Netizen strikes back at Jimmy Bondoc for rants against ABS-CBN

Netizen strikes back at Jimmy Bondoc for rants against ABS-CBN

[mashshare]
  • A netizen questions Jimmy Bondoc for not reacting to Duterte harassing women openly
  • The netizen wanted to point out that before he was appointed to a government position, Bondoc was one of the ABS-CBN artists who followed orders from the heads of the network

After Jimmy Bondoc posted on his Facebook account about his excitement for “biggest network” closing down, celebrities and the public alike have reacted to his rant.

Bondoc had been referring to ABS-CBN whose franchise license is still up for renewal and will expire in 2020. He claimed that there were instances of fraud, sexual harassment, and politicking during his time there as an artist.

One netizen took Bondoc to task for what he denied was schadenfreude.

Though she admits that there are a lot of times she was irritated with  ABS-CBN network, she questioned Bondoc for not reacting to President Rodrigo Duterte harassing women openly.

Duterte has made inappropriate comments about women on several occasions, including rape jokes. “As long as there are many beautiful women, there will be more rape cases,” Duterte said in reaction to Davao’s high number of rape cases.

Bondoc had mentioned that the success of the network was based on politics and sexual favors which made her ask why he kept silent when the government was being corrupt.

In 2016, Bondoc was appointed by the president as the Assitant Vice President for Entertainment for PAGCOR, during which time his music career seemed to become stagnant.

The netizen wanted to point out that before he was appointed to a government position, he was one of the ABS-CBN artists who followed orders from the heads of the network.

Bondoc’s rant has fired up the network’s supporters, Kapamilya celebrities and even the rival channel’s personalities who also posted their reactions on social media.

Angel Locsin responds to a Marcos supporter claiming to be a doctor

Angel Locsin responds to a Marcos supporter claiming to be a doctor

[mashshare]
  • A netizen claiming to be a doctor downplayed Angel Locsin’s political beliefs
  • The doctor said the actress does not know her history
  • Angel Locsin responds to a basher

Angel Locsin has been labeled an NPA (New People’s Army) sympathizer by some Twitter users. This was after Angel responded to a Marcos supporter who insinuated that a particular senatorial candidate a party list were linked to the NPA.

One netizen who claimed to be a doctor criticized Angel’s knowledge of the country’s history. The doctor in question is apparently based in Singapore and worked previously in Eastern Samar.

“Dear Ms. Angel Locsin, Artista ka. Doctor ako. FYI lang. please take time to know your Philippine history very well. Your whining here on twitter is so embarrassing. Walang laman eh. NpA sprouted because of the liberal party whom you’re defending. Go to the mountain 4 u to know,” the basher said.

The actress did not back down and responded.

“Bat hindi ho kayo ang mamundok ng makatulong pa ho kayo sa mga lugar na malayo ang ospital kesa ho gamitin nyo pa ho yung oras nyo sa pag tweet sa akin? Inaano ko po ba kayo, ma’am para magalit ka ng ganyan?”

The doctor retorted, “Fyi, i am from eastern samar na madami ang NPA. Kaya hindi mo na kelangan sabihin sakin mamundok. Baka kaelangan mo yan for you to get in touch with reality. Not with written scripts.”

Angel then replied, “Lagi po ako sa bundok. 🙂 maganda na maramdaman mo na malawak ang mundo at napaliit lang natin. Very humbling. Try nyo rin po at mukhang kailangan nyo po, Doc.:)”

But the basher wasn’t done though, as she threw shade at Angel for being an actress.

“Ganito ka shallow si Ms. Angel Locsin. Comparable to an empty can. Too noisy but nothing inside. Bawal ba magcomment sa inappropriate actions nya? As artista, she should be responsible with her actions and choice of words,” .

Angel then responded by describing her upbringing.

“Bilang doctor, responsible ka rin ho dapat. Nakakahiya po kayo. Siguro wala ho kayong client na artist kung ganyan ang tingin nyo samin. Mapangmataas ka po. Pero wala namang laman ang sinasabi. Pinalaki ho ako ang maayos ng magulang ko at tinuruan ho akong lumaban para sa tama.”

