Comedian Aiai Delas Alas sided with fellow Kapuso actress Jaclyn Jose on the disputed ‘basura’ issue.
“Aanhin mo ang franchise kung basura naman ang trabaho.”
These were the controversial words of ABS-CBN director Andoy Ranay during the virtual presscon of his iWant mini-series My Sunset Girl.
Despite ABS-CBN’s unfortunate shutdown, Andoy assured his loyalty to the network because he believes it produces “world-class quality” content.
Although he didn’t mention any names, many assumed that he is pointing at GMA Network on his statement. Jaclyn was among those who voiced out sentiments about the ‘basura’ issue. On Instagram, the actress indirectly swiped at Andoy and stressed that GMA Network is not producing trash.
As a sign of support, AiAi reposted GMA Network’s quote card of Jaclyn’s Instagram post.
“Lahat ng nasa production from EP to AP to PA to all the members of production hanggang utility, wardrobe on point.
“Hanggang sa kuwento, artista, director nagpapawis, nagpapakahirap makagawa lang ng napakaganda na panuurin. Pinaghihirapan po namin ang lahat ng lumalabas.
“Hindi po kami (basura)” Jaclyn stated.
AiAi echoed the words of Jaclyn through her post’s caption which said, “Tama Ms. Best Actress ang daming hirap at puyat hindi lamang artista kundi mga tao sa likod ng camera.”

“Ang pinag hirapan at galing sa pusong gawain ay hindi maihahantulad sa basura,” AiAi added.
Citing a similar situation, Kapuso director L.A. Madridejos reminisced how the late director Wenn V. Deramas reacted when his films were branded as trash.
On his Facebook post, the Kapuso director said: “Naalala ko nung nabubuhay pa si direk Wenn, maraming nagsasabi na ‘basura’ ang mga pelikulang gawa n’ya. Tinanong ko s’ya kung anong reaction n’ya dito.”
He noted that Wenn had remained unfazed by criticisms and just focused on his work.
“Sabi n’ya, ang nagsasabi na basura yung gawa n’ya eh yung mga taong hindi makagawa ng gawa nya. So ang ending, lalaitin nalang nila. Ang importante daw kay direk Wenn, sigurado s’yang marami s’yang viewers na napapasaya… at madalas kumita ng more than 100M ang mga pelikula nya.
“Sabi pa nya, hindi daw n’ya kailangan manlait ng gawa ng iba para patunayan na mahusay sya” L.A. recalled.
