Jennylyn Mercado is ‘fine’ with being bashed to practice her freedom of speech over ABS-CBN’s closure

The Kapuso actress admitted that “No network is perfect” but she believes that the network’s policies can be improved.

Kapuso actress Jennylyn Mercado showed her support for ABS-CBN by sharing her opinion on Congress’s rejection of a franchise renewal.

In Jennylyn’s Twitter post, she defended ABS-CBN employees who might lose their jobs from bashers who rejoiced in the shutdown of the network.

She wrote that “Rejoicing because of other people’s sorrow is not only wrong but inhumane. You are cruel.”

Jennylyn also argued about politicians who violate the law but were unpunished. She also said that “if everyone should be held at the same standard” they should not celebrate.

The Kapuso actress admitted that “No network is perfect” but she believes that the network’s policies can be improved.

Jennylyn couldn’t find the logic in the decision of Congress to disapprove the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN which will add to the unemployment rate of the country.

She also reminded the netizens who told her to “shut up” that she has the right to give her opinion and they should learn to respect it.

A netizen advised her to be neutral over the issue so she won’t be bashed but the Kapuso actress said “If being ‘bashed’ is a small price to pay for practicing my right to freedom of speech. Then I am fine with it.”

The singer, actress and V host Jennylyn Mercado is the grand winner of a GMA Network reality show, StarStruck, in 2003. As a winner, she got an exclusive contract with GMA Network.

She also starred in the various TV series and movies such as Encantadia, I Luv NY, The Bride and the Lover, Let the Love Begin, and So Happy Together.



She also hosted the “Protégé: The Battle for the Big Break” and the GMA-7 Sunday talk show, “Showbiz Central”.
