Vice Ganda ‘dances in the rain’ with ‘Showtime’ hosts amid lawsuit, MTRCB suspension
The show hosts danced in the rain—literally and figuratively—to the tune of Diddy and Faith Evans’ hit song “I’ll Be Missing You,” as seen in a video shown by Vice Ganda on his TikTok page on Sunday, Sept. 17.
“Life isn’t about waiting for the rain to stop. It’s about learning to dance in the rain. And we dance together as a family,” the quote in the video reads.
Viewers of the noontime show then took to the comments section to express their support for the hosts, narrating how “It’s Showtime” has become an essential part of their everyday lives.
The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) issued last Sept. 4 its ruling to suspend “It’s Showtime” for 12 airing days due to show hosts and couple Vice Ganda and Ion Perez’s alleged “indecent acts.”
Aside from this, the pair also face a criminal case filed by Kapisanan ng mga Social Media Broadcasters ng Pilipinas Inc. (KSMBPI) which cited a supposed violation of the cybercrime law.
MTRCB chair Diorella “Lala” Sotto-Antonio then denied influencing the group—with whom Sotto had a “special meeting” last Aug. 24—and clarified that their meeting was in connection with the performance of her duties as head of the review body. /ra
