- Pokwang thanked Kris Aquino for their friendship through the years
- When a netizen asked why Pokwang loves Kris, she revealed that the actress helped her when she lost her job amid the ABS-CBN shutdown
- Kris had always considered Pokwang as one of her closest friends
Pokwang revealed that Kris Aquino was one of the people who helped her when she lost her work due to the ABS-CBN shutdown.
On Instagram, Pokwang wrote a short greeting to Kris on her birthday. She described Kris as one of the people she loves most for having a good heart and for being ready to lend a helping hand always.
Posting a photo of Kris, Pokwang wrote, “Happy birthday ganda @krisaquino mahal kita alam mo yan. Walang maraming tsu-tsu at palabok yun na. Stay happy and blessed kasi hindi ka maramot na tao grabe. God bless you and ingat lagi.”
A netizen tried to chide Pokwang using the popular “because?” meme of Kris and asked her, “Mahal mo siya @itspokwang28 because?”
Pokwang didn’t hesitate to reply and explained how Kris helped her when many of them lost their income following the cancellation of ABS-CBN’s franchise.
She wrote, “Sa panahon na nawalan ako ng work dahil pinasara ang ABS-CBN siya @krisaquino at si @jgl71 at @aptentertainment.ph ang umalalay sa akin.”
Their friendship has been tested through time. Back in 2010, Pokwang received a pink mini-bus from Kris as a token of appreciation. It was a gift from Kris to Pokwang for being one of the celebrities who were very vocal in supporting President Benigno Aquino III.
Kris and Pokwang worked together in the rom-com film “All You Need is Pag-ibig” back in 2015.
In 2017, Kris had an “unfollowing spree” on Instagram when she unfollowed a lot of her friends. At that time, Kris only decided to follow 10 very close friends, among those is Pokwang.
