Good news came in earlier this week for Vice Ganda after the FAMAS Awards announced that he would be the first-ever recipient of the Dolphy Lifetime Achievement Award.
A symbol of his success in the industry for over 18 years, thousands of his fans and followers celebrated for this new milestone of his career. After all, an honor named after no less than Dolphy Quizon — the country’s King of Comedy — is perhaps the only validation a comedian would need to show for his prowess.
It would seem, however, that not everyone on the Internet was too happy that Vice Ganda has bagged the Dolphy award.

In a report made by Gorgy Rula for PEP Alerts, the showbiz reporter questioned FAMAS’ decision to give the honor to the Unkabogable star. For him, there are far better comedians out there who have already earned the award, like, say, veteran comedians Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon.
Mere days after the juicy scoop was published online, Vice clapped back at Rula through a tirade of tweets.

Currently in Vancouver, the comedian said that he picked up the news from Twitter.
In his next tweet, Vice bluntly stated that he doesn’t know Rula, before calling him out for refusing to respect FAMAS’ decision.
We bet that the showbiz reporter involved couldn’t be ready for the “It’s Showtime” host’s display of his classic sarcasm.
Capping off his speech, Vice Ganda clarified that he’s not mad at Rula, and, in fact, only wants to make him happy.
