Allan K received mixed reactions regarding his take on suicide on the recent episode of Eat Bulaga!

Allan K was swarmed with mixed reactions on social media after making a remark over a Bawal Judgemental participant's story of how he attempted to commit suicide.

The participant, who is named Anton, recalled his story on the July 29 episode of Eat Bulaga, saying he was kicked out of his house and separated from his grandmother, his only legal guardian, by his uncle from Cebu.

Because of the heartbreaking incident, Anton was left to sleep in a park and work in a public market. He also fell into depression, prompting him to attempt suicide.

As Anton went on with his story, Allan interrupted him, telling how bad it is to commit suicide.

"Anton, ano nagtulak sayo para magpakamatay? Alam mo bang masama 'yong magpakamatay?" the comedian-host questioned. 

Anton answered, saying he was losing hope with life and does not know what to do anymore.

"Wala siyang mapagsabihan, eh." Jose Manalo then said. "Hindi niya nalabas 'yong sama ng loob niya kaya nakimkim 'yon kaya kung ano-ano na pumasok sa isip mo."

Allan then asked Anton how the incident changed his perspective on life.

"Nagsikap po ako," he said. "Naging kargador ho ako sa palengke tapos tig-ta-talo po ang trabaho ko."

Allan K's statement became the talk of the town on social media, with some slamming him for "guilt-tripping" the participant.

On the other hand, some netizens said that Allan should not be chided, but educated about suicide awareness and prevention, especially since he is still grieving from the loss of his two siblings.
