ABS-CBN’s shutdown has been the talk of the town for already weeks and still, Kapamilya stars are trying their best to bring it back.
While the public felt down and sorry for what happened on the giant network, the Kapamilya stars and employees are the most affected on the closure.
Some of the biggest Kapamilya stars started to move and do their part to show their support to the home network.
One of them is the real-life Darna Angel Locsin. Who used her voice on the street to show her biggest support on ABS.
Recently, Angel calls out the other Kapamilya stars to join them on their rally. Some agreed to Angel while there are artists who don’t.
In her previous post, some netizens linked her statement to the Popstar Royalty Sarah G. They say, the posters defend Sarah for keeping her silence regarding this issue.
Meanwhile, Sarah’s husband Matteo Guidicelli spoke up on behalf of her wife Sarah.
On his cryptic post, he said,
“MANAHIMIK ka na lang kung wala kang sasabihing maganda.”
Although it doesn’t say to whom his statement pertaining to, some netizens connected it to what Angel Locsin’s said earlier.
Matteo believes that it is okay to keep quiet if he knows that what he is saying is not good nor could help.
In his Instagram Stories, Sarah Geronimo’s husband posted a quote card that is believed to be the answer to Angel’s taunt to all Kapamilya stars who remain silent in the eventual closure of ABS-CBN.
“Speak only when you feel that your words are better than your silence.”
Prior to this, Matteo also posted on IG a photo of a candle with the caption,
“We lit a candle last night. Took a moment and prayed for each and every employee some of which are close to my heart from the years we spent together.
“Hold on tight, we will rise again.”
If you recall, during the rally and noise barrage held by Kapamilya employees recently, Angel slammed fellow Kapamilya stars who did not want to stand up for the network.
“At sa mga kapwa kong artista na hindi nagsasalita, tatahimik pa ba kayo? Wala na kayong network!”
She further explained her strong emotions,
“Kahit magpa-cute kayo sa Instagram, kahit mag-send kayo ng sad face. Hindi ninyo nadadamayan ang mga katrabaho ninyo na dahilan kung bakit kayo sumikat!
“Huwag kayong matakot! Wala na kayong proprotektahan na career or image! Nandito na tayo sa panahon na kailangan ninyo magsalita!”
A day later, Sarah Geronimo issued an official statement regarding the decision of Congress not to renew the station franchise.
“Mahal ko po ang aking ABS-CBN family. Mahalaga po sa akin ang bawat empleyado na labis na nagdadalamhati ngayon dahil sa kawalan ng trabaho.
“Nakikiisa po ako sa kanilang apila na muling makabalik sa trabaho upang patuloy na makapagbigay serbisyo para sa kani kanilang mga pamilya at para sa bansa.”
