Well, it's happened.
The National Telecommunications Commission sent a cease and desist order to ABS-CBN after the media group's 25-year operating franchise expired on May 4. After a special broadcast, ABS-CBN signed off the airwaves just before 8 p.m. on May 5.
From celebrities to politicians, numerous personalities have reacted to the news. One who has caught the attention of the internet, however, is Korina Sanchez. The broadcast journalist and news anchor posted an Instagram post decrying the whole thing, citing abuse.
Korina then went on to say Solicitor General of the Philippines Jose Calida used to be very close to her mother, adding they attended the same bible study. She then asked who Calida's God is now. She also asked when the real abusers will be jailed.
But, that's not all. A number of netizens thought it a great time to test Sanchez on the post. Let's just say they're probably staying off of Korina's comment section for the foreseeable future. One comment questioned her post, which called the shutdown abuse. In response, Sanchez replied: "Please leave. Bruha ka."
Other comments were a lot more supportive. Still, Sanchez couldn't resist a few comebacks directed to Calida.
Twitter is loving the whole thing, obviously.
In another post, Korina looked back at her career with ABS-CBN. "It was ten years ago I returned to TV Patrol. And then again left just two years ago. But I've been with ABS-CBN since it reopened in 1986 after the Revolution that defined civil liberties and brought back to the people what is the people's. Their voice," she said.
"So today we are hearing them loud and clear again," she continued. "We are certain how this finally ends. See you back soon on-air guys!"
