Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) Inc. released its official statement after Eat Bulaga’s hosts Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, Joey De Leon and the rest of the Dabarkads resigned from the said company.
On it’s Instagram story, TAPE Inc. said the program will continue its commitment to provide entertainment to the widest sector possible:
“TAPE, INC. is saddened by the turn of events yesterday, May 31, but we respect the decision of the hosts to leave Eat Bulaga and GMA 7 Network, which has been their home for 28 years.
We are happy for the full support of GMA 7 in making Eat Bulaga bigger, to bring more fun and excitement to every Filipino. We want to assure the public and the supporters of the show through its segments that we are committed to provide quality entertainment.
It is unfortunate, but life must go on. As with life, we have to accept changes, but we have a duty to every Filipino.
The success of Eat Bulaga is not dependent only on three people but on the collaborative efforts of its talents, crew, and loyal viewers.
Abangan ninyo ang mga bagong magpapasaya at magpapatibok ng ating mga puso. Aasahan ninyo ang mas masaya, mas nakakaaliw at higit pa sa isang libo’t isang tuwa na Eat Bulaga. Patuloy ang Dabarkads na maglilingkod para sa inyo, mga Kapuso mula Aparri hanggang Jolo at sa buong mundo.
Ang pag-alis ng mga hosts ay hindi dahilan para tumigil ang pag-ikot ng mundo.”
