The issue regarding the denial of the franchise of the country’s largest network had set a massive divide among netizens in recent days.
Fans of the ABS insisted that the network did not violate any law and they are convinced that the closure is p0litically motivated.
Several artists from GMA7 had since expressed their support to their fellow in the industry who faces retrenchment by the month of August.
One of the actresses from the Kapuso network was recently placed on a hot seat after a netizens clamor for her support to the Kapamilya network.
Katrina Halili responded to some comments from her followers who called for a statement in support of ABSCBN.
One fan asked Halili to show support to Kapamilya network, or else Darna may get upset to her.
The netizens seems to refer her fellow actress Angel Locsin who became vocal about the issues of her home network.
Halili worked opposite of Locsin back in the latter’s 2004 Darna series.
Halili became a villain in the same show as ‘Black Darna’.
“Hi katring wala kaba pagsuporta sa kapamilya, makiisa ka naman sa pinag daraanan nila, magagalit si darna sayo,”
As a response, Halili then questioned the need for her to post her support to ABS if she could just include them to her prayers.
“Kailangan ba magpost talaga, pwede naman isama sila sa prayers ko.”
“Kung gusto mo sumama sa kanila, walang pumipigil sayo,”
Halili then posted a tweet from another fan, who defended her from her critics.
Obviously, a number of solid Kapamilya fans became disappointed by her answer.
According to netizen @LadyRocks23, people should not force other celebrities like Halili to be vocal in support of ABS-CBN.
“Magagalit si Darna? Ano ito sindakan, sapilitan?”
“Paki alam ba nila kay darna, lalo na yung mga ayaw at gustong tahimik lang, tama naman si Ms. Katrina na puwedeng isama sila sa prayers.”
“Umayos nga kayo, kaya kumakalat ang covid dahil sa mga gaya niyong pasaway. #RallyPaMore,”
The fan wrote as she continued to defend the actress
She also appeared to took a swipe at another Kapuso actress Jennylyn Mercado for allegedly meddling with other network’s affair.
“Nakisawsaw lang si Jennelyn Mercado, gusto niyo ata lahat din ng kapuso, sumawsaw.
“Laban niyo iyan, huwag kayong mandamay, hintayin niyong magkusa kung sino gustong sumama sa inyo,”
Jennelyn Mercado, the batchmate of Halili in Starstruck season 1 became vocal on defending the Kapamilya network.
Meanwhile, another netizen again tried to convince Halili and told that not every problem could be solved by prayers
But the 34 year old actress seemed unmoved and said that she only respect his opinion.
