Toni Gonzaga bashed after voicing out her sentiment on the ABS-CBN franchise issue

“Mapapakain ba ng toxic positivity mo ang libo-libong nawalan ng trabaho?” Toni Gonzaga’s critics take her statement as “toxic positivity.”

Kapamilya actress Toni Gonzaga was criticized after she broke her silence on the ABS-CBN franchise denial.

After Congress rejected the application of the Lopez-owned media company, its artists, workers, and supporters started to cry out for an appeal for a second chance.

This was following the retrenchment program that will see the majority of the employees to be laid off, making most of its 11,000 workers jobless amid the pandemic.

Despite Toni’s recent support, some netizens took her optimism as something toxic following her clarification that she is not putting any blame on people in position and their decision should be respected with humility.

She said, “This is a reminder to us that no matter who is in position. Jesus is still the King of Kings. This is to remind our kapamilyas, there is hope. There’s still tomorrow. We will not forget what the people who have power did to us and we respect their decision with all humility,”

She further added that she will continue to stand with the Kapamilya network for it has given her the opportunities that brought her to her current success.

“As one, we will also continue to stand up for our company who gave us so many opportunities to help our families. We don’t know what the future will bring. But we know, God is holding us in the palm of His hands,” she stated.

Netizens negatively took the statement since Toni seemed like she was sugarcoating things.

Others recognized and appreciated Toni for being a great example of a well-mannered artist who displays pure intentions in public. They also believed that being silent in prayer is more powerful and louder than noise. This was following the tirades thrown at her and other artists for not speaking out about the ABS-CBN franchise denial.

Toni in her support for the network further stated that the ABS-CBN crisis will be temporary and everyone will rise again from the major downfall.

“Troubles come to pass, they don’t stay. Jesus said, when you go through deep waters I will be with you. One day He [will] wipe these tears away and replace it with JOY beyond compare. Babangon tayong lahat muli,” she posted.
