Celebrities and netizens slam Eric Yap’s bribe claim against ABS-CBN

Alunan also added that if Yap will not name the alleged emissary his story will be taken as mere black propaganda.

Several personalities, ABS-CBN employees, and netizens have blasted ACT-CIS Partylist Rep. Eric Yap over his outrageous claim that an emissary of ABS-CBN offered him 200M to vote yes for the ABS-CBN franchise.

In a statement, Thursday, Yap claimed, “Simple lang ang sagot ko, hindi for sale ang prinsipyo at boto ko”

Yap also added why he did immediately disclose the information saying it would be unfair for ABS-CBN because he was not sure the call was really from the network.

Meanwhile, former DILG Sec. Raffy Alunan challenged Yap to divulge the personality who called him because as a lawmaker he is expected to be lawful.

Alunan also added that if Yap will not name the alleged emissary his story will be taken as mere black propaganda.

Former Congressman Terry Ridon doubted Yap’s claim, saying why would ABS-CBN spend billions in alleged bribes when the company is already bleeding financially due to the shutdown.

Here are other sentiments from netizens and ABS-CBN workers with regards to Yap’s claim.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN immediately refuted Yap’s claim saying they never sent any emissary because they believe in the process which is why they participate in it.

“ABS-CBN did not send an emissary to bribe any lawmaker to vote in favor of our franchise application. We believe in the process and we have participated in the process. We answered all issues raised in the past 12 hearings,”