Former high school bully sends Angel Locsin an apology letter on Instagram

Former high school bully sends Angel Locsin an apology letter on Instagram

[mashshare]
  • Angel Locsin receives apology from former high school bully at USTHS
  • Locsin forgave her bully and even asked for an apology too as she reasoned that ‘it takes two to tango’ when it comes to mistakes
  • The Kapamilya star urged her followers to do the same, as long as their efforts are sincere in order not to regret anything in life

Due to Angel Locsin’s portrayal of strong female characters, it was hard to imagine that she too was bullied in the past.

Filipina television and film actress Locsin, 33, posted this Friday on her Instagram story an exchange with a former high school bully who sought forgiveness for past transgressions.

Her former classmate from the University of Sto. Tomas High School reached out to the star of “The General’s Daughter” through a private message on Instagram, to apologize for his/her actions when they were younger.

The user’s identity was protected by Locsin and his/her message read: “Hi Angel, you probably don’t remember me but I used to not like you back in USTHS. I remember I bullied you before… I want to say I am sorry. I want you to know (while I am watching your movies in Netflix) that I am extremely amazed by how good an actress you are! Congratulations on how you have become a very good actress! I can probably say that perhaps, I am a fan now! Again, I apologize.”

“Hello! Mga bata pa tayo noon. Your message made me smile. Salamat. Pasensiya na rin kung may nagawa ako para hindi mo ako magustuhan. Sabi nga nila, it takes two to tango. So ayun. Pasensya na. Ingat lagi!” responded the famous actress.

She then went on to tell her Instagram followers that she was “quite moved” by the sudden act of contrition and shared it online for anyone who needed to be inspired by her former bully who now turned over a new leaf.

The Kapamilya star has served as an inspiration to many because of her charitable heart.

“At some point in our lives, we’ve all been bullied, and we’ve all been bullies. But as a wise Beatle once wrote, ‘Life is very short, and there’s no time for fussing and fighting, my friend’. So if you have the chance to apologize to someone you’ve hurt, take it. And if someone asks for your forgiveness, give it to them. In either case, if your efforts are sincere, you’ll never regret it,” claimed Locsin.

Angel Locsin speaks up about walk-out issue; instead of making up stories reporters should directly clarify it with her

[mashshare]
  • Many were asking about Angel Locsin’s rumored walk–out in one of the taping days of The General’s Daughter.
  • Showviz reporters did not approach her to confirm personally about the issue which compelled her to speak up.
  • She stressed that if there are things needed some clarifications, she is easy to contact anyway.

Angel Locsin’s rumored walk-out in one of ‘The General’s Daughter’ taping on February 15 has made abuzz in the entertainment circuit. Many have been asking about the reason behind such move. Despite the speculations, none of the entertainment reporters bothered to clarify it with the lead star of the said action-drama series.

It then compelled the actress to speak up.

According to rumors, Locsin had issues toward the director Manny Palo, but some have denied it. A reporter asked Angel’s co-star Tirso Cruz III during the birthday of Sen. Jinggoy Estrada but he failed to get a direct reply since according to the veteran actor came in later.

“Late call kasi ako. Pagdating ko dun, nakaalis na siya. Hindi ko talaga alam, bakit,” Tirso said.

He was also asked to confirm if there was truth about Locsin’s so-called ‘attitude problem’ toward the director. Cruz III denied it since the two (Locsin and Palo) have a good relationship.

“Ay hindi, Okay kami kay direk Manny. Wala kaming problema sa kanya. Okay sa set, walang problema.”

Recently a video on Youtube was uploaded and it showed reporters asking Ryza Cenon (another co-star of Locsin) regarding the walk-out issue. Cenon also said she has no idea what really happened that day because she was asleep.

She added that when she woke up Angel had already gone.

Allan Diones tagged Angel Locsin about the video of Ryza Cenon being interviewed about the walk-out issue that occurred in February. Locsin replied to the said rweet.

On her post, she thanked Diones for tagging her. She expressed her puzzlement on why reporters have not asked her directly about the issue. Stories were already published but none had the time to get her side.

Diones eventually sent a DM to Locsin on Twitter.

If they really want the truth, then she is easy to contact, anyway.

