DJ Chacha wasn’t the only one who has had enough of the senator.
Veteran singer Zsa Zsa Padilla and comedienne K Brosas slammed Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa for his allegiance to President Duterte and his stand on ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal issue.
On Tuesday, the senator said the nation’s well-being was more important than the 11,000 people who would be left unemployed if the broadcasting network would cease to operate.
“What is 11,000 compared to the whole Filipino nation na matagal nang sinamantalahan ng isang kompanya kung talaga ma-prove yan sa hearing? What is 11,000 compared to the whole Filipino nation?” he said.
Zsa Zsa expressed her disappointment over Bato’s statement on Twitter.
Quoting ABS-CBN News’ tweet, she wrote: “Paano naman po ang pamilya ng bawa’t isa sa 11,000? Kay dami pong sinusuportahan, pinapaaral, tinutulungan ng 11,000. May maipapalit po bang hanap buhay para sa lahat? Parang hindi naman ganun kadali humanap ng trabaho para sa lahat ng mawawalang ng hanap buhay. Nakakalungkot.”
In another tweet, she emphasized her empathy for those who would lose their livelihood.
“Sa tutoo lang, naiiyak ako sa mga naririnig kong salita. Bakit naman ganyan? Napakasakit naman. Hindi biro na mawalan ng hanap buhay. Hindi mo dapat ito gustuhin para sa kapwa mo at sabihin na ikabubuti ito ng pangkalahatan. May maibibigay bang kapalit na trabaho? Paano na?”
Meanwhile, K expressed her disappointment with a play on words of the song Pusong Bato.
“Sing along time ..Di mo alam dahil dito daming di makakain. Di rin makakatulog dahil gusto mong saraduhin. Kung ako’y muling boboto sana’y di maging katulad mo. Tulad mo na may pusong… BATO!”
