De Leon’s comment was a reaction to Ballesteros’ photo with text: 90’s pa more! #DieBeautiful
Ballesteros, who plays “Lola Tidora” in the kalye serye segment of EB, has been absent from the show after he was reportedly suspended for ranting about the lack of coordination among organizers of the Ad Summit held at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone where he was scheduled to appear along with other EB hosts on March 10.
De Leon is son of veteran comedian Joey de Leon, of the show’s main hosts.
