Liza Soberano has decided to postpone launching her own YouTube channel after Congress denied ABS-CBN its franchise renewal on Friday, July 10.

“In light of what happened to ABS-CBN yesterday, I have decided to postpone the launch of my YouTube channel,” Soberano said yesterday, July 11 on Twitter, referring to her channel “Life with Liza”.

“I would like to take the time to grieve with my fellow Kapamilya and reflect on the recent happenings,” she explained. “Thank you for being patient and understanding. God bless!”

Soberano is among the stars of the media giant who has been vocal in her support of the franchise renewal.

Following the Congress vote on Friday, she tweeted, “To all the employees who are greatly affected by this. I’m sorry. I’m sorry they aren’t sorry.”

She also thanked supporters of ABS-CBN, telling them, “We may not be able to repay you right now, but in due time.”

After ABS-CBN was slapped with two more cease-and-desist orders on June 30 for Sky Direct and TVPlus, she questioned the time dedicated to tackling ABS-CBN’s franchise rather than on “ways to help our kababayans who are struggling during this pandemic.”

Congress’ decision came after multiple hours-long hearings from May to July where ABS-CBN executives were grilled by House representatives on issues such as ownership concerns, taxes and labor issues, among others. JB
