MANILA, Philippines – Controversial actress Rosanna Roces was saddened that her remarks on “Showtime” resulted in the 20-day preventive suspension of the ABS-CBN talent show.
The actress pointed out that the Kapamilya network took it upon itself to immediately address the issue even before the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) could call its attention.
Roces has been axed as one of “Showtime’s” judges after taking potshots at school teachers during the program’s January 7 episode.
Roces, however, maintained that she is not criticizing all teachers. She also argued that she has the liberty “to say whatever I want to say.”
“Nagpapasalamat ako sa ABS-CBN dahil binigyan nila ako ng pagkakataong humingi ng paumanhin sa aking naging pahayag sa ‘Showtime.’ Naramdaman kong nakahanap ako ng tunay na kapamilya sa ABS-CBN dahil hindi nila ako iniwan sa ere. Kung sa ibang network, gaya ng naranasan ko noon, ay iniwan ako at pinabayaang magpaliwanag ng mag-isa,” she said.
