KaladKaren twits ‘Bato’: ‘May iba pa pong trabaho. Hanap na lang po kayo ng iba’
MANILA, Philippines — TV host and impersonator KaladKaren Davila did not let Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa’s words slide after saying that the 11,000 workers of ABS-CBN, who are in danger of going unemployed, should just find other jobs.
Mr. Senator, bagay din po sa inyo itong statement niyo. May iba pa pong trabaho. Hanap na lang po kayo ng iba https://t.co/RWxfKWyxO7

“Mr. Senator, bagay din po sa inyo itong statement niyo,” KaladKaren, or Jervi Li in real life, shot back at Dela Rosa on Twitter Thursday.
(Mr. Senator, your statement also suits for you too.)
“May iba pa pong trabaho. Hanap na lang po kayo ng iba,” she added.
(There are other jobs, you should look for another one.)
In an online interview with reporters, Dela Rosa said the over 11,000 employees of ABS-CBN should just find other jobs should the network close up shop if a 25-year legislative franchise will not be granted by Congress
“Hanap ng ibang trabaho para mabuhay, magsumikap, may ibang paraan pa naman siguro para mabuhay tayo. Hanap ng ibang jobs,” Dela Rosa said.
(Look for other jobs to make a living, work hard, there are other ways to make a living. Look for other jobs).
The House committee on legislative franchises concluded on Thursday the hearings on the media giant’s bid for a franchise.
House legislative franchises committee chairman Palawan 1st District Rep. Franz Alvarez then formed a technical working group, which is tasked to “study and draft the recommendations on the application for a franchise of ABS-CBN.”
The report is set to be presented on Friday during a House legislative franchises committee meeting.
Alvarez, however, did not mention if voting on whether or not the franchise bid of ABS-CBN will pass the committee level will happen in the same meeting.
