Breaking their silence, netizens can’t help but admire on how the couple grew and used their platforms to encourage youth, to speak out especially in this time of crisis, despite the trauma that they had for the past years,

Celebrity couple Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla finally broke their silence on the ABS-CBN shutdown.

On their own Instagram accounts, the couple spoke up about the issue.

In the video posted, Kathryn began by expressing why she hesitated to be involved in this kind of matter.

“Alam ko po na marami sa inyo na may alam na matagal ko pong piniling manahimik. Bakit? Kagaya po ing iba sa inyo, natakot po ako. Kasi nu’ng huling beses ko po na ginamit ko ‘yung platfrom ko sa usaping politika, hindi naging maganda ‘yung nangyari. Naging traumatic po ‘yung experience ko no’n.”

The traumatic experience she was referring to was when she got bashed in 2016 for supporting Mar Roxas for his presidential candidacy.

“Pero ngayon nandito po ako kasi pakiramdam ko kasi kailangan. Pakiramdam ko, kahit wala mang kasiguraduhan marinig ‘to, at least may ginawa ako. Pakiramdam ko kailangan kong maging boses ng iba. Kaya nandito ko, pinili kong magsalita kasi nag patong-patong na ‘yung mga dahilan.”

According to her, ABS-CBN’s shutdown means that more Filipino families will have to search for more ways to reduce the burden of the COVID-19 crisis.

She even related it to her blockbuster movie, Hello Love Goodbye, where she played an OFW.

“Meron po akong isang linya doon sa movie na nagawa ko no’ng hulin, ang sinabi do’n, ‘Ang choice para lang sa may pera.’ Noong isang buwan po akong namuhay sa Hong Kong, doon ko po napatunayan at doon ko lalong nakita kung gaano kahirap ‘yung buhay.”

“Tapos ‘yun pong pagk-ashutdown ng ABS-CBN, sa ginawa nilang ‘yon, mas binawasan pa nating ‘yung pagpipilian ng mga kababayan natin. Alam po natin na maraming lugar sa Pilipinas ang channel na meron sila ang nasasagap lang nila ay ABS-CBN.”

For Kathryn, keeping the public informed is a very critical need at this time of the pandemic,

“Sa panahon po n ngayon ng pandemya na kailangan natin ng impormasyon maya’t maya, alam po natin kung gaano kaimportanye ang news, ang pagkukunan ng impormasyon.”

Boyfriend Daniel Padilla has similar views where he urges his fellow Filipinos to open their hearts and be compassionate and to open their eyes to the truth.

“Nakakalungkot ho ang nangyayari ngayon, nakakalungkot na dapat nagkakaisa tayo at may hinaharap tayong pandemya, ay nalilihis ang usapan at nagkakawatak-watak pa tayong mga Pilipino dahil sa pagkakaiba ng opinyon,”

Padilla was also saddened for his fellow Kapamilyas who got bashed for just sharing their own thoughts on the closure of their home network.

“Nakakadismaya hong makita na ang iba naming mga kasamahan namin sa industriya na piniling magsalita ay iniinsulto. Wala naman ho silang ibang layunin kung ‘di muling magbukas ang ABS-CBN. Ang gusto lang naman ho nila ay mapawi ang takot na nararamdaman ng mga empleyado na maaaring mawalan ng trabaho.”

Breaking their silence, netizens can’t help but admire on how the couple grew and used their platforms to encourage youth, to speak out especially in this time of crisis, despite the trauma that they had for the past years.
