The ‘Angel’ effect: More Kapamilya celebrities are now speaking out about ABS-CBN shutdown

Seemingly, Kapamilya stars have responded to Angel’s call as more and more of them are starting to express their thoughts too.

It looks like some Kapamilya stars have responded to Angel Locsin’s tirades against her fellow ABS-CBN artists who remained quiet amidst the ABS-CBN franchise renewal rejection.

On Saturday, Kapamilya stars took to the streets to express disapproval of the Congress’ decision against ABS-CBN’s franchise. Angel took the chance to call out her fellow Kapamilya stars for being silent on the issue.

She didn’t mention names but she specified those who are active on Instagram but cannot spare time to support the network.

“Sa lahat ng artistang hindi nagsasalita, ano? May career pa ba kayo? Wala na, wala na kayong network,” the actress said.

[To all artists who are not speaking out, Do you still have a career? No more, you have no network anymore]

“Kahit magpa-cute kayo diyan sa Instagram, mag-send kayo ng mga sad face —hindi niyo nadadamayan ang mga katrabaho niyong dahilan kung bakit kayo sumikat.” she added.

[Even though you post your cute pictures on Instagram and send sad reactions, you are not sympathizing with your workmates who are the reason why you become famous]

Along with Angel Locsin, other stars who are also present were veteran actors Jaime Fabregas and Joel Torre, host Bianca González, young actors Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber and Couples Jake Cuenca, and Kylie Versoza and Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.

Enchong Dee who has been active in voicing out his sentiments against the government also called out his fellow artists to speak out.

Other celebrities like Chienna Filomeno, Lauren Young, Jona Viray, and Jennylyn Mercado have been constant in showing support to the network.

As Congress’ denied ABS-CBN’s appeal for renewal, the network announced that they will start to lay-off workers starting August 31 which signifies the loss of jobs by roughly 11,000 Filipinos.
