Pinoy Big Brother: 737 third runner-up Bailey May talked about the workers being layoff due to the shutdown of ABS-CBN.
In a statement, the British-Filipino actor pointed out the difference between people losing jobs because of the pandemic, and employees losing their occupation because of the government’s action.
“Magkaiba yung natanggal sa trabaho dahil sa pandemya kaysa sa natanggal sa trabaho dahil sa unfair na gobyerno,” said May.
He has a reminder to his fans.
“WAG BINGI, ‘WAG BULAG, AT HIGIT SA LAHAT, ‘WAG B*B*!” he said.
Netizens reacted to May’s post, telling him that he should not blame the government for what’s happening to the Kapamilya network.
“Sisihin mo ang boss ng abs cbn Bakit nag lay off! Tapos sisihin mo sarili mo pag nag tagal kang walang trabaho! isip isip din,” mirrormirrage said.
“No one is above the law, if your network is compliant in the first place, this will never happened.. Blame your network!” dunixielek remarked.
“Wow ang galing pala mag salita tong si Bailey May! O baka tinuruan lng? Ang daming tutor yata sa abs cbn. Baka tulad din siya ni Kim Chiu na hindi alam ang sinasabi,” joemariedorcelo commented.
ABS-CBN announced that they’re going to start to layoff their workers starting August 31.
The House of Representatives on July 10, rejected the franchise application of ABS-CBN, citing several violations committed by the broadcasting network.
However, ABS-CBN and its supporters denied that they did something wrong.
Some lawyers and politicians hint that they may force the government to give the franchise to ABS-CBN via people’s initiative.
