When asked about his take regarding on mass testing in the country in a livestream appearance, Loonyo said "Oh my God" as he shook his head. He added: "I just don’t know. It’s like, gagana ba itong bagay na ito sa ganitong ano? 'Di ba? I don't know ano gagamitin nila sa mass testing, but kung ano ipapainom nila, kung ano ipapagawa nila.... It’s a trial and error, kaya it’s mass testing."

His comments didn't sit well with a lot of people who slammed him all over social media for his apparent lack of knowledge regarding the issue.

The social media sensation later addressed the issue and released a public apology, explaining that he had "clinical trials" instead of "mass testing" in mind when he responded to the question. "Nakakalungkot isipin na sa loob ng 2 oras na live with my friends/fam, 5 minutes lang yung kinuha at pinuna. First off, I apologize for the wrong use of terminology in that particular instance. My point is not particulary about the “Covid Mass Testing”; I was actually referring to "CLINICAL TRIALS". I understand that the use of terminology is critical, so I apologize for any confusion caused." Read his full statement below:
