Not today haters.
ABS-CBN broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez is fed up with the bashers of the Kapamilya network.
A day after the government shut down the network over the absence of a franchise, the television host unleashed her beast mode and fired off nasty zingers against Solicitor General Jose Calida and other critics of the network.
Many netizens are amused with Korina’s nasty comments online, propelling her name to land as one of the trending topics on Twitter on May 6.
“Please leave. Bruha ka,” Korina commented on Instagram when netizen questioned her statement on the government abuse inflicted on the network.
She also branded Calida, who has asked the Supreme Court to revoke the franchise of ABS-CBN, as the “mother of viruses.” “Ewan ko baket di pa yan kinikidlat,” she said.
Korina, who has been working at ABS-CBN since 1986, also had no patience for critics leaving comments on her Instagram page. “Oh Puhleeeez itama mo muna ingles mo o kaya magtagalog ka nalang kaya,” she said.
Korina also hit back at another hater who sought an accounting of the rehabilitation funds for typhoon Yolanda-hit areas. Her husband Mar Roxas previously served as Interior and Local Government Secretary during the Aquino administration.
“Nag-aran ka ba ha? So naiintindihan mo ang LAHAT ng result ng inquiry na WALAng kinalaman si Mar sa Yolanda funds? O bingi at bulag ka? Tanungin mo si Ping Lacson ano nangyari sa pondo,” she said.
To a netizen’s allegation that ABS-CBN is using its employees to escape the law, Korina commented: “OH PUHLEEEZ. Employee ka?”
“Nasagot na po lahat yan. Do your homework before you comment on my page,” she said.
Earlier, Korina shared throwback photos of her days at ABS-CBN and posted her sentiments about the network shutdown. She also remained upbeat ABS-CBN will eventually resume broadcast operations.
“So today we are hearing them loud and clear again. Why are we happy? Because we are certain how this finally ends. See you back soon on-air guys!” she said in one of her posts.

Upon the restoration of press freedom after the 1986 Revolution, young journalists then regained what had been lost for more than 20 years and just pushed it to the limits of this newfound power. This is the power of media to speak up, put government to task and give the people their voice back. A show called HOY! Gising! was born. Unheard of. We would lambast the very same administration who gave us back this power to monitor them and require acceptable service. And we had no fear of repercussion. Walang gantihan noon. Walang journalist na takot noon. Walang preno. The system, this way, corrects itself. But, wow. How far back have we pedalled from a shining bright moment in our story as a people. While I miss this moment, 30 or so years later, I realize we still have another chance at another bright, shining moment. It won’t happen, if we don’t speak up. Sa mga sarili naten ang sigaw ko: “HOY! GISEEEEEEENG!”.

Why are we happy? Kasi ngayon mas malinaw na. Napakalinaw kung nasan ang puso ng tao.💙💚♥️ It was ten years ago I returned to TV Patrol. And then again left just 2 years go. But I’ve been with ABSCBN 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. So today we are hearing them loud and clear again. Why are we happy? Because we are certain how this finally ends. See you back soon on-air guys!💚💋😍
