COMPILED: Kapamilya celebrities show solidarity after ABS-CBN shutdown

Kapamilya stars have taken to social media to air out their thoughts and feelings about ABS-CBN's broadcast shutdown last night, May 5, as the company compiled with the cease and desist order issued by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC).

Actors and actresses flooded Twitter and Instagram with the red, green, and blue colors of the ABS-CBN logo as a show of support, with many opening up about the ways the network changed their lives. Some celebrities also expressed their dismay over the shutdown.

 

Coco Martin bared his anger over the news in a lengthy post, highlighting how the shutdown will affect many Filipinos' livelihoods, as well as their means of being informed and entertained amid the coronavirus pandemic.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Pasensya na po dahil hindi ko na mapigilan ang sobrang galit na nararamdaman ko. Nakakapagod nang manahimik at magpigil kung ang mga nasa paligid mo naman ay mga walang-pusong tao. Anong klaseng mga tao ang gumawa nito? Alam ninyo na ang ibig sabihin ng pagkasara ng ABS-CBN ay kawalan ng trabaho ng ilang libong empleyado kasama ang mga pamilya nito. Ilang libong pamilya ang magugutom sa kabila nang lahat ng nangyayari sa mundo ngayon. Talaga bang nagawa niyong unahin ang pagpapasara ng isang istasyon na bumubuhay sa napakaraming Pilipino? Ang lahat ng mga tao ngayon ay pagtulong at pag-agapay sa kapwa ang hangarin, lalo na ang ABS-CBN. Napakalaki ng iniambag at patuloy na nagaambag upang umabot ang tulong sa lahat ng nangangailangan. Sila ang inaasahan ngayon ng maraming tao para maghatid ng balita sa bawat araw, sila rin ang daan para maiparating ng mga tao ang kanilang saloobin at pinagdadaanan sa krisis na ito. Sa gitna ng laban natin sa COVID 19, hindi tumitigil ang ABS-CBN para magbigay ng aliw, ligaya at pag-asa sa mga tahanan ng sambayanang Pilipino. At sa gitna rin ng lahat ng ito, hindi iniwan o pinabayaan ng ABS-CBN ang mga empleyado nito, inagapay niya ang bawat empleyado upang makaraos. Hindi ko alam kung anong klaseng mga tao kayo at kung anong klaseng konsensiya ang mayroon kayo para maisip niyong ipasara ang ABS-CBN sa gitna ng daan at libong mga taong nagkakasakit at namamatay dahil sa epidemyang ito. Hindi kayo ang mga taong dapat kinakausap ng maayos, ang dapat sa inyo tapatan ng kabastusan at kawalanghiyaan tulad ng inaasal ninyo! Wala man akong gaanong kaalaman sa batas at maaring masmarunong kayo sa akin, pero sana naisip niyo man lang ang sitwasyon ng ating bansa! Sana sa wakas ay makatulog kayo ng mahimbing at maipagmalaki niyo ang naggawa ninyo! Sana ipagkapuri kayo ng pamilya ninyo sa tagumpay ninyong gutumin at yurakan ang mga buhay ng ilang libong pamilya! Tutal wala naman kasiguraduhan kung buhay pa ako pagkatapos ng pandemic na ito. Tama lang na masabi ko ang mga saloobin ko. Sa mga taong pilit nagsulong sa pagpapasara sa ABS-CBN, sana ay panatag ma panatag na ang kalooban niyo. NTC sana nagdala ito ng lubos na kaligayahan!!!

The Unkabogable Phenomenal Star Vice Ganda also shared the same sentiments.

 

Meanwhile, Judy Ann Santos, who has been with the network for 28 years, expressed her shock. Judy Ann has been with ABS-CBN since her “Mara Clara” days in 1992.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Nakakalungkot.. nakakapanghina... nakakatulala.. dalawang bagay ang hindi ko inakalang mangyayari sa buong buhay ko.. ang maranasan ang ECQ at magsara ang naging bahay at buhay ko mula 13 years old ako.. maraming mas dapat pagtuunan ng pansin sa mga panahong to.. maraming nangangailangan ng tulong mula sa gobyerno.. maraming natutulungan ang kumpanyang bumubuhay sa puso ng mga tao sa panahong to sa pamamagitan ng mga programang pwedeng magpalibang at pansamantalang makalimutan ang mga problemang pinagdadaanan nating lahat... bakit po? Bakit ngayon?? Hindi po bang mas importanteng magtulungan tayo at magkaisa kahit pansamantala na muna habang may kinakaharap tayong mas malaking kaaway? Hindi po ba dapat sama sama nating ginagawa ang pwede nating maggawa para makapagsilbi sa mamayang pilipino?? Hindi ko naiintindihan... kung may iilang tao ang nagbubunyi ngayon dahil nakuha at naggawa nilang maipasara ang abs cbn.. mas marami po kayong taong nasaktan at tinanggalan ng trabaho sa panahong lahat ng tao ay nag aalala kung paano bubuhayin ang mga pamilya nila... maari po bang makahingi ng sapat na paliwanag??

Angel Locsin shed tears for more than 11,000 workers whose livelihoods will be impacted by the shutdown, as revealed by her fiance Neil Arce on Instagram.

 

 

 

 

Bea Alonzo expressed how "heartbroken" she was after ABS-CBN signed off.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

It is heartbreaking to hear that our company, received a cease and desist order from NTC in the middle of this worldwide crisis. 11,000 people are now afraid that they may lose their jobs and won’t be able to just apply for another job to feed their families because our industry is very small, there are not so many options for us, and given the circumstances, how can they go out and find a source of income to put food on the table using their skill set? The Filipinos around the world need our service. Fifteen million people tune in to ABS-CBN every day to get updated with the latest news and to be entertained wherever they may be. We bring the Philippines into their homes. We even encourage them to practice Bayanihan in these trying times. The Philippines will never be the same without ABSCBN, Our lives will never be the same without our KAPAMILYA network. We are asking for compassion. People are dying, people are starving and the last thing that we want right now is to see these 11,000 people (or more) face the uncertainties of tomorrow without a job to hold on to and a family, ABS-CBN, to run to. We heal as one. Let us heal as one. Let us hope and pray for a better tomorrow.πŸ™πŸ» #IStandWithAbsCbn

Toni Gonzaga and Maja Salvador, on the other hand, recalled their journeys with the company.

Toni even revealed that working for ABS-CBN was her “biggest dream.”
