Singer-actor Janno Gibbs didn’t take it lightly when his scheduled guest appearance on one of ABS-CBN’s many shows was canceled recently.
He made sure to share his two cents about it publicly via an online post.
In there, Janno called out the network.
“Was scheduled to guest on Showtime today to promote Mang Jose. But the guesting was canceled last night. Hanggang ngayon pa ba naman ABS?,” he wrote. “Nung Sanggano part 1 alam nyo bang si Andrew at Dennis lang ang pinayagan mag guest. Ako bawal.”
Janno then noted how he supported ABS-CBN back when it was fighting to have its franchise renewed.
“Nung pinaglalaban niyo ang prangkisa nyo ay nakisimpatya pa ako. Kala ko’y lumambot na ang puso nyo matapos ang inyong mga pinagdaanan. Hindi ba dapat ay nagtutulungan tayo sa hirap ng lagay ng industriya ngayon? Masyado namang matindi ang galit nyo sa akin. Oo kailangan ko kayo at hindi nyo ako kailangan. Ngunit anu ba naman ang ilang minuto para makapag promote lang ng pelikulang malapit sa puso ko.”
As of writing, the said post is no longer available on his feed.
In another post, Janno explained why.
“I deleted it coz my management asked me politely,” he explained. “If, if were up to me I’d keep it.”
Janno reiterated that he has not been “unprofessional” in a long time.
“Yes in the past,” he admitted but he reiterated that his issue with ABS-CBN was not about professionalism.
He also defended himself from basher’s comment that he’s “not bankable.”
“I have 3 recent hit movies and 4 new movies coming out. Ako matapang maglabas ng sentiment. Ikaw duwag magpost ng tungkol sa sarili mo.”
