Coco Martin fired back against the recent statement of Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque on the Philippine offshore gaming operations (POGOs) and ABS-CBN.

According to Roque, the reopening of the Chinese gambling operations should not be compared to the shutdown of the Kapamilya network.

The actor responded that the comparison is valid since the reopening of POGOs provides jobs and sources of income for the Chinese while the closure of ABS-CBN took away the jobs and sources of income for many Filipinos.

Martin also asked why there is a hurry to reopen the POGOs when it is currently illegal to gamble due to the COVID-19 quarantine.

“Sabi po ni Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque naniniwala daw po siya na nananaig pa rin ang demokrasya sa ating bansa at malayo daw na ikumpara ang POGO sa pagpapasarado ng ABS-CBN.

“Paano po hindi maikukumpara ang POGO sa pagpapasara ng ABS-CBN?

“Ang pagpapapasok niyo ng POGO dito sa ating bansa ay ang pagbibigay ng trabaho sa madaming dayuhang Chinese. Ang pagpapasarado po ng ABS-CBN ay pagtatanggal ng trabaho sa maraming manggagawang Pilipino.
“Tama naman ho kayo, magkaiba nga.. kasi ang dayuhang Chinese nabibigyan ng trabaho, samantalang kami pong kapwa niyo Pilipino tinanggalan niyo ng hanapbuhay. Matanong ko lang po bakit minamadali natin ibalik ang Pogo samantalang ang pagsusugal ngayon sa kalye ay pinagbabawal?” Martin posted on Instagram.