Angel Locsin clarifies her remark that ‘The General’s Daughter’ director is a “terror”

Angel Locsin clarifies her remark that ‘The General’s Daughter’ director is a “terror”

[mashshare]
  • The General’s Daughter star Angel Locsin talked about the show’s director, Manny Palo.
  • She said that contrary to others saying that he’s a “terror,” she finds him really caring. 

Angel Locsin had nothing but kind words to the director of The General’s Daughter, Manny Palo.

During the press conference of her first ever teleserye under Dreamscape, for her prime time comeback after a few years of hiatus, she shared what’s it like to work with Palo as a director.

“Si Direk Manny Palo kasi is brilliant. Ang swerte namin na nagkaroon kami ng direktor na alam niya kung anong gagawin. Siya kasi yung kaya niya kaming i-control lahat. Kasi kahit anong sabihin namin sa kanya, memorize niya yung script so hindi namin siya maloloko.”

Locsin added that because the director knows what he is doing, they often finish their taping schedules on time.

“Alam niya yung gagawin niyo sa bawat eksena kaya ang bilis bilis din niya mag shoot. Natatapos namin yung schedule namin. Plus ang gaan din niya ka-trabaho.”

The actress then addressed her remark that director Palo is a “terror” on the set, saying that others may only view him that way maybe because he had a bad day or someone did something wrong. However, she thinks that he’s really kind and caring.

“Sabi ng iba terror daw si Direk Manny. Siguro pag may mali ka, ganon. Or siguro, bad day lang si direk pero he’s really nice. Actually ang bait ni direk. At maalaga siya sa mga tao. “

She even admitted that the cast sometimes makes fun of the director whenever he gets angry.

“Minsan pinapagtawanan namin pag nagwawala siya pero part niya na yun eh. Parang hindi pwedeng hindi eh. Boring. Boring yung set. At umpisa palang sinabi niya ‘walang diva sa inyo ha, ako lang ang diva,’ kaya siya lang ang diva ganon. “

On the other hand, Locsin admitted that her character on the series is her most complicated role thus far. She has also praised her co-stars.

“Masasabi ko na I think eto yung pinaka-complex [and] complicated na character na gagawin ko. Mahirap po siya. Actually mga characters po namin, mahirap gawin. Pero fun, kasi yung mga ka-eksena ko po ang gagaling umarte so nakakakuha po ako sa kanila ng emosyon.”

The Reason behind Angel Locsin’s long absence in making television series

The Reason behind Angel Locsin’s long absence in making television series

[mashshare]
  • Angel Locsin addressed the topic of her five-year hiatus from doing teleseryes.
  • She said she had an agreement with ABS-CBN that she will not accept projects until Darna has been completed.
  • The actress announced her withdrawal from the film in 2017.

Angel Locsin has been missing in action from teleseryes since The Legal Wife. And now that she is coming back with The General’s Daughter, she shared the reason why it took her five years to star in a series again.

In the span of a few years, the actress went through a break-up, a spinal injury, and an almost resignation from ABS-CBN.

The reason for her teleserye hiatus was speculated to be one of those occurrences but at the press conference of The General’s Daughter, she shared that it was actually not the case.

So why? Darna.

“Noong gagawin ko po dapat ‘yung ‘Darna,’ mayroon kaming agreement ng ABS na hindi ako tatanggap ng ibang project hangga’t ginagawa po ‘yung ‘Darna.’ Dahil inabot tayo ng lampas limang taon ata ‘yung preparation ng ‘Darna,’ na-delay nang na-delay.”

Star Cinema announced in 2014 that Locsin would play as the Filipino female super hero once again for the film adaptation.

“Though nakakagawa ng ibang guestings, ng pelikula, ‘yung teleserye not allowed.

“May agreement naman po kami sa ganu’n, kasi mahirap at very physical. Pati ‘yung schedule na kailangan doon sa ‘Darna,’ medyo challenge. Natagalan po talaga.”

Though she was absent from teleseryes, she did take on some acting roles, including a two-part episode for Maalaala Mo Kaya, and a guest appearance in La Luna Sangre. She also continued to be a judge in Pilipinas Got Talent.

The actress was also in two non-action films under Star Cinema.

In 2017, she has decided to withdraw from Darna, citing her injury and how the role would require a lot of physical routines.

The General’s Daughter will premiere on Monday, January 21, after FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
