Vice Ganda explains walking out on ‘It’s Showtime’ stage

Kapamilya star Vice Ganda surprised viewers by making an abrupt exit from the It’s Showtime stage during its opening number this Saturday.

Clips of the opening number depict Vice becoming visibly upset as the theme song is played. Vice appears to be emotional and having difficulty with the performance. Eventually, he leaves the stage mid-number.

ABS-CBN explains the show of emotion as Vice feeling heavy due to Congress denying the media giant’s franchise renewal.

In a tweet, Vice explains: “Kailangan kong umexit sa point na yun para umiyak. I couldn’t fake it. Pero ok nako after humagulgol.”

Vice was able to carry on with the show after taking a moment for himself off-stage.

On July 10, Congress voted against renewing ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal, effectively shutting down the country’s largest TV network and rendering 11,000 individuals jobless.
