(SPOT.ph) Vice Ganda is at the center of another controversy, this time involving his billboard ads promoting an upcoming concert in Cebu City on July 19.
City Administrator and Cebu City Anti-Indecency Board (CCAIB) chairman Lucelle Marcello has ordered the removal of the billboards, saying, "It’s sexually suggestive. The board hasn’t met yet about it but as chairman of CCAIB, I already took action. We don’t want to just wait since there are already a lot of people who’ve seen that."
According to Councilor Lea Japson, another CCAIB member, she received complaints on July 5 "from private individuals and religious groups." The billboards were reportedly taken down July 6, but local concert organizers TSE Live Inc. said that they have been up for almost two weeks and were only informed of the problem Monday morning.
Promoters said they will not be replacing the billboards to avoid "added costs." Vice's camp has yet to issue a statement.
