GMA Network’s Suzette Doctolero’s rant over Andoy Ranay’s ‘world-class’ statement drew the attention of Annette Gozon-Valdes, a Kapuso network executive.
Gozon-Valdes commented, “You can see the character of a person with the words that come out of his mouth. Let’s just pray for him hehe.”
This was after Doctolero, on a facebook post on July 13, commented on Ranay’s claim that ABS-CBN’s shows are of world-class quality content.
According to Doctolero, Ranay cannot claim as such since a project he had did with ABS-CBN was shelved because of its poor rating.
“Natatandaan ko… After the success of ‘My Husband’s Lover’ (ahem)… Gumawa rin siya ng LGBT themed soap. I don’t even remember the title kasi sandali lang nag air e. Hindi kasi nag-rate. Puro seks pa, akala ko nga ay pornoserye,” Doctolero commented in a sarcastic tone.
The Kapuso writer even called Ranay and his team “weak” for not sticking to the show’s story and yet dares to say that ABS-CBN shows can be considered world-class.
“Tapos, hindi nila yata napanindigan ang tema (ng LGBT ha, hindi ng porno). Natakot yata? Kaya siguro ay iniliko uli ang kwento, ginawang hetero love uli. Haha. Tsk. Ang weak. Sa salitang kanto: supot! Sino ang basura? ‘Yan na ba ang world class? Trabahong duwag?”
To add to her point, Doctolero stressed that only GMA Network dares provide an array of concepts, to which they stick to until the end.
“Klaro ito. GMA-7 lang po ang gumagawa ng matatapang na kwento at ito ay aming pinaninindigan hanggang sa dulo, mag-rate man o hindi. Why? Kasi may respeto kami sa audience at sa LGBT community (pati sa mga indigenous community, sa mga PWD, sa lahat na ginagawan namin sa GMA ng kwento),” she added.
