Arjo Atayde to ‘Bato’ for telling ABS-CBN workers to find new jobs: ‘Mauna ka’

INQUIRER.net, July 12, 2020

Arjo Atayde took a jab at Sen. Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa after the latter told over 11,000 ABS-CBN employees who are in danger of losing work to just find new jobs.

Dela Rosa made the remark last Thursday, July 9, a day before the network’s bid for a new 25-year franchise was denied.

Following Bato’s comment, Atayde did not mince words when calling out the senator on Twitter.

“Dada ng dada… mauna ka,” the actor said while sharing a report on dela Rosa’s remark.

([You] keep on talking. You go first.)

Dela Rosa said that while looking for a job amid the pandemic would be difficult, it is not only the ABS-CBN workers who are facing this problem. “Mahirap talaga, kahit na hindi ABS-CBN. Lahat tayo apektado. Hindi lang yung ABS-CBN employees. Kaya ‘pag mawalan ka ng trabaho ngayon, talagang mahirap. Ramdam natin yung hirap na yan.”
