Coco Martin has been the object of so many bashers lately due to the viral video where he expressed his anger and frustration over the shutdown of ABS-CBN.
The actor can be recalled saying that ABS-CBN has been helping a lot of people and it pains him that it was closed, and along with it were 11,000 people who lost their jobs.
Despite the bashing, the actor did not retract his statement and stood pat on his criticisms about the move.
A number of celebrities backed Coco and took to social media to give him their support.
John Prats said that Coco was one of the most selfless persons that he knew.
"Ang pagkakakilala ko sa kanya sobrang mapagmahal, protective. Hindi lang po sa pamilya niya kundi pati sa aming mga kaibigan niya at sa mga kasamahan niya sa FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. Never niyang inisip ang sarili niya. Lagi niyang iniisip kung ano ang kapakanan ng lahat kaya ‘yun ang hinangaan ko sa kanya at ‘yun ang nagpatibay ng aming pagkakaibigan."
Veteran actor Jaime Fabregas also gave support to Coco. He said that he believes every Filipino has a right to express how he feels. He said that many are playing blind and deaf but he is speaking up as he also fights for the same thing that Coco is fighting for, and that is, democracy and the freedom of the country.
Angel Aquino gave intense words in support of the actor. She gave a deep and emotional message.
"Isang malaking pang-aapi ang ginawa nilang pagpapasara ng ABS-CBN… Hindi kami titigil dahil ang laban ito ay hindi lang para sa amin o sa aming pamilya o sa aming mga kasama. Ang laban na ito ay para rin sa mga Pilipinong naghahangad ng tamang pamamahala at tunay na pamumuno. Karapatan natin ito. Ipaglalaban natin ng tama. Kasama mo ako, Coco. Sinusuportahan kita. Gawin natin ‘to para sa bayan."
In a previous KAMI report, the hashtag #NoToABSCBNShutDown trended worldwide on Twitter following the cease and desist order and shutdown of the Kapamilya network.
