“July10, 2020 nasa taping kami (lovethywoman) napanood namin ang huling hearing para sa ABSCBN sa TV na ito. lahat kami tulala, di makapaniwala, nagulat, di alam kung anong mararamdaman. Karamihan sa amin mga lalake, iba na pag mga padre de pamilya ang umiyak. It pains me seeing their eyes well up in tears, nasa kanya kanyang sulok sila iniisip kung bakit naging ganun ang desisyon ng hearing. Paano na ang kinabukasan ng kanilang mga pamilya. Paano na sila?
July18 karamihan sa mga kakilala ko sa abscbn natanggal na sa trabaho. Read all their post on FB, twitter and instagram, some messaged me saying their goodbye. If only we can do something to take away the pain that most of us are going through right now. Why are we experiencing this?! Why are they doing this to us?! If only those 70 congressmen and women have the heart to do what is right. If only we have a leader and not a ruler.
It pains me that we are experiencing all these at the same time in the middle of a pandemic. Wala kang magawa. Ang daming nangyayari. Paano na ang mga breadwinner, single mom, padre de pamilya and many more. Madaling sabihin na maghanap ng ibang trabaho, pero hindi nyo kami naiintindihan, bakit po ngayon?! Ang hirap na ng situation, mas humirap pa. Nakaka lungkot, nakaka galit, nakaka iyak, nakaka takot. Bakit naging ganito ang bansa natin?. mahigpit na yakap mga kapamilya ko! Mahal ko kayo! hindi tayo susuko!"
Kim Chiu is one of the most acclaimed and prominent female showbiz personalities in the Philippines. She is currently in a relationship with Xian Lim.

Kim also made rounds on social media anew after she posted and used a different hashtag on her social media account. In her since-deleted Twitter post, the actress wrote, "#NOToABSCBNFranchiseRenewal" instead of "#NOToABSCBNFranchiseDenial". DJ Chacha is one of the netizens who reacted to her erroneous tweet.
