GMA News Online reports that broadcast journalist Jessica Soho has reacted to a joke made by comedian Vice Ganda during his concert about her being in an imagined rape scenario, saying that "Rape is not a joke and should never be material for a comedy concert."

 

Part of Soho's statement, which was quoted in the report, read: "I thank all those who shared my hurt and expressed their support, but this should not be about me but about rape victims who suffer tremendously from this terrible crime. The horrors they go through are unspeakable and should never be taken lightly, especially by way of a cruel joke."

 

According to the report, Vice Ganda joked during his concert on May 17 "that if Soho were a bold star in a movie, the scene would have to involve a 'gang rape.' The comedian made fun of Soho’s physique for a full two minutes before moving on to other celebrities." Video clips of the concert segment where the comedian poked fun at Soho have been uploaded by various netizens on YouTube.
