Netizens hit Congress for using Jobert Sucaldito as resource person against ABS-CBN

Sucaldito said it was unfair for the company to let go of his more than 17 years of service without proper process.

The House of Representatives has been at the receiving end of criticisms from netizens after they invited former showbiz radio anchor Jobert Sucaldito to speak about ABS-CBN’s labor issues.

On Monday, June 29, Jobert was one of the resource speakers who shared their experience and take on ABS-CBN’s labor cases.

During the hearing, Jobert narrated how DZMM according to him illegally dismissed him from his post.

Sucaldito said it was unfair for the company to let go of his more than 17 years of service without proper process.

However, netizens called out the Congress for letting Sucaldito appear at the hearing because he wasn’t dismissed for anything but for violating the network’s ethical standards.

Earlier this year, DZMM suspended Sucaldito after his controversial remark against Kapamilya actress Nadine Lustre.

In his program in DZMM, Sucaldito slammed Nadine after the actress blasted entertainment columnist Ricky Lo.

In his statement, Sucaldito said it might be good if Nadine really jumped off the building if that’s what she really wanted.

“Unang una, gusto namin ipaalala sa inyong lahat mga fans ng JaDine, hindi kami ang may pakulo nitong lahat ng ito. Wala kaming alam sa buhay ng mga idols niyo. Sila ang naggawa-gawa ng mga kuwento na mali namin ay pinatulan namin kaya medyo lumaki at napag-uusapan,” he said.

“‘Di ba ‘yun naman ang gusto nila? Kuno kuno may mga labas ang pwet, naka t-back pa doon sa building tapos may nakalagay na mga caption na parang gustong tumalon. Sana tumalon na lang, kung ganun lang din naman pala,” he added.

His statement sparked outrage from netizens and fans of Nadine which caught the attention of DZMM management.

And after getting both sides of the story, DZMM decided to suspend Jobert’s contract pending further investigation.

Jobert, however, did not accept the ruling and instead went to Atty. Ferdinand Topacio, a known ABS-CBN critic and DDS supporter and filed case at the DOLE.

Meanwhile, here are other reactions from the netizens with regards to Jobert’s appearance in Congress.
