Yap took to social media to vent his displeasure at his Meralco billing, which he found ridiculously high. He was charged more than P55,000.
“A lot of people have been complaining about their @meralco bill. Instead of billing the average of 3months they have been multiplying our bill 3x. How did our bill end up this big when we’ve been paying our monthly bills?,” Yap tweeted.

Yap got a canned response in just 30 minutes from the power utility giant, which some people thought was unfair.
Buti pa sayo nagreply 😆 sakin waley. Kailangan ata artista 😆 grabe ganyan talaga sila walang basehan. Hula hula lang sobrang singil nila parang 5x pa!

He clarified he just really wanted answers to justify the bill shock.
Kalma lang naman ako, nagtatanong lang naman 😊
