On September 3, a Twitter account with the handle @manalo_jose "confirmed" the absence of Eat Bulaga host Wally Bayola due to his alleged involvement in a viral sex video with EB Babes dancer Yosh Rivera. Wally was also absent on September 2, the day the controversial video was first uploaded.

Hindi nyo po muna mapapanood ngayon si Wally dahil sa kadahilanan na kumakalat na iskandalo,” the tweet read. “Pinasya muna pagpahingahin muna si Wally ng mga EB Staff habang mainit pa ang isyu at aayusin muna ang mga problema (Wally won’t be appearing on the show for now because of the scandal. The EB staff decided to let Wally take a break and to fix his problems while the issue is still hot.).”

That night, several news portals included the tweet in their reports. But PEP.ph says that at around 11:00 P.M. on the same day, the official Twitter account of Eat Bulaga said that the tweet did not come from comedian Jose Manalo, who is Wally’s partner in one of the show’s segments.

Hi mga Dabarkads! Wala pong Twitter account si Dabarkads Jose (Hi Dabarkads! Dabarkads Jose doesn’t own a Twitter account),” read the tweet.

However, 24 Oras reporter Nelson Canlas revealed on the same day that he was able to speak to Malou Choa-Fagar, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Eat Bulaga as well as the talent manager of Jose and Wally.

Pansamantala raw hindi mapapanood ang comedian-host sa noontime show na Eat Bulaga (The comedian-host will be temporarily absent from the noontime show Eat Bulaga!)!” Nelson said in his report.
