Kapamilya talent manager, writer, and sometimes actor Ogie Diaz gave some advice to a Kapuso writer affected by Direk Andoy Ranay’s “aanhin ang franchise” statement.
Ranay’s “aanhin ang franchise” comment already triggered a number of people in GMA Network.
In his YouTube vlog on July 17 titled, BAKIT ISSUE PA RIN ANG “BASURA”? Diaz tackled the matter as it already has gone a long way.
Diaz did not drop any names, but it was clear that his advice was directed to Suzette Doctolero.
He started by saying that he understands how Doctolero felt after Ranay made a comment.
“Basta kasi siya, intinding-intindi ko naman siya eh, na ipinagtatanggol niya talaga ‘yung kanyang network. Wala namang problema do’n,” he said.
However, Diaz pointed that the director’s comment was not meant for any particular network. It may be possible that Ranay was referring to TV5, not GMA Network.
“Kaya lang, dapat, i-level up mo ang pagtatanggol, ‘di ba? Saka lang tayo umano, rumisponde. Kapag talaga tinukoy na nang direkta, na ang GMA ‘yung sinasabi ni Direk Andoy (na basura), ‘di ba?
“E wala naman. Pwede ngang ituro ni Andoy ‘yung TV5. Paano kung gano’n ang ginawa ni Andoy?” he added.
Although Doctolero was enraged by Ranay’s comment, Diaz was not interested in responding to the harsh comments of the Kapuso writer.
“Hindi naman para awayin natin siya. E ganu’n talaga siya. Alam mo, ‘pag pinuri na niya ang ang kalabang network, doon ako masa-shock.
“Pero kung puro tira-tira-tira, e at least, consistent siya. ‘Yun na lang ang kaya kong ipuri sa kanya. At least, consistent ka kahit minsan, fake news,” commented Diaz.
