Joey de Leon trends for calling those with depression “nagpapasosyal lang”
The winner of sugod bahay (an Eat Bulaga! segment) on Thursday revealed that a member of their family has depression. But what did studio host Joey de Leon has to say regarding depression?
He called it “gawa-gawa lang ng mga tao yan” and called those with depression “nagpapasosyal.”
But Maine Mendoza took a stand by saying: “Pero hindi biro ‘yan, ha, ‘yang depression… ‘Di s’ya joke… Maraming nakakaranas ng gano’n lalo na sa mga kabataan kaya dapat kapag merong nakakaranas ng gano’n bigyan natin ng suporta.”
Joey de Leon, on the other hand, said that they shouldn’t be supported because “gawa-gawa lang n’ya ‘yon, pabayaan n’yo.”
The comedian and TV host further said that those suffering from the mental illness are “nagpapasosyal lang.”
