Angeline Quinto curses online following the rejection ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal by Congress

The singer slammed a netizen who criticized her for cursing in social media.

Angeline Quinto took to social media to express her frustration over Congress’ denial of ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal.

On June 10, 2020, after 13 hearings, the House Legislative Franchises Committee announced that it rejected ABS-CBN’s bid for a new franchise, effectively shutting down the country’s largest media network.

In a vote of 70 against 11, ABS-CBN failed to win the votes of the legislative franchise committee members.

The network had been forced to close in May following the expiration of its franchise. It also recently received two separate cease and desist orders on June 30, stopping the operation of some of its broadcast platforms.

She wrote on Twitter, “Hindi aq perpektong tao. Nasasaktan po aq. Hihingi napo aq ng tawad sainyo. PUTANG INA! ginawa niyo sa aming lahat.”

Quinto also hopes the government would come up with a solution to help the thousands of ABS-CBN employees who will lose their jobs amid pandemic.

She said,”Okey na ho. Naipasara na ang Abs-Cbn. Dun na po tayo sa totoong problema ng bansa. Ung mga nawalan ho ng trabaho, ung bawat pamilya ho na hindi alam paano bukas. At lalo ho sa Covid paano na ho natin ito susulosyunan.”

In her recent post, the singer slammed a netizen who criticized her for cursing in social media.

“Makamura siya kala mo hindi sila nang api. Pwe!” the netizen commented.

Retweeting the netizen’s post, Quinto responded, “Hoy sira ulo! Lakas mo ah!”

Quinto is a mainstay of ASAP Natin ‘To, ABS-CBN’s longest-running musical variety show in the country.

She was a finalist in Star For A Night in 2002 where she competed with grand winner Sarah Geronimo in the singing competition.

In 2011, Quinto emerged as the winner of Star Power: Sharon’s Search For the Next Female Superstar bringing her to fame.
