MANILA, Philippines -- Netizens were abuzz on Tuesday over a photo posted on Instagram by "It's Showtime" co-host Jhong Hilario that partly showed the actor-dancer's penis.
In his Instagram account, Hilario posted a photo collage of him relaxing in a bathtub, including one that accidentally showed the tip of his penis.
Although the actor immediately deleted the photo, several websites, notably the popular showbiz blog Fashion Pulis, already uploaded Hilario's photo.
On the ABS-CBN noontime program "It's Showtime" on Tuesday, comedian Vice Ganda tried to make light of the controversial photo.
"Ako, kahit anong buhok ang nasa ulo mo masaya ako," Vice Ganda told Hilario, who praised his new black hair.
Hilario replied: "Kalokalike lang 'yon!"
"Kung gusto niyo po ng mas malinaw, may kopya ako," the comedian told viewers.
Below are some of the reactions over Hilario's photo.
"Shower again and again. Whew! Naisip ko kung may tub kami try ko gawin yung kay Jhong. Hahaha! Makaligo na nga ulit," user iam_froilan tweeted.
