Ogie Diaz revealed how he turned down to feature a movie star in his vlog as he knew that the latter was in favor of the ABS-CBN shutdown.
In his vlog for his "I-chika Mo Na, Dali!" YouTube series, the talent manager and comedian revealed that it was the film's promo coordinator who asked him if the movie star can do a guest appearance in his vlog, but he denied.
"Hindi mismo 'yong artista 'yong lumapit sa akin kundi 'yong promo coordinator para sabihin sa akin na baka pwede mo i-guest ito sa vlog mo, itong artista na ito. So derechahan kong sinabi sa kanya, ‘No. Yes to ABS-CBN shutdown siya. Sorry.’" he said.
Ogie added that he remains firm by his decision, saying he will not allow guest appearances for celebrities who supported the decision of the media giant being shut down.
"Firm ako diyan and that's my stand at kung sino 'yung mga kakilala ko o kaibigan na nag-yes to shutdown, hindi ko kayo ige-guest," he explained.
"Sabi ko naman kumbaga kung maganda naman 'yung pelikula niya kikita naman 'yun kahit wala 'yung tulong ko di ba? Sabi ko lang sana nag-improve na 'yung acting niya." he added.
Throughout the vlog, Ogie did not reveal the identity of the movie star.
This was also not the first time he talked about the matter.
Last November 27, Ogie made a Facebook post regarding such.
"Asking for my support ang isang namamahala ng isang movie for the filmfest. Baka daw pwede kong i-guest at interbyuhin sa aking youtube channel yung isang bida doon," he said.
"Sabi ko nang wala nang paligoy-ligoy pa, 'No. Yes to ABS-CBN shutdown siya. Sorry.'" he went on. "Kung maganda naman yung movie niya, hindi naman niya ako kailangan. Kikita pa rin yan. Sana lang, mahusay na siyang umarte."
It was last July when Congress denied ABS-CBN of a new franchise, shutting down its broadcast operations and laying off thousands of employees of their jobs.
