“Too late to realize?” Robin Padilla decries ABS-CBN shutdown

“Ang nais natin ay pagbabago sa ABS-CBN, hindi ang pagsasara nito.”

Action star Robin Padilla said he only wanted “change” and not for the broadcast network ABS-CBN to completely shut down.

“Ang nais natin ay pagbabago sa ABS-CBN, hindi ang pagsasara nito,” said Robin, who was one of the network’s biggest celebrity critics in recent years.

On his Instagram account, the actor said ABS-CBN’s franchise should be acted upon immediately because the network is needed to disseminate information on the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

“Nasa panahon tayo ng humahagupit pa ang mata ng COVID-19 sa labas ng mga bahay natin at nagbabanta na makapasok at manalanta,” Robin wrote.

“Hindi po mainam na magtagal ang pagsasaayos ng franchise ng aming network. Ito ang oras para harapin ito dahil kailangan ng information ng mga Pilipino sa buong mundo at lalong kailangan ng trabaho ng nasa industriya ng telebisyon at pelikula,” he added.

Padilla then called for the immediate hearing on the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise.

He noted that the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic issues of the country are more important right now.

“Umpisahan na kagyat ang pagdinig dito at unahin harapin ang mga dapat baguhin,” the actor said.

“Mga kababayan nasa peligro ang bawat buhay ng Pilipino at ang economia ng bansa. Naniniwala ako na ang lahat ngayon ay bukas sa pagbabago at handang sumunod sa kung ano ang dapat, maitawid lang nating lahat sa pagsubok at makaahon ang Inangbayan Pilipinas,” he added.

We must always remain on guard from the mischief of the whisperer who comes quietly and blows an air of suspicion into the hearts of people and withdraws (114: 4-5). The Qur’an – the final, the eternal, the complete, and the unchangeable Book of Allah – ends with these verses. That must tell us how important it is to be on guard from such whisperers. That would enable us to harness the creative energy that flows within us for the higher good. Only then would we be able to make the best use of the synergy that comes into play when we work together in a spirit of cooperation based on mutual respect and trust. If that happens there is no way a community, a people, or a nation cannot but prosper materially and spiritually.” -https://www.islamicity.org/12964/working-together-some-thoughts-and-reflections/

The netizens aren’t happy with Robin’s posts after the shutdown of ABS-CBN:

Earlier, the actor said it’s better to let the judicial system work regarding the ABS-CBN franchise issues.

He noted that ABS-CBN has nothing to fear if it really had not broken any law.

ABS-CBN signed off Tuesday night in compliance with the National Telecommunications Commission’s (NTC) order.

A day after its 25-year license to operate expired on May 4, the NTC has directed the network to immediately halt its TV and radio operations.



ABS-CBN was given 10 days to respond and convince the agency to revoke the order.
