One of the biggest stars of ABS-CBN reacted to the closure of his home network due to the order of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC).
‘Ang Probinsiyano’ leading star Coco Martin couldn’t hide his anger towards the people behind the closure of the Kapamilya network and posted a lengthy message against them on his social media account.
According to his Instagram post, Martin said that he should already speak against the people who wanted to close down ABS-CBN, saying that he’s not even sure if he’s going to survive the pandemic.
He’s hoping that the people behind the closure of ABS-CBN are now happy and celebrating.
Martin then called them out for having lack of conscience for still pushing to shut down ABS-CBN that could resulted to the lost of 11,000 jobs.
“Tutal wala naman kasiguraduhan kung buhay pa ako pagkatapos ng pandemic na ito. Tama lang na masabi ko ang mga saloobin ko. Sa mga taong pilit nagsulong sa pagpapasara sa ABS-CBN, sana ay panatag na panatag na ang kalooban niyo. Sana nagdala ito ng lubos na kaligayahan sa mga puso ninyo. Mahirap magsawalang-kibo sa mga taong katulad ninyo na patuloy na nang-aabuso,” Martin said.
“Wala kayong mga konsensiya, naatim niyong pagkaitan ng hanapbuhay at pabayaang magutom ang ilang libong mga pamilya! Lalo lang lulubog sa kahirapan ang mga Pilipino! Ito ba ang serbisyo niyo sa bayan?” he added.
Martin said that he’s already done of being diplomatic and now he’s going to speak the language that the ABS-CBN critic would understand.
He believed that the actions against ABS-CBN is unfair and should be corrected.
“Hindi ako mangingiming sabihin ang totoong nararandaman ko ngayon. Sa mga taong tulad niyo na hindi karapat-dapat pakitaan ng diplomasya at pagkamalumanay. Ang dapat sa inyo usapang sanggano at walang-hiyaan! Galing ako sa hirap at jologs ang pagkatao ko, kaya wala akong pakialam ngayon kung anong sasabihin ng ibang tao.” he said.
“Hindi man ako kasing talino ng iba, alam ko at malinaw sa akin na MALI at KAWALANG KATARUNGAN ang tanggalan ng hanapbuhay ang ilang libong empleyado ng isang kumpanyang naglilingkod sa sambayanang Pilipino ng ilang dekada!” he added.
Before he ended his post, Martin mentioned Solicitor General Jose Calida and the members of the NTC thanking them for fooling the Filipino people.
“Maraming maraming salamat Solicitor General Joe Calida at sa bumubuo ng National Telecommunications Commission sa kontribusyon niyo sa ating bayan! TINATARANTADO NINYO ANG MGA PILIPINO!!!” he said.
Several members of the House of the Representatives slammed Calida for trying to pressure NTC not to let ABS-CBN continue its operations.
The franchise issue of ABS-CBN started when President Rodrigo Duterte to criticize the said television network and even vowed not to let them renew their franchise.
Two months ago, President Duterte accepted the apology from ABS-CBN management, however, he said that the future of the network is still up for the Congress to decide.
“I tell you, I am not going to interfere, wala talaga,” Duterte said.
