Poe shocked after Lapid grills ABS-CBN execs: Durog lahat ‘pag nagsalita si Pinuno!
Senator Lito Lapid may not be one of the outspoken legislators, but when he speaks, his colleagues take notice.
Senator Grace Poe expressed her admiration for Lapid Monday (February 24) after the former action star grilled his erstwhile bosses from ABS-CBN over labor issues.
During the Senate public services committee’s hearing on ABS-CBN’s franchise, Lapid questioned network executives on whether they are paying the proper benefits to their employees.
He also asked ABS-CBN chairman Mark Lopez why he thinks the network is having a hard time renewing its franchise.
Lopez said he couldn’t think of any reason why President Rodrigo Duterte is mad at ABS-CBN except over its failure to air his campaign ads in 2016.
Lapid told Lopez that the hearing is a chance for network executives to apologize to Duterte.
“Pwede kayong humingi ng paumnahin, humingi kayo ng twad, kung ano ang pagkukulang nasa inyo ang mic,” he said.
Poe chimed in, “Bihira magsalita ang ating pinuno pero ‘pag nagsalita, talagang durog lahat! Pati ako natulala doon.”
Lapid played the character “Pinuno” on ABS-CBN’s hit primetime series, “Ang Probinsyano.”
