Liza Soberano seems not happy with Aljur Abrenica admitting he has been silent on the controversy surrounding the franchise application of ABS-CBN because he thinks the issue is “beyond” him. It’s not that I’m not vocal. I am a pro-franchise. Of course, that’s my mother’s network now. They also helped me a lot. But it’s beyond me. I mean, their fight is their fight, ”the actor was quoted as saying in a recent interview. Condemnation came swiftly from netizens loyal to the Kapamilya network. They ganged up on Aljur, accusing him of being spineless, pointing out how other stars – even those from competing network GMA-7 – have been vocal in their support of ABS-CBN.
Liza, a Kapamilya, joined the fray. She shared Star Cinema’s James Banaag reaction to Ajur’s statement on Twitter that read: “It’s just sad that we have artists who don’t understand the whole incident.” Liza simply commented, “Ouch.” Aljur is the son-in-law of actor Robin Padilla, a staunch supporter of President Duterte. The younger actor transferred to ABS-CBN from GMA-7 in 2017.
