Joey De Leon apologizes for remark on depression

Joey De Leon apologizes for remark on depression

Veteran comedian Joey De Leon made a public apology on  Eat Bulaga prior to the start of Juan for All, All for Juan segment on Friday, October 6.

This was in relation to his remark trivializing depression as "gawa-gawa lang iyan ng tao" during the same segment. Becaise of this, the host drew flak from netizens and his name trended on Twitter all day yesterday.

In his speech, De Leon admitted he made a mistake that stress and depression are just of the same level.

"Huwag nyong asahan na alam ko ang lahat ng mga bagay sa mundo. Habang nabubuhay po tayo ay natututo ng mga bagong bagay-bagay. Nagkamali po ako.", said Joey.

He also shared that when he returned home, his wife Eileen, lectured and explained him that they have close relatives suffering from depression.

"Humihingi po ako paumanhin sa mga napaitan sa mga nabanggit ko at humihingi ng inyong unawa."

He also shared that he also called Maine Mendoza last night as it was her who took a stand from his remarks.

"Medyo nakaluwag iyong paghinga ko. Hirap na ako matulog hanggang hindi umabot ang pagkakataon na ito."

"Kung may idudulot mang mabuti iyong aking pagkakamali, sanay mabuksan nito ang maraming pinto sa pagtalakay sa isyung ito. Hindi ko alam na ganun kalawak at kalalim pa liyo.n"

"So muli humihingi po ako ng kapatawaran sa mga nasaktan, nagalit. Im sorry."

In the end, he left this quote,

"May kasabihan naman tayo na mapait man ang ugat ng karunungan o edukasyon, karaniwan naman na matamis ang ibinubunga nito"
