Angel Locsin, Jimmy Bondoc continue word war over ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal

Former singer Jimmy Bondoc and Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin continued to exchange tirades over the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN.

To recall, Bondoc posted on Facebook to express his happiness and excitement over the possibility of the Kapamilya network going out of business.

He said that he would like to see ABS-CBN close down because it has been a place where success is “based on politics and sexual favors”.

As a response, Locsin told Bondoc that it was “evil” of him to express his excitement over such matter since thousands of employees and artists will be affected in case the network closes down.

Bondoc then responded to Locsin saying that he is not referring to the employees of the network. Rather, he advised the actress to “acknowledge the imperfection of the network”.

“That is a false assumption. Kayo po ang nag-generalize, hindi ako. When a network (any network) closes, it can mean a change of management or ownership. Ibig po sabihin, deserving employees would probably be retained,” he said.

“If you (referring to Locsin) acknowledge the imperfection of the network, do you have any comments on the acquisition of ownership by its current owners in light of the allegations that it was transferred to them to the disadvantage of the government?” Bondoc added.

However, it seems like Locsin was not convinced with what Bondoc said and decided to respond once again.

As seen in Locsin’s latest tweet, which she also said will be her “last response”, the actress pointed out that job security is the main issue if ABS-CBN closed down.

Even if there will be a change in management and ownership, as Bondoc claimed, Locsin said that thousands of jobs will still be jeopardized.

Regarding Bondoc’s statements on politics, sexual favors, and rigged contests in the Kapamilya network, Locsin asked the former singer why did he not file reports with authorities.

Locsin said that instead of ranting on Facebook, Bondoc should just look for proper solutions.

As of press time, Bondoc has not yet responded back to Locsin’s tweets. Any other ABS-CBN executive, artist, or staff has also not yet commented on the issue.
