Actress and singer Alex Gonzaga was called out by a netizen for allegedly cracking an “insensitive” joke about drug-related killings.

In a Twitter post, Jericho Rayel Timbol shared an excerpt of Gonzaga’s video blog that allegedly shows her making fun of drug addicts and even blamed people for being drug users.

“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. Second, hindi siya funny. Hindi nakakatawang pagbintangan kang adik,” Timbol said in a tweet on Saturday.

Gonzaga has since apologized to netizens who found her humor annoying and insensitive. She also mentioned Timbol whom she said was very angry at her.

“To some people who find my humor annoying and insentive, 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. Pero sa mga natutuwa, tuloy tayo!!!” Gonzaga said in tweet on Friday.

Gonzaga also drew ire from netizens last May 21 after she allegedly joked about Filipino overseas workers during her trip to Japan. /muf
