Vice Ganda started, “I just would like to personally apologize nga pala, Kasi last time, I wasn’t able to personally say my apologies to Mr. Tony Calvento, who got offended when his name was dragged during the discussion noong nakaraang linggo (last week).”

He explained that his concert engagement in South Korea is the reason for his delayed apology.

Although there was a delay in the public apology, Vice Ganda still continued with the demand for a personal public apology demanded by Calvento. The comedian also shared that he already called the journalist to personally apologize upon hearing of his outrage.

Gayunpaman nakausap ko naman siya. Tumawag ako sa kanya’t nag-apologize na rin ako personally. At ito, gusto ko pa ring gawin. Pasensiya na po. I apologize,” he said.
