MANILA, Philippines — Former “It’s Showtime” host Eric “Eruption” Tai showed his support to the embattled noontime show after the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) filed a 12-day suspension order. 

In an exclusive interview with Philstar.com during the recent launch of 2 Kings Productions, Eruption said he hopes that the noontime show hosts will learn from the controversy. 

“It kind of goes both ways. I don’t really know the depth of the situation pero I think we’re in the position to entertain people. In some ways, they could be offending others, and (to) some, just a joke or no harm. For me, we just got to be careful on what we do,” he said.  

“Kung ano 'yung klaseng situation 'yung ginagawa natin kailangang mag-ingat lang tayo kasi there’s kids watching. Kids probably won’t understand it that way pero other people will say ‘hey, hey, panget 'yan',” he added. 

When asked if he supports the noontime show in their battle now, Eruption said: “I’m no longer part of the show.”

“I supported in a way that it was where I started my career and I’m always thankful for them. But I have nothing negative to say in general on what’s going on but the only thing I can say is just be safe on how we conduct ourselves on TV,” he added. 

Founded with a passion for world-class entertainment and creating unparalleled experiences, 2Kings Productions is the newest player in the events and concert scene. While this local production company has just launched, its founders are seasoned individuals with expertise when it comes to entertainment.  

One-half of this power duo is Henry Angelo Pantollana – an entrepreneur with several successful businesses under his sleeve, spanning through different categories –  medical, digital and even trading. With his penchant for good music and experiences paired with his business acumen, he has a lot to bring to the table in this new venture.  He is also celebrating his birthday along with the launch.  

The other half is Moy Macasero also known as “Moymoy Palaboy," the first ever Filipino Youtube sensation who has made a name for himself in mainstream entertainment as an actor, comedian, singer and songwriter. He was a former MTRCB Board of Director (2017-2022) and is currently the Vice Chairman of the Optical Media Board.
