Miss Universe Titlists Pia Wurtzbach, Catriona Gray Speak Up As ABS-CBN Franchise Denied

MISS UNIVERSE QUEENS – Filipino Miss Universe titlists Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray spoke up after ABS-CBN’s franchise bid denied.

On Friday, June 10, the House of Committee on Legislative Franchises effectively shut down media giant ABS-CBN Corp. for good. The tv network had been trying to renew its franchise since 2014.

However, the company faced a lot of roadblocks, especially under President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s administration. Last December, the Davaoeño politician vowed to block the company’s franchise renewal.

Miss Universe Queens Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray were among the celebrities who spoke up after the House panel denied the Kapamilya network’s franchise bid. Both of them are contract artists of the network.

On Twitter, Miss Universe 2018 said: “For the disheartened. For the hurting. I’m so sorry. For those who delight in the suffering of others, I pray your hardened hearts be softened.”

“We continue on. But we will never forget,” Catriona wrote, with a Philippine flag emoji and hearts emojis in red, green, and blue, symbolizing the ABS-CBN network.


Meanwhile, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach shared a photo of the Kapamilya network’s headquarters on her Instagram account. It came with a caption, “Home (broken heart emoji) #ForeverKapamilya.”

“And when our children tell our story, they’ll tell the story of tonight,” she wrote.
