- Robin Padilla opened up about Coco’s issues in the set of his teleserye.
Robin Padilla remains critical about ABS-CBN and its issues. This time, Padilla targetted FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano director and lead actor Coco Martin.
In response to a commenter who said he should just emulate Coco Martin who has helped many actors by giving them acting jobs, Padilla opened up about Coco’s issue.
“Napakarami ko pong pelikula na nagawa ko na nagkataon lang na wala akong ganang mag pelikula dahil sa nangyayari sa likod ng camera matagal na pong practice yan natutunan lang po yan ni direk Coco sa mga naunang action stars siguro po mainam sabihin niyo po kay direk Coco na ‘wag bubuhusan ng tubig ‘yung mga crew na nakakatulog sa pagod at pagpatol sa location manager na babae. Si John Lloyd (Cruz) po ay isa sa mga artista ng abscbn na katulad ko ayaw na gumawa,” he said.
Padilla even continued by saying he’s just saying the truth.
“Ang pagsasabi ng totoo ay hindi sama ng loob ang katotohanan ay masakit pero ito ay nagsisilbing panggising sa mga tulog. Peace be with you.” Padilla replied.
In 2018, Coco figured in a controversy about him allegedly splashing water on some talents of his teleserye.
According to the source, Coco used to prank some talents on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano by pouring water on them while they were asleep.
While the issue didn’t blow up, insiders said Susan Roces reprimanded Coco saying he shouldn’t have done that even as a prank. The source even added that Roces even went on by saying, the late FPJ didn’t do such thing during his time.
He mentioned ABS-CBN’s digital platforms like TV Plus, iWant, KBO, and YouTube which according to him are earning money for the network but are not being shared with the talents.
“Mam bilang si direk coco po ang tumatayong tagapagtanggol ng mga artista ito po ba ay puwedeng mailapit niyo sa kanya galing sa aming mga artista. Halimbawa ‘pag gumawa tayo ng tv program or movie sa abscbn tapos ipapalabas nila sa tfc. Kikita sila ‘don ng malaki pero ‘di man lang tayo bibigyan kahit konti. Meron pa ngayon silang tv plus, i wanttv, kbo at kung ano ano pa. ‘Yung eksena natin sa tv ilalagay sa youtube channel nila kumikita po sila uli pero ni singko wala po tayo kapamilya pero patayan ang bilang ng oras ng pagte-taping na literal pati mga crew at director namamatay talaga,” he said.
Just recently, Padilla earned the ire of netizens for slamming fellow celebrities openly supporting ABS-CBN. He challenged them to bare their contracts to the public so that people will know how disadvantaged those working off cam are.
However, after the backlash, Padilla apologized saying he just got emotional and he should have said it in a more spiritual way.
“As a gift to my wife this Valentines Day, I apologize to all her family and friends in ABS-CBN, ganon din sa GMA at TV5, patawarin niyo ako the ex-convict in me overtook my emotions, inaamin ko ang aking pagiging mapusok. I could have said my piece in a spiritual way. Let’s give the profit of our labor to our employers but our voices to the laborers,” said Robin.
