“YESTERDAY AFTER USING MY NAME IN AN INSULTING MANNER, I THREATENED TO SUE THE WHOLE SHOWTIME IN A CIVIL CASE AND VICE GANDA IN A CRIMINAL CASE,

VICE CALLED ME UP AND I DEMANDED A PUBLIC APOLOGY TO PUT HIM IN HIS PROPER PLACE. TODAY, BILLY READ VICE’S LETTER SINCE HE WAS IN KOREA.

JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE A FAMOUS HOST YOU CAN MAKE FUN OF ANYONE. HERE’S HIS PUBLIC APOLOGY: #knowyourrights

“‘Nais ko pong humingi ng paumanhin kay Mr. Tony Calvento sa pag kakabanggit ko ng kanyang pangalan sa interview ng isang semifinalist ng Tawag ng Tanghalan kahapon. ��Wala po akong intensyon na saktan or insultuhin kayo Mr. Calvento.

Ang tanging intensyon ko ay magbigay ng payo sa aming contestant na magtiwala sa sarili at sa kanyang kakayahan.��Again, my sincerest apologies, Mr. Tony Calvento. Malaki po ang respeto ko sa inyo bilang isang journalist, kaibigan at kapamilya.’

Sincerely,
Vice Ganda”
