NAGLABAS ng isang official statement ang actor/TV host na si Janno Gibbs para bigyang linaw at tapusin na ang usapin ukol sa gulo nila ng kasamahang host, si Kitkat sa Happy Times ng Net 25.
Sa statement kanina na ipinost ni Janno sa kanyang Instagram account, kinumpirma nitong tinanggal na sila ni Kitkat sa pantanghaling show.
“We have both been asked to leave the show,” paglilinaw ni Janno.
Sinabi rin nitong tila hindi nagustuhan ni Kitkat ang ‘innocent, comedic banter’ nila kaya naman gumanti ito ng mga salitang hindi maganda.
Idinagdag ni Janoo na ito ang dahilan kaya nag-react siya rito.
Ayon pa kay Janno, nasaktan din siya sa mga ipinost ng aktres/TV host, kung saan nadamay pati ang kanyang pamilya.
Ipinagpapasalamat naman niya ang pagtatrabaho sa Net 25 at tiniyak na mami-miss niya si Anjo.
Narito ang kabuuan ng statement ni Janno.
“This statement is being written to put this matter to rest once and for all.
“During live TV shows, and especially during game portions, it is usual for the hosts to challenge each other with playful exchange of words or teasing remarks to create more excitement, laughter and fun for the portion.
“All along, I thought that we were having an innocent, comedic banter and that she was playing along, but apparently, she had taken it personally. After she consecutively said several words against me, I was also affected and it made me react the way that I did.
“A series of online posts were made that threatened me and my family. It really hurt me that even my family was dragged into this. In spite of this, I kept quiet and only replied once hoping the issue would die down.
“I have apologized to my co-host and the management of the show. I have also publicly apologized. We have both been asked to leave the show.
“My personal learning is to not react so publicly in situations like this whether on air or online. I have also learned to treat my co-workers with even more sensitivity.
“I remain grateful to Net 25 for the opportunity to work for them. They have treated me well. And I will miss working with my brother, Anjo.”
