ABS-CBN SHUT DOWN – These are the quotes that made a mark coming from these famous stars regarding the shutdown of ABS-CBN.

July 10, 2020, marked the shutdown of the biggest media network in the country, the ABS-CBN. After 13 comprehensive and exhaustive congressional hearings about their alleged violations, they proved their innocence but were still denied to have a fresh franchise by 70 lawmakers who agreed to dump their application. Jumping to digitalized programs, they remained seen and watched by their loyal viewers.

The Lopez-owned broadcast firm closed down and it prompted them to let go a huge portion of their employees amid the pandemic. The closure sent shockwaves across the country and reached other country’s headlines. Chairman Mark Lopez also said to people, “It’s painful for us that we are being shut down, but it’s also painful for millions of our countrymen who believe that our service is important to them.”

To recall, President Duterte has always been vocal in saying that he’s going to shut them down and being engaged in a feud with the network after they haven’t broadcast his paid campaign ads during the 2016 presidential election. Aside from the wide job loss, the network also suffered from billions of losses, and some experts are worried that this might affect the economy and would also mean loss of connection to people in far-flung areas. Up to now, the broad reach of the network has remained unmatched.

And here are some of the remarkable statements that famous stars have said about the closedown of the network:

Zanjoe Marudo: “Sige tumawa kayo, pero t*ng*na nyo, pagbalik namin magpapasalamat kayo!”

Angel Locsin: “Sa mga artistang hindi nagsasalita, may career pa ba kayo? Wala na! Wala na kayong network! Kahit magpa-cute kayo diyan sa Instagram, mag-send kayo ng mga sad face… hindi niyo madadamayan ang mga katrabaho niyo na dahilan kung bakit kayo sumikat!”

Angelica Panganiban: “Tratuhin niyo naman kaming mga tao. Kaming lahat na nawalan ng trabaho. Nawalan ng tahanan. Paano niyo kayang sikmurain na pag tawanan ang kapwa ninyo pilipino na nawalan ng kabuhayan? Pilipino sa kapwa pilipino na ang naglalaban laban. Tama pa ba yon?”

Coco Martin: “Ano po ang uunahin nating gawin? Tanggalin ang kumpanyang tumutulong sa ating kapwa? Sa lahat ng mga Pilipino? O iyong sugal na pinapasok sa ating bansa? Buti pa yung POGO, ipinaglalaban niyo! Itong kumpanyang tumutulong sa lahat ng mga tao ngayon, pinasara niyo! Ano yun?!”
