In a lengthy Facebook post, Jimmy Bondoc expressed his disappointment and disgust for ABS-CBN over its alleged internal politics.  It also reportedly involves sexual favors for certain individuals to get ahead in the industry.

One of the first celebrities to release a statement against Jimmy Bondoc’s allegations was Angel Locsin. The actress took to her Twitter account to call out the the singer’s statements saying that to wish for a thousand people to love their jobs is just “pure evil”.

Jimmy replied to Angel’s counter statements and the actress gave her last sentiments towards the issue through a tweet which summarized her thoughts.

Meanwhile, artists and celebrities under ABS-CBN showed their support for the network on social media.  They posted a photo that commemorates 65 years of the TV network in the industry. Included in the posts are captions on how being a Kapamilya helped them grow as individuals in their respective crafts.

Among these celebrities are JM de Guzman, Gary Valenciano, Alexander Diaz, Dominic Roque, Empoy Marquez, and many more.

APPRECIATION POST ONLY. Nothing more. Three and a half years and counting, fairly a “new” Kapamilya compared to my veteran colleagues. Started in 2015 with then ABS-CBN Sports and Action and now with ANC, Ch2, S+A, at basta kung anong raket, go lang! And I admit that it is still an uphill climb. . . Grateful to be surrounded with bright, excellent, fun, well-grounded people that push you to learn something new everyday. I think what makes a Kapamilya unique is kahit sinong makasama mo sa studio, sa location, sa kahit anong coverage, instant connection agad kasi you all share the same passion in doing and striving for the best in what you do. . . Salamat Kapamilya in making the unimaginable happen — in making our dreams come true, making us mature individuals, and letting us understand different perspectives from all walks of life. Salamat po sa lahat ng nakatrabaho, nakakatrabaho at makakatrabaho: anchors, EPs, SPs, writers, directors, cameramen, Diars, RedMag, maintenance — idol ko kayo 👊🏻 . . But at the end of the day, it’s not about us, it will always be in the service of the Filipino, worldwide. Happy 65th anniversary, ABS-CBN. #KwentongKapamilya #TeamKapamilya #ProudKapamilya 🙏🏻
