Lea Salonga has taken to social media to ask her followers to pray for ABS-CBN employees who will face retrenchment due to the cease of operations of some of the network’s businesses.
In a Twitter post, the award-winning theater actress and singer posted the Kapamilya network’s statement on laying off its employees which Lea supposed as “possibly be the biggest challenge" of the affected families' lives especially during these trying times.
“Please say a prayer for the many men and women of ABS-CBN as well as their families, that they weather what might possibly be the biggest challenge of their lives. Mahigpit na yakap, mga Kapamilya,” she tweeted.
Lea, who is aware that there are ones who rejoice over the fate of giant media, also asked supporters of ABS-CBN shutdown to pray for the displaced workers as well.
“Whether you were in favor of the shutdown or not is immaterial. Pray for them anyway. To be suddenly out of a job is not something to wish upon another human being, especially in the middle of this seemingly never-ending pandemic,” she furthermore wrote.
Five days after the Congress denied ABS-CBN’s franchise bid, the network said that they are forced to lay off employees as it was the "only way to ensure the continued employment" of the rest of its workers.
Lea Salonga is a Filipina actress and an international singer. She is a judge of a reality talent show and has won the prestigious Tony Award.
She earlier took to Facebook to air her frustration towards the Philippines. She wrote a cuss word and said that the country was very hard to love.
Lea later on clarified that she never ever cursed the Philippines, and her "P" word was just an expression of her frustration.
