ABS-CBN released an official statement to thank all artists who expressed their concern and support to the TV network after it was forced to shut down its broadcast operations in the absence of a valid franchise.
ABS-CBN’s Statement of Gratitude to Artists:
“ABS-CBN is grateful to all the artists who used their platform to express their love and concern for the network amid the challenges it is currently facing.
“You wholeheartedly and courageously spoke up about your concerns, even if you are aware that not everyone would agree with you. We feel your love not only for our company and our colleagues, but for all the people we serve.
“We respect the different opinions of others, including those that may disagree with ours or our artists’. But there is no need to say hurtful words, throw insults, and spread disinformation. We hope that respect and understanding will prevail especially at this critical time.
“Again, to our Kapamilya artists, maraming salamat. We will overcome these challenges as one family. Kapamilya Forever.”
