Celebrities filled social media with messages of love and support following the decision of the Congress to deny ABS-CBN with a broadcast franchise. 

Liza Soberano was among the Kapamilya stars who penned a genuine message of encouragement to both her ABS-CBN family and fans.

Right after the hearing, the 22-year-old actress immediately took to social media to share how much she wanted to hug her ABS-CBN family. 


“Wish I could hug everyone I love from ABS-CBN right now,” Liza wrote. 

Liza went on to say how sorry she feels for the employees of the network, who are at risk of losing their jobs. 

She stated: “To all the employees who are greatly affected by this. I’m sorry. I’m sorry they aren’t sorry.”

Thanking everyone who has shown support to ABS-CBN over the course of the grueling months-long battle, she added: “To all the supporters of ABS-CBN, it’s programs, and it’s talents who stood by us through this journey. Thank you. Thank you for the endless tweets using the hashtags and thank you for your prayers. We may not be able to repay you right now, but in due time.”

She continued: “Especially to all my supporters, Liza and LizQuen fanmily. Just reading your tweets right now brings tears to my eyes. Thank you for believing in me and for supporting my projects under ABS-CBN. I will forever be grateful to each and everyone. I love you all so much.”

Meanwhile, Angel Locsin, who was among the celebrities who protested outside Congress earlier today, July 10, said she is still in disbelief over the decision of the House of Representatives on ABS-CBN’s franchise application. 

“Tapos na po ang botohan. Kami po ay tulala at hindi alam kung anong gagawin. Gusto ko lang pong magpasalamat sa ilang taong pagtanggap nyo po sa amin sa inyong mga tahanan,” she wrote in the caption of her Instagram post. 

Kim Chiu, on the other hand, said she could not comprehend the decision of Congress to deny ABS-CBN with a broadcast franchise. 

She wrote: “We voted for our law makers into power hoping that they will act for the greater good. But,what happened today? What happened to the 13 hearings? ABS-CBN proved na walang violations ang nagawa. Why are we experiencing this? Why now? Why not help each other for the better?”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

My ๐Ÿ’” for my fellow kapamilyas. . To those 70 members of the congress, we hoped that you decided based on conscience, not pride; based on Facts, not ego; based on truth, honesty, and service; not vengeance.๐Ÿ–ค. To the 11 members of the congress, THANK YOU for being BRAVE. Thank you for giving us HOPEโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™. . Our AbsCbn leaders did everything they can. Proved them wrong, showed everything, gave EVERYTHING to protect its people. Stayed calm amidst being bullied(sorry for my word). Did 13 hearings na paikot ikot, ABSCBN proved that we have NO violations. In the middle of this pandemic. Pagpapasara ng Abscbn and pagpapatupad ng terror bill ang nangyayari. What is happening to our country?. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป #why
