Pia Magalona took to social media to lambast Senator Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa whose statements about ABS-CBN employees and illegal Chinese workers trended online recently.
On her Twitter account, the celebrity posted an art card with the senator’s remark that received backlash from netizens.
"Alangan naman sabihin ko sa kanila na maghimagsik kayo, magwala kayo, hindi naman pwede 'yun. Hanap na lang kayo ng ibang trabaho para mabuhay ang pamilya ninyo,” the art card quoting Dela Rosa’s message to ABS-CBN workers reads.
The art card also included the politician’s lines about illegal Chinese employees which first become trending online in February 2019: “Illegal is illegal,' di ba? Kung illegal, eh di dapat gawing legal.”
Pia then posted, “Kailangan nating magsalita dahil kung tatahimik lang tayo, ang ibig sabihin ay sang-ayon tayo sa mga tulad nito sa gobyerno.”
She also criticized Dela Rosa’s leadership and accused him of being “selfish”.
"Isa palang itong halimbawa ng mga hindi dapat nasa pwesto dahil makasarili. Ganun kasimple,” she added.
ABS-CBN is one of the leading broadcast networks in the Philippines. Its 25-year franchise expired on May 4 and the Committee on Legislative Franchises of the House of Representatives rejected on July 10 its bid to secure another franchise.
Several personalities from its major rival, GMA 7, including prominent Kapuso talents and journalists then expressed sympathy to celebrities and employees from the Kapamilya network.
GMA's late-night news program "Saksi" also showed solidarity with ABS-CBN by displaying the Kapamilya network's transmitter tower and logo in its extro.
