Celebrities and employees defend ABS-CBN from allegations by Rep. Rodante Marcoleta

Though government agencies involved already clarified such allegations against the network, Marcoleta said that the statements weighed little as Congress alone is the only one to grant franchises.

As party-list representative Rodante Marcoleta summed up the reasons against the renewal of ABS-CBN Corporation’s franchise, employees and celebrities took their disbelief to Twitter and spoke up about the Congress’ statements against the Kapamilya network.

Television host and personality Bianca Gonzalez questioned why the congressmen are implying that other agencies lied about their statements clearing ABS-CBN from the allegations.

Celebrity mom Karla Estrada is speechless with the whole situation.

John Carlo Hermano sarcastically praised Marcoleta as the latter seemed to know better than any other branch of the government.

Creative Director of ABS-CBN Music Jonathan Manalo suggested that it should also be allowed to file a case against Congressmen because of said lies they’ve thrown in the series of hearings.

Singer Jona can’t help but notice the repetitive statements of Marcoleta.

Mike Navallo said that the Department of Justice already cleared Gabby Lopez’s citizenship.

“Now lawmaker should force his own interpretation,” he wrote.

“Grabe talaga ang galit ni Marcoleta sa puso niya,” Roque Rox Santos said in a tweet.

In Marcoleta’s summation, he brought up once again the issues regarding ABS-CBN Chairman Emeritus Gabby Lopez’s citizenship, ABS-CBN’s Philippine Deposit Receipts (PDRs), ABS-CBN’s alleged tax evasion, and the existence of the ABS-CBN TV Plus.

Though government agencies involved already clarified such allegations against the network, Marcoleta said that the statements weighed little as Congress alone is the only one to grant franchises.


Adding to the accusations listed above, the lawmaker also said that ABS-CBN’s reports are full of political bias.
