Edu Manzano supports Angel Locsin’s stance on ABS-CBN Franchise controversy




Celebrities are usually advised mum on political issues but there’s no stopping Angel Locsin from speaking her mind and making a stand. She is among the few ones who speak out against ABS-CBN’s feared shutdown highlighting the welfare of thousands of workers at stake if the license to renew of their home network’s broadcast franchise will be totally revoked.


On Instagram, Angel stressed on the jobs of thousands of employees behind the scene, from cameramen to members of production crew, which are now at risk because of the ABS-CBN’s broadcast franchise issue.


After paying tribute to the people who will be heavily affected if ever the company closes, some questioned her support for ABS-CBN's franchise renewal which she addressed point by point via Instagram post. She wrote:





“I saw some posts and been reading accusations that were thrown at me for speaking up for what I think is right. Just to clear things up,
1) I am not part of any political party, nor representing any politician.
2) I do not have an existing contract with ABS-CBN. Therefore, the company has no control on whatever I want to post.
3) Sorry to disappoint some people, but money is not everything. Hindi ko ho alam kung anong intention ni Ms. Vivian sa kanyang post, pero kung ito po ang gagamitin to discredit my name and what I stand for, hindi nyo po kailangang gawing issue. Kapag kumita po ang aking maliit na investment sa ABS-CBN, I WILL DONATE EVERYTHING TO CHARITY. Accounted.
Again, money is not everything. (For your knowledge, Maliit lang po ito. As in. It’s a privilege offer of the company to some of their employees in installment plan. Mine is payable for 5 years. Wala pa po sa half ang nabayad ko kaya sa understanding ko, HINDI KO PA PO PAGMAMAY-ARI ANG STOCKS na yun.) Nirerespeto ko ho ang opinyon ng lahat. Alam ko na magkakaiba man ng paraan, lahat naman tayo prayoridad ang kapakanan ng mga manggagawa. Yun naman po ang importante.”


Many expressed their support for the actress on the comments including Mr. Edu Manzano who said, "I can’t agree with you more Ms. Angel!"




This woman deserves respect! God bless you, Angel! This world needs more of you.
