Mental health advocates over social media wanted DZMM host Jobert Sucaldito to be held responsible over a suicide-related remark against Nadine Lustre while on-air last Monday, January 6. Some even went as far as to ask for Sucaldito's suspension or termination from the radio network.

Even siblings Kiana and Gab Valenciano, host Bianca Gonzales, news anchor Karen Davila, and director Antoinette Jadaone took to Twitter to defend Nadine and others who suffer from mental health problems, and slammed Sucaldito for making light of their struggles.

On his late-night program "Showbuzz," Sucaldito called out the actress for supposedly disrespecting Ricky Lo with her savage clapback. At one point, Sucaldito encouraged Nadine to jump off the balcony of a building, in reference to a recent photo she shared on Instagram.

Sucaldito has since issued an apology to Nadine via a statement broadcast on DZMM. It read: "I would like to apologize to Ms. Nadine Lustre and to those who got bothered by that sa aspetong ito. I am also apologizing to my radio network DZMM for putting them in discomfort because of this."

Earlier today, ABS-CBN News head Ging Reyes also issued a statement, saying: “We in ABS-CBN News take the issue of mental health very seriously. This was even the subject of a recent documentary that was produced. We are investigating reports that DZMM host Jobert Sucaldito uttered inappropriate and insensitive comments regarding actress Nadine Lustre’s state of mental health. Our journalists and other members of our team are accountable for their on-air statements.”
