Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla drew laughter and flak from social media users after an unexpected remark mistakenly came out of his mouth.

After the basketball match between Bacoor City Strikers and Bulacan Kuyas which took place last July 12 at the Strike Gym in Bacoor City, Cavite, Revilla thanked the fans of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) for watching the game.

However, his live interview did not end well after he accidentally says, “Tama ‘yang ginagawa ninyo, bola muna bago droga.”

After realizing his mistake, Revilla quickly corrected himself and clarified that, “bola, hindi droga”, was what he meant to say.

Clips of the said interview quickly spread like wildfire on social media and every netizen who shared the video shared their own reaction to it.

Most of the social media users who watched the video found Revilla’s mistake hilarious.

But there are also some who said that there are deeper implications to Revilla’s remark.

Rocco Nacino wants to slap Revilla

One of the reactions to Revilla’s remark that caught the most attention was that of Filipino actor Rocco Nacino.

On his Twitter account, Nacino wrote: “Bola muna bago droga… sarap sampalin.”

Many netizens did not like Nacino’s tweet and called him out for it. The actor has since deleted the tweet and replaced it with a message of apology.

“Mali na nag-comment ng ganon, pasensya na at ako’y humihingi ng tawad sa mga nagalit. It just really made my day! At the end of the day, tao nga lang talaga tayo lahat nagkakamali,” he said.
