‘Ang Probinsiyano’ leading star Coco Martin couldn’t hide his frustration and concern over his future after his home network, ABS-CBN was forced to shut down by the government due to their expired franchise.
During the ‘Laban, Kapamilya!’ Facebook Live Event on Friday, Martin expressed his anger towards the actions of the government against ABS-CBN, saying that they already lost his job.
According to him, diplomacy was already useless in the current situation of ABS-CBN because of what the government did to them.
“Binarubal na tayo, tinarantado na tayo, kinuha na ‘yung bahay natin, ano ang i-expect natin diba… na ipagdarasal natin sila? Pinagdasal na natin sila, tiniis na natin sila,” Martin said.
He urged the people working with ABS-CBN to stood up against the people behind the franchise expiration of the Kapamilya network.
“Dapat iparinig niyo kung ano ‘yung nawala sa atin, diba? Yung 11,000 na nasa ABS-CBN iparinig niyo, kasi kung habang buhay tayong mananahimik ay aabusuhin tayo niyan, parang bata tayong kinotongan,” Martin said.
Martin argued that he already lost his job so he doesn’t care about his choices of words anymore.
He also said that he would fight for his family until the end.
“Wala na akong trabaho eh, anong ipapakain ko sa pamilya ko? Kapag ang pamilya ko ay kinanti, kahit sino ka pa, lalaban ako ng p*tayan sayo, kahit na pat*yin mo pa ako!”
Coco Martin is one of the successful talents of ABS-CBN and according to some websites, he already has a net worth of $20-M (1-B) and living in a lavish 2,000 sqm home in Quezon City.
One evidence of Martin’s wealth is when he promised to give a business package to a man who tattoed himself with ABS-CBN shows.
“PAG NAKABALIK KAMI PINAPANGAKO KO SAYO BIBIGYAN KITA NG PANGKABUHAYAN NG PAMILYA MO MAG TAYO KA NG TINDAHAN DYAN SA LUGAR NYO KAMI NAPO ANG TUTULONG SA INYO WALA NA TAYONG IBANG AASAHAN KUNDI TAYO ANG MAG TUTULONGAN!” Martin said on his Instagram post.
