Following this news, KAMI learned that various Kapamilya celebrities have recently joined the Laban, Kapamilya online rally event on Facebook.
Watch the video below:
Included in the event is Ang Probinsyano star Coco Martin who expressed his frustrations and anger over the decision of the NTC to shut down the Kapamilya network.
The actor began by informing the people that their participation in the online rally event is out of their own free will.
“Ito po’y walang nag-utos sa amin. Kami pong mga artista, nagtulong-tulong, nagbuklod-buklod kasi gusto naming mailabas kung ano yung nararamdaman namin," he said.

From this point forward, Coco shared his struggles as an artist and how ABS-CBN still accepted him afterwards, “Wala po akong talento. Ang liit ko, ang pangit ko, ang itim ko.
"Bulol ako, hindi ako marunong mag-ingles, wala akong kapasidad o katangian para maging isang artista.
"Pero hindi po yun ang tinignan ng ABS-CBN. Ang tinignan nila, kung ano ang kapasidad mo para magtrabaho at para ipakita ang talento mo.”
Aside from this, the Ang Probinsyano star also called out the government regarding their decision to shut down ABS-CBN amid the pandemic, “Ano ang uunahin natin ngayon?
"Tanggalin ang kompanya na tumutulong sa ating kapwa, sa lahat ng mga Pilipino, o yung sugal na pinapasok sa ating bansa?
"Buti pa yung POGO, pinaglalaban niyo. Itong kompanyang tumutulong sa lahat ng mga tao ngayon, pinasara niyo."
In the video, Coco also asked the 11,000 employees under ABS-CBN to speak up against the issue, “Ako, bahala na bukas. Sasabihin ko na kung anong nararamdaman ko. Binarubal na tayo eh.
"Tinarantado na tayo, kinuha na yung bahay natin. Anong i-eexpect natin? Ipagdarasal natin sila? Pinagdasal na natin sila. Tiniis na natin sila. Dapat kumilos tayo! Dapat magsalita tayo!
"Dapat marinig kung ano ang nawala sa atin. Yung 11,000 na nasa ABS-CBN, iparinig ninyo! Kasi kung lahat tayo mananahimik, aabusuhin tayo.
"Para tayong batang kinotongan at pagkatapos, kapag nagkita kayo, anong i-eexpect mo? Kasi ito na yung pagkakaton natin. Wala na tayong trabaho, anong iniingatan natin?"
He also revealed his worries about having no job during the live video, "Ako honestly, wala na akong trabaho.
"Anong ipapakain ko sa pamilya ko? Kapag ang pamilya ko kinanti, kahit sino ka pa, lalaban ako ng patayan. Kahit patayin mo pa ako.”
