Amid ongoing protests against the shutdown of ABS-CBN, Sharon Cuneta took to social media to clarify the fight of the 11,000-strong workers of the media giant. 

In an Instagram post on Monday, May 11, the Megastar said ABS-CBN’s talents and employees are not trying to put up a fight with President Rodrigo Duterte, but are rather voicing out their sentiments following the cease-and-desist order from the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC). 

Mga kaibigan at Kapamilya, gusto lang po namin linawin na we at ABS-CBN are not fighting the President. We are fighting to withdraw the Cease and Desist order issued by the NTC. Galing din po sa Boss namin yan. Para lang po malinaw. Salamat po,” she wrote. 

Sharon is a staunch supporter of President Duterte. 

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN’s broadcast operations stopped last May 5, a day after the franchise of the network expired.
