Robin says sorry to wife Mariel, celebs over comments on ABS-CBN shutdown

At the height of issue regarding the quo warranto petition against ABS-CBN, Robin Padilla posted on social media and said: “Mayaman o mahirap may kapangyarihan o wala, sikat man o hindi, ang lahat dapat ay pantay pantay sa harap ng batas.”

Hours later he took down the post, but netizens were able to save a screenshot of it.

Padilla made another post later defending his stand on ABS-CBN’s franchise.“Nilaglag ko daw ang network ko wow!”

He reiterated that anyone who breaks the law should be held accountable.

“Kapag lumabag ka sa batas dapat kang magbayad sa batas dahil ako nagbayad ako ng tatlong taon sa loob ng Kulungan/Piitan/Bilibid dahil nagbayad ako sa kasalanan ko,” he pointed out.

“Let the truth prevail wag tayong maging spoiler parang teleserye lang yan na pinanonood niyo abangan niyo ang mga revelation ayaw niyo ba malaman ang katotohanan?” Padilla asked.

However, his comments did not seem to sit well with some netizens and his colleagues in the showbiz industry.

On February 14, the actor apologized to his wife Mariel Rodriguez, who is a Kapamilya, as well as to their friends in the media industry.

“I apologize to all her family and friends in ABS-CBN as well as in GMA and TV5 forgive me the ex-convict in me overtook my emotions,” the veteran actor wrote.

Padilla admitted that he was impulsive, and he could have phrased his words better.

However, he also reiterated that more than half of those who work in the media industry are “living in poverty”.

The actor also brought the issue of how the late actor Eddie Garcia “died in vain and in pain while performing his duty as an actor”.

“[S]a isang napakadilim na mundo ng showbizness 70 percent ng workers sa movie industry are living in poverty at sila yun mga nasa ground and almost 90 percent ng lead actors and actresses character actors and actresses die in poverty and shame some are exploited to gain mercy and financial assistance The King himself Eddie Garcia died in vain and in pain while performing his duty as an actor.”

“Let’s give the profit of our labor to our employers but our voices to the laborers,” he concluded.
