Is Vice Ganda’s ‘Kamusta presinto?’ comment meant for rumored ex Terrence Romeo after his bar brawl?
Was Vice Ganda’s humorous greeting meant for rumored ex-boyfriend TNT KaTropa cager Terrence Romeo, after the latter’s recent bar brawl?
This comes after Romeo was involved in a scuffle at a bar on Tomas Morato, Quezon City. He later went to his Twitter and posted, “I didn’t do anything,” saying that he did not throw one punch when the brawl escalated.
Although he has never confirmed their past romance, Vice could not help but inject humor when he made the greeting. This happened in the “Tawag ng Tanghalan” segment of ABS-CBN’s “It’s Showtime” on Thursday.
The comedian and fellow host Vhong Navarro interviewed a female contestant, who opened up about breaking up with her boyfriend. Despite their relationship that did not work out, she said the two of them remain friends.
As the contestant made the remark, Vice suddenly interrupted and objected: “Hindi naman totoong nagiging magkaibigan ang magka-ex (It’s not true that ex-lovers can be friends).” He went on: “Magkakilala lang kayo, ayos kayo, pero di kayo magkaibigan (You just know each other, you’re just okay, but you’re not friends).”
Suddenly, Navarro asked Vice: “Kung may pagkakataon lang na mag-hi ka sa kanya, pwede bang mag-hi ka?” (If there’s a chance for you to say ‘Hi’ to him, can you say it)?”
To which the camera panned to Vice and he said, “Hi. Kamusta presinto (Hi. How’s the police precinct)?”and then burst into laughter.
Some netizens quickly noticed that Vice’s greeting might be alluding to his former flame. A certain miiiytch (@mich040718) found the comedian’s message hilarious and said that he was updated.
Meanwhile, Pinoy Showbiz Shade (@PinoyShade) was not aware of Romeo’s recent brawl until he found out on Facebook.
And Isaay. (@isayxxime) thought that Vice’s greeting was hilarious, and even asked Romeo, “Kamusta raw ba, Terrence (You’re being asked how’s it going, Terrence)?”
It was years back when rumors of Romeo—who was still a player for the Far Eastern University Tamaraws—and Vice in a relationhip first broke out. In 2014, the comedian hinted that he and his boyfriend of five years broke up. The cager has denied the romance ever happened. Katrina Hallare /ra
