Karen Davila has defended someone from the public’s criticism.
On July 1, Thursday, the ABS-CBN reporter took to Twitter to share her thoughts on a certain celebrity’s big move.
“Let us be slow in casting judgment over a person’s decision to leave. Hindi po natin alam ang buong kuwento. Lahat naman po tayo kailangang magtrabaho. Maliit po ang industriya. Bilog po ang mundo. Magkikita-kita rin tayo. All will work out in God’s time.”
While Karen did not name the person she was referring to, she posted the tweet on the same day that Bea Alonzo was officially launched as a Kapuso. ICYDK, Karen used to be a host and reporter for GMA Network. She moved to ABS-CBN in 2001.
Many netizens were shocked by Bea’s network transfer and aired their sentiments on one of her IG posts.
“Ang sakit, [nakakatampo].”
“Too early, @beaalonzo, para umalis ka. [For] 20 years, sinamahan ka ng [ABS-CBN] sa hirap at ginhawa. Hinintay mo muna sana matapos [ang] election if makakabalik ka pa ng [ABS-CBN]. I’m having ‘me at my worst’ and ‘You had me at my best, pero binalewala mo lang lahat ‘yon. And you chose to break my heart.’ #kapamilyaforever.”
On her latest upload on YouTube, Bea shared her reasons for moving to GMA Network.
“You know, this decision is both exciting and terrifying for me. But if there is anything that this pandemic has taught me, it is that you only live once. Life is short and you have to do things that make you feel alive. And that, to me, is chasing my dreams and performing my purpose.”
