Angel Locsin has been vocal about defending ABS-CBN ever since its franchise renewal has been delayed by the Congress.
Last Tuesday, the National Telecommunications Commission issued a cease and desist order against ABS-CBN, right after its officials were warned by Solicitor General Jose Calida of possible graft charges. In the three days that the network has been off the air, bashers and paid trolls have been at work rejoicing in the closure and attacking Kapamilya celebrities.
In response, Angel warned bashers to stop harassing Kapamilya celebrities as they are creating their worst nightmare.
She also reminded trolls that they have no control over celebrities’ lives, especially now that they no longer have to consider their careers so they can fight back.
Angel warned the bashers: “Sa mga (fake) accounts na hinaharass kami para manahimik, pasensya na po kayo at hindi kami magpapa-bully. You’ve created your worst nightmare. Wala kayong power sa amin. Kapamilya, maraming Salamat sa pagdamay sa amin sa panahong ito. Hindi ko ho malilimutan ang pinakita nyong suporta at pagmamahal.”
Angel was one of the Kapamilya celebrities who immediately reacted to the closure of ABS-CBN last Tuesday and cried for the 11,000 employees who have lost their jobs.
“Para sa kapwa. Sa panahon na kailangan ng hanap buhay ng mga tao. Let’s be considerate and ask ourselves kung makakatulong ba ang mga desisyon natin lalo na sa panahong ito. To ABS-CBN, isang karangalan po na naging bahagi at nakasama ko po kayo. Mahal ko kayo. Para sa #MalayangPamamahayag #NoToABSCBNShutdown.”
