During the last episode of Take it per Minute, host and columnist Lolit Solis reacted to Mocha Uson’s tirades against her.
The columnist said, “Don’t use me Mocha,” pertaining to the Deputy Executive Director of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration’s Twitter post calling out Solis.
It all happened when Solis reacted to Robin Padilla’s post regarding the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN and the allegations surrounding the network.
On Facebook, the Mistah star posted several statements wherein he strongly believe that ABS-CBN had violated laws.
He even called out the celebrities who supported the renewal of the franchise and challenged them to publicize their contracts and even bank books to show the world how unfair the network is to its employees who are working behind the camera. He even called out Coco Martin for alleged misbehavior on the set of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
However, Solis lambasted the actor for allegedly confusing people as to what he really is fighting for, and for being irrelevant.
The columnist and talent manager also pointed out that Padilla is “punching blindly” for dragging others into the issue and sticking his nose into other people’s issues.
On Twitter, the former Communications Assistant Secretary now Deputy Executive Director of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration called out Solis and told her that she’ll never understand Padilla’s point for all she thinks about is the career of her talents under ABS-CBN Network.
Madam Lolit hindi niyo talaga maiintindihan dahil iniisip niyo lang ang proyekto ng mga alaga niyo po. Simple lang ang pinaglalaban ni Robin at yan ay ang mga inabusong mga empleyado ng ABSCBN. pic.twitter.com/rI0wzsOI5i

Some netizens agreed with Uson, while some were irked as they believe that the issue is irrelevant to her duties with OWWA.
On Instagram, Solis clarified that she has no bad feelings for Padilla and she admires him for his concern for people. However, the columnist believes that Coco Martin’s issues are not his issues and if his statements were true, let the victims speak for themselves.
“Ito na ang huli kong posting sa renewal serye Salve. Gagaya na ako kay Ethel Espiritu na isang buga lang ang apoy, tapos tigil na. Gusto ko lang i-clear na hindi ako galit kay Robin Padilla.
“Iginagalang ko at hinahangaan iyon concern niya sa maliliit na tao sa industriya. Masarap isipin iyon malasakit niya sa staff, crew at employees ng ABS-CBN or maging sa mga ibang showbiz workers. Iyon lang punto ko, puwede mo sila tulungan, i voice out ang maling trato sa kanila kung meron man, ng hindi mo kailangan idamay ang iba.
“Bakit kailangan mong banggitin ang mga pangalan nila Coco Martin at Dingdong Dantes. Kung nagkaruon sila ng issue, hayaan mong iyong ‘biktima’ nila ang magsalita, bilang lalaki, hindi ka dapat ‘magturo’ ng iba. Tapos, ang issue, renewal, bakit bigla nagkaruon ng issue sa labor, sa talent fees?”
She also called out Uson who accused her of prioritizing her talents’ projects than doing what is supposed to be right.
“Iyon ang punto ko Mocha, hindi iyon natatakot ako na mawalan ng trabaho mga alaga ko. Kaya nyong ipagtanggol iyon anuman desisyon tungkol sa renewal, susunod tayo at sila sa batas, tatanggapin natin kung ano sasabihin ng korte, iyon ang hintayin natin.”
Her statement ended with, “Lahat tayo mahal ang Pilipinas, ipagdasal natin na sana lahat maging tama, para umunlad tayo. Huwag iyon makaepal lang, sali ng sali sa issue. Last na talaga ito, promise.”
