Actress Liza Soberano is one of the celebrities who reacted to Aljur Abrenica’s belief on the issue of the ABS-CBN franchise.
A few days ago, Abrenica revealed his stand on the ABS-CBN franchise that made the netizens suspected that he’s neutral on what’s happening to his current network.
“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,” Abrenica said.
He also pointed out that what’s happening to ABS-CBN is a good opportunity for the Kapamilya Network to improve and get better.
Abrenica also clarified that he’s still pro-franchise.
However, some ABS-CBN supporters and employees expressed disappointment to Abrenica, including James Banaag.
“Nakakalungkot lang na may mga artista pala kaming hindi talaga naiintindihan ang buong pangyayari,” said Banaag.

Some netizens suspected that Abrenica’s connection with the Padilla family might affect his stand on ABS-CBN.
Abrenica’s father-in-law is Robin Padilla who’s known for being critical to ABS-CBN.
Padilla even challenged the celebrities to show their talent fees and help the normal employees of ABS-CBN to prove that they’re really defending the jobs of Kapamilya workers.
“Para sa mga superstar ng abscbn at gma hinahamon ko kayo humarap ng live at ipagtanggol nyo ang mga network niyo ilabas natin ang mga contract natin at ikumpara natin sa mga kasama natin sa trabaho sa taping ipakita natin sa taongbayan ang tinatamasa natin sa mga network natin at ang tinatamasa ng sinasabi ninyong ipinaglalaban niyo na wag mawalan ng trabaho,” Padilla said.
“Gusto niyo pala itama ang mali abay umpisahan natin sa una pag usapan muna natin ang tamang sueldo benepisyo at tamang oras ng trabaho ng mga kasama natin sa taping at shooting bago niyo ipaglaban ang karapatan ng kumpanya unahin niyo yun tao ng kumpanya na kasama niyo sa bawat araw sa location at wag niyo proteksyonan lang ang regular employees paano yun mga hindi regular?” he added.
