- Jennylyn Mercado has not failed to show support to ABS-CBN, especially to those who lost their jobs and will be losing their jobs because of the denial of the franchise
- Despite being a Kapuso, the actress has been very vocal about standing for what is right, to the point that she incurred a lot of bashing
- Recently, a basher commented that it's time to move on from the ABS-CBN issue because it's already finished
- This did not sit well with the actress who said that moving on from the issue is simply disregarding the sufferings of many
Jennylyn Mercado can be considered one of the most level-headed celebrities, who saw beyond the barriers of being a Kapamilya and Kapuso.
She has been asking the public to pray for retrenched employees of ABS-CBN.
Because of her stand, she was also subjected to online bashing.
A recent comment stated, "Move on na tayo sa isyu ng ABS. Tapos na."
The 32-year-old actress did not let the comment pass and instead fearlessly stated, "To move on is to disregard the suffering of others..."
In the same post, it can be shown that another online user clearly expressed disfavor towards the act of moving on.
"Move on? Ano to parang magsyota lang? To move on is to forget. Paano mo kakalimutan ang mga empleyado na paycheck to paycheck na ngayon wala nang pagkukunan ng pambili ng pagkain sa pamilya nia? To move on is to accept. How heartless can yuo be to accept that thousands of our kababayans are now struggling to survive? Tuloy pa rin ang laban sa Bayan Pilipino."
When the shut down of ABS-CBN was carried out, Regine Velasquez expressed strong words over it. She said that after everything, they will come back better and brighter.
After this, Kim Chiu became viral because of her "Bawal Lumabas." The singer-actress also expressed sympathy towards the younger actress.
ABS-CBN is one of the most popular media and entertainment outfits in the Philippines. It has produced top-caliber stars, well-loved programs, and timely news. Some of the popular shows are “It’s Showtime” and “TV Patrol.” Jennylyn Mercado is currently earning praise for defending the network despite being a Kapuso.
