Joey De Leon Receives Criticisms For His "Plastic" CommentJoey de Leon was lambasted by netizens after calling "plastic" the three major television networks--ABS-CBN, GMA-7 and TV5--on his Twitter account @angpoetnyo.
Posted on November 21, the comedian and TV host said: "Just asking: Akala ko ba nagkakaisa Pilipino pag may calamity. Bakit may kanya-kanyang Songs for Yolanda victims ang 3 TV Stations? Plastic!"
It is not clear what prompted the infamous TV host to air the said comment although recent weeks saw the three networks come up with different music videos for the victims of Yolanda. The music videos showed the resiliency of the Filipino people in light of the catastrophes that came their way this year.
Netizens didn't take kindly to Joey's words. Most of them answered back and criticized him for making such an insensitive post. One Twitter post even said that even "Eat Bulaga" is included in those Joey said were "plastic" since the noontime show airs on GMA-7.
