Hindi man nagbanggit ng pangalan si Angel Locsin, marami ang naniniwalang para kay Jimmy Bondoc ang kanyang tweet ngayong araw, May 23.

Ang Twitter post ng Kapamilya actress ay kaugnay ng mabibigat na salitang binitiwan ng "Let Me Be The One" singer laban sa "biggest TV network."

Ayon kay Jimmy, excited na siyang makita ang pagsasara ng TV network, na hindi siya nagkaroon ng lakas ng loob na pangalanan.

Si Jimmy ay kasalukuyang Assistant Vice President for Entertainment ng Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR).

Ito ang matapang na Facebook post ni Jimmy:

"I am so excited to see the biggest tv network close down.

"This company is a snake pit, where success is based on politics and sexual favors.

"NOBODY dares to talk about it because they either benefit from it, or they would rather not have them as enemies. Read before you judge me.

"ART and CULTURE have been ruined by this network. Our moral fiber as a nation, too. Wide-eyed kids seek dreams and fall in line, not knowing the hell that their lives will be plunged into.

"They have contests where the winners have been pre-determined, or are manipulated to suit the whims of the hidden bosses.

"Their news is for sale, highest bidder gets the slant. And foreign groups are usually the victors.

"I AM EAGERLY AWAITING YOUR DEMISE. I know how this sounds. And I know the nasty comments which are bound to come. I don't care.

"If you think COMELEC is bad, wait until you see the real machinery that is known as 'the biggest network.'

"This is not schadenfraude. This is hope! This is for real change.

"You have COUNTLESS VICTIMS, from sexual harassment to plain and simple bullying.

"I am so happy that your time has come."

Hindi man direktang binanggit ni Jimmy ang TV network na pinatatamaan niya sa kanyang Facebook post, malinaw na ang tinutukoy niya ay ang ABS-CBN.

May banta noon si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na haharangin niya ang franchise renewal ng Kapamilya network.

Nag-ugat naman ito sa naging karanasan ni Duterte habang nangangampanya noong 2016 presidential elections.

Umaani ng mga batikos ngayon si Jimmy dahil sa mga maaanghang na salitang pinakawalan niya laban sa television network.

Inalmahan din ito ng talents at mga empleyado ng ABS-CBN.


Ngayong Huwebes ng umaga, May 23, may sagot si Angel sa mga patutsada ni Jimmy laban sa ABS-CBN.

Pahayag ng aktres sa Twitter:

"Let me be the one to break this news to you so you don’t have to make excuses.

"The network might not be perfect but for you to be happy about thousands of people losing their jobs is pure evil.

"Maybe you’re just having a bad day. I will pray for you.

"Nung sumikat ka ba may na experience ka na sexual harassment? If yes i encourage you and all the victims to report this to the police.

"But generalizing that sexual favor is a prerequisite to success is just wrong."

Si Angel ay kasalukuyang napapanood sa ABS-CBN primetime series na The General's Daughter.


Mabilis na nakarating kay Jimmy—na madalas may mga guesting sa ABS-CBN noong mga panahong hindi pa siya appointee ng Duterte administration— ang reaksiyon ni Angel sa kanyang Facebook post.

Walang bakas na pagsisisi na sinagot ni Jimmy ang refutation ni Angel sa kanyang mga akusasyon.

Mahabang saad ni Jimmy:

"Mam Angel,

"1) all due respect to you;

"2) In my opinion, it was not a generalization, but rather a recognition of its existence. However, generalized or not, one case of verified harassment is one too many, personal or not;

"3) It is not about "pagsikat." It is more about many people who do NOT make it because they do not acquiesce;

"4) I do not believe na "sumikat" po ako, and I think this is beside the point.

"5) Filing a case under Art. 245 or 336 is not an option for most artists who are usually too young to know better. There are social repercussions that a teen or 20-something year old would not be equipped to handle. There is a case filed now, as far as I know, by a more known personality. But the case might not be open for discussion being sub judice.

"To be clear, the post was not meant to apply to the artists or the hapless employees.

"It is about the system, and the consequences of the unwarranted benefits that I BELIEVE this network has received from past administrations.

"But of course, I expected the negative reactions. So be it."
