Here is the statement:
“Well, we all have our fight, e.
Hindi naman sa hindi ako vocal. Meaning, I’m against it. Actually, pro ano ako… pro-franchise ako.
Siyempre, that’s my mother network now. Marami rin silang naitulong sa akin.
Pero, it’s beyond me. Ibig kong sabihin, their fight is their fight.
I don’t know yung root niyan. Matagal na yung nangyayari.
I don’t know the details, unlike si Atty. [Topacio], alam niya lahat, kasi ‘yan ang field niya.
Ako, bilang isang artista, hindi ko alam. Ang alam ko lang, yung behind camera.
So, I’m really looking forward…
How I see this scenario is the opportunity talaga to cleanse and the opportunity to get better as a network, and also a sign ng government.
Every case naman na ganito, may opportunity to make everything better. Yun na lang ang tinitingnan ko.
Pero to make this ano… para malaman niyo ang side ko, pro-franchise ako.
Pero it’s beyond me. May mas malalim pa kesa sa ipaglalaban ko sa franchise.
May mas malaki pang dahilan kung paano nangyari.”
