Robin Padilla has recently stirred buzz in the online community after sharing his thoughts about the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN on social media.
It can be recalled that the actor even challenged the Kapamilya and Kapuso celebrities to come forward and set the record straight about their salaries to show the disparity between their income and the workers' salaries.
However, KAMI learned that Ethel Espiritu, the head of Dreamscape Digital Original Content Line Productions under ABS-CBN, recently addressed Robin's online posts on her social media account.
Ehtel further continued by questioning Robin in her online post, "Ganito na lang, mahabang panahon ka ring nagtrabaho sa ABS-CBN (kasama ang asawa mo, kapatid mo, mga pamangkin mo at ang tinatawag namin nung Kamaganak Corp).
"Sa haba ng panahon na yun if may napansin ka na pa lang mali sa pamamalakad especially sa mga trabahador, bakit hindi mo pinaglaban?"
She also challenged Robin after revealing his high salary per taping day, "Isa pa, kontrata pala hamon mo. Napakalaki ng per taping day sahod mo.
"Kung talagang makabayan at makatao ka, eh di dapat pala shinare mo sa kanila ang blessings mo. Lahat ng issues mo, dapat pala nun mo pa pinaglaban. San ka nun? Sino presidente nun? Ahhh. Okay. Noted."
Ethel ended her message by expressing her dismay and disappointment over Robin's opinion regarding the franchise renewal.
She also mentioned in her post that she and Robin have known each other since 1991 and that she and the network have considered him as a family already.
The said tweets also elicited various reactions and comments from netizens on social media. Here are some of their comments from entertainment site, Fashion Pulis.
"Aww sunog na sunog lol. Nahiya ako bigla for Mariel."
"Reading her posts is so satisfying! Sapul lahat ng hanash ni Robin!"
"Oh my God! lakas ng tawa ko while reading her posts. Sana behave ka na Robin and yes "think before you click" para sa "kamaganak corp" lol."
"Exactly my point too! Tama pinaglalaban ni Robin pero di yun ang issue ngayon. Robin can face that issue in another arena. Lumilihis tayo eh!"
As reported earlier by KAMI, Robin Padilla issued a challenge on social media to all artists working for ABS-CBN and GMA. The action star challenged the stars to show to the public the contents of their contracts from the two giant networks. He explained that the public should see the disparity in the salary and treatment of celebrities compared to those working behind the camera. Robin also slammed the stars who would rather protect their networks instead of trying to advocate for the rights of the networks’ employees.
Robin Padilla tied the knot with Mariel Rodriguez on August 19, 2010. The actress-host gave birth to Isabella on November 14, 2016. She delivered the baby in Delaware, USA. Mariel announced her second pregnancy on Mother’s Day 2019.
