"Ang totoong magdudusa dito ay ang mga pangkarinawang manggagawa."

These were the words of Vice Ganda as he reflected on the impact of the shutdown of ABS-CBN. 

The network announced that it will start laying off its employees in August after its franchise was denied by the House committee. 


"Sa pagpapasara ng ABS-CBN mawawalan ng malaking pagkakakitaan ang mga Lopez. Pero sigurado akong di sila maghihirap. Napakayaman na nila para maghirap," he tweeted on Friday, July 17. 

The It's Showtime host pointed out that the ordinary workers are the true casualties of the decision of the lawmakers.

"Ang totoong magdudusa dito ay ang mga pangkarinawang manggagawa na nawalan ng trabaho. Sila ang maghihirap,” Vice said. 

He added, "Kaya kung inaakala nyong nagtagumpay kayo e nagkakamali kayo. Mali ang natarget nyo. Mali ang pinatay ninyo. At lahat yan ay mumultuhin at gagambalain kayo.  Alam nyo kung sino kayo!" Vice remarked.

On July 11, Vice could not help but be emotional on It's Showtime a day after the Congress voted to shut down the network. The comedian walked out in the middle of the show's opening number. 

According to Vice, he needed to exit the stage that time to cry.

"Kailangan kong umexit sa point na yun para umiyak. I couldn’t fake it. Pero ok nako after humagulgol," he explained on social media. 

Meanwhile, in another episode of It's Showtime, Vice paid tribute to the 11 lawmakers who voted to give ABS-CBN a new franchise. 

"Gusto lang po namin linawin na lahat po ng mga manonood natin, lahat po nang mga pumasok dito na galing sa iba't ibang barangay at distrito ay chineck namin kung ang kanilang mga congressmen ay pasok doon sa 11 na mga kaibigan namin. Charot!" he quipped during the show's "Super FiestStars" segment.
