His unsolicited advice “Pero kailangan mo pa rin ng lalaki” for contestant Kristel de Catalina, a single mom, did not sit well with some viewers. On the uploaded video of the episode, Robin’s comments were omitted.
Here’s a transcript of the last part of the clip:
Vice Ganda:” Lalong nagpaganda pa yung symbolismo ng ginagawa mo. Pinapakita mo sa buong mundo na ikaw ay isang solo parent. Ikaw ay isang babae, at ang isang babae ay kayang umangat at magningning na nag-iisa.”
Robin: “Pero kailangan mo pa rin ng lalaki.”
Netizens immediatly slam Robin’s remark on Twitter. Some shared their thoughts about the issue, while others were even petitioning his removal as judge on the show.
This was not the first time the action star was called out by netizens. Last January, he also trended online for forcing a Korean contestant to speak in Tagalog.
