Lauren Young admitted that though she's scared that she might lose work from brands whenever she speaks up on certain issues, her right to free speech matters most to her.

"Whenever I speak out honestly may takot ako na baka mawalan ako ng trabaho from brands. But then again, in the long run, mas takot akong mawala ang freedom ko to voice out my opinions," she posted on Twitter on Sunday, July 19.

The actress remarked that she will continue using her voice. 

"So yeah I’ll post a selfie once in a while for work but you can never silence me. Periodt (sic)," she tweeted.

As a celebrity, Lauren stressed that you can always share good vibes but spread awareness to your followers at the same time. 

"Kasi sa totoo lang you can do both eh. You can spread positivity!!! Go ahead!! But I don’t think it’s spreading negativity when you spread awareness on issues that affect us all as citizens," she stated.

In another tweet, Lauren stressed that a person's fame and wealth don't mean anything if one doesn't use his or her platform to help others. 

"Walang kwenta and kasikatan mo at yaman mo if you won’t even help the people who put you there in the first place. Ang pagiging artista mo ay trabaho lamang, but you are first and foremost a HUMAN," she tweeted.

She added, "SPEAK UP!! USE YOUR PLATFORM. Ginagago na nila tayo eh and WE ALL DESERVE BETTER." 

Lauren is one of the celebrities who has been vocal about her support for the embattled network, ABS-CBN, after lawmakers denied it a new franchise.

The actress remarked that the network opened the doors for her in the entertainment industry. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I was 11 years old when ABS-CBN gave me a chance. I remember walking into the audition and meeting AJ for the first time, we talked for a bit (little did I know I was talking to my first and future loveteam) then I was called in to share my “talent”. I sang Sana by Nikki Gil from the Coke commercial during that time and did a cheerleading routine for my “dance” part 😅 I was just a little girl from Subic Bay fighting for a dream in the big city- I hd no idea during that time that that said dream would eventually come true. ABS-CBN invested and trained me into the actress that I am today and opened the door to so many opportunities. I will forever be grateful to everything that was given to me because of this break and it breaks my heart to see thousands of employees suffer during this time. My heart is with you ❤️ Now, more than ever, its important to use our voices to fight for what is right! No network wars now, just justice. Btw, this was my first ever photoshoot with ABSCBN. How time flies. #LabanKapamilya #IbalikAngABSCBN
