Kapuso actor Dingdong Dantes has expressed his support for his network’s rival, ABS-CBN.
Amidst the ongoing fiasco being faced by ABS-CBN following moves towards its disenfranchisement, several celebrities have spoken up on their reactions. While it’s not surprising to hear actors from ABS-CBN speaking up on their support, for the network, an unexpected ally from the “other fence” is rather refreshing.
Dingdong, star of GMA’s upcoming teleserye “Descendants of the Sun”, has spoken up and said they are “one in the media industry.”
The actor tweeted his sentiments and said, “Magkaiba man ng bakod, we are one in the media industry. We have one love for the many talents and crafts under this Network, the products and output of which, directly or indirectly, benefit the li
ves of millions of Filipinos.”
Dingdong also mentioned Rep. Lito Atienza’s efforts to make the other lawmakers move to vote towards the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise.
He said, “Rep. Atienza of @buhayparty list in his speech yesterday at the Congress, said that: “Inaction will only spell the weakening of the foundations of our democratic system.” If Congress will not take action,” Rep. Atienza added, “this Congress is really paralyzed with inaction; and we should not be deserving to be called representatives of the people.”
In the end, Dingdong said it is best to set politics aside and focus on the rule of law.
He said, “In the end, I pray that the true interests of the people, under the rule of law, will prevail over any other political agenda conveniently veiled as a countermeasure against
alleged abu ses.”
