Vice Ganda slams the suggestion of Tito Sotto to revise the last line of Lupang Hinirang
‘It’s Showtime’ host Vice Ganda slammed Senate President Tito Sotto’s suggestion to change the last line of Lupang Hinirang.
The lawmaker suggested that from “ang mamatay nang dahil sa ‘yo”, it should be changed to “ang ipaglaban kalayaan mo.”
Maraming mahina intindimiento. Ayaw nyo? Hwag! But i will support Joey Ayala’s version of singing d Natnl Anthem. Tama pronunciation n intonation. D orig translation frm spanish to eng to Fil is d cause of d wrong cadence of words.

Following the negative comments, the senator rested his case but he said he still prefers the version of Joey Ayala.
On his Twitter post, the comedian-host slammed the 70-year old lawmaker.
“E kung palitan na lang yung last line ng national anthem ng ‘Ang matraffic ng dahil sa’yo’??!! Mas keri ba?” Vice wrote.
