Social media users have mixed reactions to Dagul ‘being replaced’ in the new ‘Goin’ Bulilit’

The return of Goin’ Bulilit is set to air starting July 1 and some may have noticed that a core cast member would not be returning for the hit sketch comedy show’s comeback.

Goin’ Bulilit has recently announced their new cast for the return of the show but it does not include the iconic part of the show, Dagul.

Content creator Renz Joshua Baña also known as “Baby Giant” will be filling in the shoes of Dagul in the show.

Dagul’s daughter Jkhriez Pastrana came forward on TikTok during her live and was saddened by the news that her father would not be part of the new cast.

Nalulungkot din daw siya guys. Gusto niya kasi na mapanood niyo pa rin siya. So dito sa live namin, gamit yung live na ‘to, dito ko siya pinopost gamit ‘tong TikTok kasi wala siyang social media guys. Walang social media si papa [He’s also sad guys. He wants you guys to be able to still watch him. So here in this live, using this live, I post them here using this TikTok because he doesn’t have social media. Dad doesn’t have social media accounts.],” as stated by his daughter in the video.

@xyiacea nalulungkot din kami knowing hindi kinuha si dagul for goin bulilit,since dati siya yung nagdadala ng saya sa mga tao, siya yung bida sa goin bulilit at siya yung idolo ko dun sa goin bulilit. pero nauunawaan din natin na matanda na si dagul at may nararamdaman na din siya pero sa sinabi ni ate jkhriez na okay naman daw si dagul. stop spreading fake news na may sakit na si dagul kasi hindi naman daw totoo base sa sinabi ni ate jkhriez sa live nya, kasi nasasaktan din si ate jkhriez bilang anak na ginagawan ng issue yung papa nya so please stop making fake news po. kahit hindi na kasama si dagul sa goin bulilit, gusto niya parin na panuorin natin sya through live ni ate @Jkhriez Pastrana. let us support them 💗 #fyp #foryou ♬ original sound – xy

Upon garnering reactions from the masses, his daughter clarified the issue stating that she has no issues with the casting.

In another video, she stated, “Gusto ko lang i clear sa inyo na hindi ako malungkot dahil wala si papa sa Goin’ Bulilit. Nalulungkot lang ako sa mga issue na lumalabas and okay lang sa akin na wala si papa sa Goin’ Bulilit [I just want to make it clear to you that I’m not sad because my dad is not on Goin’ Bulilit. I’m only sad about the issues that are coming out, and it’s okay with me that my dad is not on Goin’ Bulilit.]”

Okay lang sa amin guys kasi choice nila yun so I’m so happy din sa bago pero nalulungkot ako guys dahil sa mga issue na nangyayari ganon. Ayoko kasi ng issue guys. Mas gusto ko lang na clear tayong lahat and good vibes. [It’s okay with us guys because that’s their choice so I’m so happy for the new cast but I’m sad because of the issue that is happening like that. I don’t like issues guys. I just really want to be clear with all of you and have good vibes],” she ended her statement.
