‘I apologize’: Angel Locsin says sorry for those offended by her statements following ABS-CBN franchise denial

Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin has apologized for the things she said that might have offended certain people.
 
On her Instagram post, she expressed regret about her remarks that might have insulted some individuals.
 
“Uulitin ko, ‘pag hinihikayat magsalita, hindi ibig sabihin nun mag-rally na sa kalsada. There are many ways to show support. Iba ‘yung takot sa covid, iba yung ayaw lang talaga,” she said.
 
“Kung may na-offend, I apologize dahil nasaktan ko kayo. Pero hindi dahil sa sinabi kong magsalita kayo. Dahil kailangan talaga nating magsalita ngayon. Uulitin ko, magkaiba po ang magsalita sa lumabas,” she added.
 
In the recent noise barrage in protest of the denial of ABS-CBN franchise renewal, she called out celebrities who remained silent regarding the issue, saying that they chose to save face while others are fighting for their livelihood.
 
She also wrote in another Instagram post, “No one asked you to go to a rally. Obviously, you don’t need to go out to use your voice for the voiceless.”
 
Jane de Leon, who will play the new reboot of Darna, also expressed her stand on ABS-CBN, but said that she decided not to go to the rally because of the threat of the pandemic.
 
“Alam kong para sa nakakarami sa atin, masakit ang closure ng ABS-CBN. Nakiki-isa at nakikisimpatya rin po ako sa mga kapwa ko Kapamilya na nawalan ng kabuhayan. However, let us not forget that in the bigger picture, we are still at risk because we all have an invisible enemy to deal with,” she wrote.
 
Recently, de Leon posted a recent video call between her, Locsin, and Iza Calzado, showing everyone that they are on good terms.
