On his Instagram account on Tuesday, March 25, Vice Ganda posted a photo of him and Senator Nancy Binay. In the caption, Vice stated, "Love! Love! Love! Happy Birthday Love! Love! Love! Happy Birthday @bernardcloma!!! ??????@nancybinay.”
The comedian and the senator were both present at the birthday party of show producer Bernard Cloma. This marked as their reconciliation after Vice and Sen. Binay were embroiled in a controversy in 2013 when the comedian commented about Nancy's decision to run as senator despite her lack of experience in politics. “Parang ‘yung mga politiko ngayon, wala ngang background [sa politics]. Walang political background pero senador agad. Pwede naman palang ganon,” Vice commented in an interview last year.
“Wala naman akong sinabing masama. I am only responsible [for] what I say. I’m not responsible [for] what people understand. Pero ako, sinasabi ko na malinis naman ang sinabi ko. Ako ay nag-state lang naman ng fact," he added.
Despite Vice’s comment, Senator Binay remained open to meet the comedian and to even guest star in Gandang Gabi Vice. “Siguro kung makuha ko ang kanyang formal invitation, why not di ba? Mukhang enjoy naman ang show,” senator Binay said.
Netizens expressed their approval of this reconciliation.
“Tawa ako dito e. Nakaka gulat!! xD spread the love, yan tayo e idol :)),” netizen @n3orove commented.
“It’s so nice to see you guys get along well nman pla,” @buchholzstagram said. “Wow, new bff. ;),” @kingjijifinnah stated.
