Media giant ABS-CBN has recently gone off the air after the National Telecommunications Commission or NTC sent a 'cease and desist' order to the network.
The said order from the NTC was sent on Tuesday, May 5 after the media giant's franchise expired on Monday, May 4.
This order prompted various Kapamilya celebrities have expressed their frustration over the issue, with some even participating in the online rally event called Laban, Kapamilya.
Following this news, KAMI learned that Jobert Sucaldito, an entertainment columnist who previously worked under ABS-CBN's DZMM, released a statement about the company online.
In his online post, Jobert began by stating that he does not agree with the network shutdown.
"Kahit galit ako sa ilang tao sa ABS-CBN, in my heart I am for the #notoshutdown dahil marami pa ring mga good people inside na di naman kasali sa mga isyu namin," he wrote.
However, the entertainment columnist then asked the network to stop using their 11,000 employees as a human shield.
According to Jobert, "But wait, pakiusap lang, stop using the 11,000 employees as human shields dahil hindi totoo iyan. Yung mga iba nabubulagan lang. Nadadala sa matatamis na dila ng ilang bosses diyan."
The radio host then shared the alleged story behind the cameramen working for ABS-CBN who were dismissed illegally, "Nasa news iyan before - nung pinatawag ng mga bosses ang maraming cameramen sa isang five-star hotel and were served the best lunch in the world.
"And after nilang kumain tsaka ibinigay ang walking papers nila. Masakit iyon sobra! Sobrang sakit para sa mga cameramen na dekadang nagserbisyo sa kanila 'tapos bigla na lang nilang tatanggalin nang ganoon-ganoon.
"Parang nasilya-elektrika ang mga iyon - bago patayin ay pinakain muna ng masarap. Pinakain niyo pa ng masarap na pagkain 'tapos bigla niyong sinabihang tanggal na sila. SAAN ANG SINASABI NINYONG PUSO NG KAPAMILYA? SAAN?"
Jobert also wrote a message regarding the artists who are defending the network, "Kung mapansin ninyo, sila-sila ring mga alaga ng mga tagaloob ang napapanood sa mga teleserye - judge sa mga pakontes - regular sa ASAP - ano pa?
"Kung freelancer ka, mapalad kung makapag-guest ka once in a while. Natural na ipagtanggol sila ng mga piling-artistang ito dahil nakikinabang pa sa kanila. Ilan lang iyon."
Aside from this, Jobert shared an issue allegedly happening behind the scenes in ABS-CBN, "Subukan mong kalabanin si Cory Vidanes, Johnny Manahan, Deo Endrinal, Lauren Dyogi, etc., tingnan natin kung makakabalik ka pa diyan.
"Kailangang himurin mo mga puwet nila or sumunod ka sa mga gusto nila dahil kung hindi, patay ka. Huwag niyo ring kalabanin ang mga alaga nila at wasak ang career mo.
"Kahit sa tama ka pa, pag nagsanib-puwersa ang mga iyan, tigok ang career mo sa loob. Subukan ninyong pumalag ngayon at baka ilabas ko ang mga baho ninyo. Don't provoke me!"
It can be worth noting that the radio host was dismissed from DZMM after he made a controversial joke about Nadine Lustre back in January 2020.
