MANILA -- Comedian Vice Ganda apologized to GMA news anchor Jessica Soho during the former's noontime program Showtime on Wednesday.

Vice said on Wednesday that he called Soho earlier today to apologize.

Vice earlier drew criticisms from netizens after his joke about Soho during the comedian's "I-Vice Ganda Mo 'Ko sa Araneta" concert last May 17. Vice made fun of Soho's weight and joked that if Soho was a bold star in a movie, the scene would have to involve a gang rape.

"Rape is not a joke and should never be material for a comedy concert," Soho, who is GMA's Vice President for News and Public Affairs, earlier said in a statement.

Kane Errol Choa, ABS-CBN head of Corporate Affairs and Public Relations, also tweeted Vice's statement on Showtime:

"Sa lahat po ng nasaktan, buong puso akong humihingi ng paumanhin. Pinapalangin ko na patawarin niyo po ako. Sa mga nagagalit, kung hindi nyo ako mauunawaan, ako ang uunawa sa inyo..." Vice added.
