Vice Ganda and Nikko Natividad have yet to face each other after the Hashtags member targeted the “Fantastica” star in a prank that has since gone viral on social media.
The prank call, where a crying Natividad told Vice Ganda he is struggling about being bisexual, happened last Tuesday on MOR 101.9’s “Heartbeats.”
A week later, Vice Ganda said he has only been receiving gifts from Natividad, who had appeared to regret misleading the supportive comedian in what unfolded as an earnest conversation.
“Mula noong araw na iyon hanggang ngayon, hindi ka pa nagpapakita sa akin,” Vice Ganda said during the live episode of “It’s Showtime” Monday, as he invited Natividad, in jest, to join the newly launched second season of Miss Q&A, a pageant of wits for gay men and transgender women.
“Tutal nag-out ka naman sa akin, ini-invite kita sumali rito, Hashtag Nikko,” he said. “Hindi nagpapakita, nagpapadala lang ng kung anu-anong pagkain sa dressing room ko.”
Vice Ganda’s co-hosts, Vhong Navarro and Teddy Corpuz, teased that Natividad might be afraid of facing and getting scolded by the comedian.
As one of the members of Hashtags, Natividad is a regular on “It’s Showtime.” He, however, has also been busy promoting his film “Bakwit Boys,” as well as taping for the primetime teleserye “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.”
