Feel na feel ang wang wang! Jo Koy draws flak for using police escorts to counterflow in Cebu traffic
Filipino-American stand-up comedian Jo Koy is drawing flak from netizens for using police escorts to speed up his travel in Cebu’s roads.
Jo Koy, whose real name is Joseph Glenn Herbert, shared a one-minute video of police escorts using sirens to help his van speed past other vehicles.
When their convoy counterflowed, Jo Koy remarked: “We’re on the other side… This is crazy, bro!”
“Two-hour drive, we got here in 15 minutes!” he bragged upon reaching his hotel.
Netizens, however, were displeased about the special treatment Jo Koy received.
“Episode 4: Where JoKoy learns the thrill of entitlement,” tweeted ABS-CBN journalist Chiara Zambrano.
Actress Chai Fonacier said: “Can someone enlighten me re: rules on providing police escorts? I’m not sure I’m liking this…”
Netizen @yourtitakate said: “Jo Koy was given a police escort to his hotel while thousands of Cebuanos suffered the hellish traffic from Mactan into metro Cebu. Also might I add it’s Sinulog season so the traffic must be 10x worse. We caper to foreigners, and the foreigners take advantage of it. It sucks.”
Twitter user @GeraldErmino said: “Ba’t ganun ig story ni jo koy? Am I the only one who think na parang mali yung paghawi ng mga escort sa traffic?”
