said, "Actually, nagtawanan nga kami after [ni Pia.]

"Hindi ko alam kung na-offend siya."

Alex acknowledged that her humor was not for everyone.
