Coco Martin is one of the personalities that are currently receiving a lot of hates and cr1ticisms from the netizens after the Kapamilya actor expresses his opinion over the unexpected shutdown of his home network, ABS-CBN, and even crit1cizing the government and some officials as well.
One of them was the former cast of ‘Ang Probinsyano’ where the main lead is Coco Martin. The personality said he didn’t understand why Coco said that he doesn’t know how he will feed now his family when in fact, Coco himself admitted that he already has savings that were already enough for him and his family when he leaves the showbiz. He added that Coco didn’t also help all of them who played a role in the show, instead, he said, Coco only took the small artists to use them.
The man said,
“Coco, direk, mayaman ka na kahit hindi ka na magtrabaho. Sabi mo nga sa interview sa iyo ni Boy Abunda, hindi ka na maghihirap. Eh paano ‘yung mga talent mo, mga goons, mga kontra-bida, bodyguards, foreign-noy, lahat kami gumanap sa FPJ ‘Ang Probinyano.’ Pero lahat ba kami ay natulungan mo? Hindi. Marami ang maliliit na artista na kinuha mo ang ginagamit mo rin.”
The man admitted that the production even reduced around 30% of the talent fee of the small individual who played the role in the said show. The man mentioned the food that was given to them in the set of the program. He even compared it to the food that was received by the inmate.
The man also expresses his disappointment and anger towards Coco who didn’t even look for the small cast on the show and just ignore them like they didn’t exist. He said that they felt discr1minated while they were doing the program because they never feel that they were treated right.
The man told,
“Sa pagkain, masasabi ko sa’yo, hindi kami preso. Isa pa, umulan at umaraw, wala kaming masilungan sa set kasi masyado kang busy. Kahit magpakuha ng picture, may diskr1minasyon pa rin sa’yo. Nanggaling ka rin sa maliit, ngayon naging mataas ka na di ba? Sumikat ka na, mayaman ka na… Wala kang malasakit. Hindi mo pinansin ang maliliit na artista. Sabi mo natulungan mo, kasi mayroon camera pero sa likod ng camera, hindi mo alam iyon.”
Last Tuesday, May 5, 2020, National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) released a ce4se and desist order to stop the operation of ABS-CBN because of their expired franchise. On the same day, the Kapamilya network complies to the directives given by the NTC and signed off to the television.
