- Jimmy Bondoc posted a controversial statement against the Kapamilya network
- He bravely called the said company a “snake pit”
- Because of this, several celebrities aired their reactions on social media
Several prominent personalities in the country have broken their silence regarding the controversial statement of Jimmy Bondoc versus ABS-CBN.
KAMI learned that the said singer stated in his recent post that he is excited for the shutdown of what he called as “the biggest TV network” in the Philippines.
He claimed that the company has ruined both arts and culture and that it runs programs that have “pre-determined” winners already.
The musician also called the Kapamilya network as a snake pit that has a lot of sexual harassment and bullying issues.
“I am eagerly awaiting your demise. I know how this sounds. And I know the nasty comments which are bound to come. I don't care,” Jimmy exclaimed.
“If you think COMELEC is bad, wait until you see the real machinery that is known as "the biggest network." This is not schadenfreude. This is hope! This is for real change,” he added.
Because of this, some showbiz personalities denounced what the singer said and they pointed out that closing their network will result to loss of thousands of jobs.
Angel Locsin earlier had a Twitter war with Jimmy while Angeline Quinto also decided to defend the network that she is currently in.
"Nalulungkot ako kasi ABS-CBN ang naging pangalawang tahanan ko, Oo hindi pa ako kasing tagal ng ibang nagtatrabaho sa estasyon na ito, pero para ganun ang maging hiling mo para sa ABS-CBN hindi ko kaya Kuya,” Angeline wrote.
"Puro english ang post mo, isang bagay lang ang itatanong ko, nasaan ang salitang utang na loob sa pagkatao mo,” she added.
Meanwhile, Sunshine Cruz also posted a message about how the Kapamilya network helped her in rebuilding her career few years ago.
The multi-awarded actress emphasized that she is not excited to see lots of employees losing jobs because of the shutdown that Jimmy wished.
"Year 2013. Nung panahong lugmok ako, walang pera, walang matirahan, ABS-CBN ang nagbigay ng tsansa na makabalik ang isang katulad kong bagsak na bagsak ang moral,” she quipped.
“Hindi ako kailanman magagalak na mawalan ng trabaho o pangkabuhayan ang nakararaming tao na nagtatrabaho ng maayos para matulungan ang kanilang pamilya dahil kailanman ay hindi ito tama,” she concluded.
In a previous article by KAMI, the reaction of Angel to the controversial post of Jimmy was reported here.
