Kara David, Janine Gutierrez, Maine Mendoza, other Kapuso celebrities show solidarity; react to controversial ABS-CBN shutdown

Just hours after the National Telecommunications Commission ordered the giant broadcast network to stop operations due to the expiry of its legislative franchise, the network signed off at exactly 7:52 p.m.

Several Kapuso celebrities reacted to the controversial closure of local media giant ABS-CBN.

Setting aside their rivalry, Kapuso celebrities showed their solidarity and opinion on the abrupt closure of the media network, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Janine Gutierez, who is very open about her criticism about the government, tweeted a photo of a statement about halting the freedom of the press.

Kapuso News Anchor and I-Witness host, Kara David tweeted the official statement of the  University of the Philippines on the NTC’s Cease and Desist order to ABS CBN.

Mikoy Morales and Gabbi Garcia had their own reactions to the controversial issue,

Bea Binene, Inah de Belen and Maine Mendoza posted three heart emojis in the colors of the logo of ABS-CBN.

TV Reporter and Journalist Raffy Tima tweeted a photo of the ABS-CBN compound with a red sky, where he captioned it with, “A bloody sunset.”

A netizen believed that a red sunset symbolizes war, “I’m not superstitious, but I remember my lola told about red sunset is a sign of war.. But as I said I am not superstitious… It’s just an old story.”

Other Kapuso celebrities shared their disbelief over the ABS-CBN shutdown.

This wasn’t the first administration who forced ABS-CBN to go off the air, In September 1972, then-President Ferdinand Marcos placed the country under martial law and ABS-CBN was forced to sign off.

Just hours after the National Telecommunications Commission ordered the giant broadcast network to stop operations due to the expiry of its legislative franchise, the network signed off at exactly 7:52 p.m.



This unfortunate and abrupt shutdown covers five AM stations, including DZMM, 18 FM stations, and 42 TV stations, including Channels 2 and 23 that brings information where it is needed even more than before.
