Wala na naman si Gerald Santos sa SOP. I am not uploading any of the Pop World Stars in protest.
The reason why Gerald Santos was placed on forced leave was because the staff doesn’t like him — at kinakawawa talaga si Gerald sa GMA. They think that Gerald has gotten too thin for TV. It’s so awful. I don’t think Gerald looks thin. Naghahanap lang ng rason ang SOP staff para matanggal si Gerald sa show. Eh paano kung mataba? Si Jaya ang taba-taba sa TV hindi siya pinapapayat. Si David Pomeranz ang sagwa tingnan sa TV at mas sikat pa sa kanya si Sam Milby sa Pilipinas, bakit pa siya ginuest? Kung itsura lang ang basehan — and of all things “being thin for TV” — ang daming hindi dapat natin makita sa SOP. It’s so unfair.
Wala nang magagawa si Gerald dahil maliit siya. So ibig sabihin wala nang chance si Gerald bumalik sa showbiz dahil payat siya? What if he never gains weight? I personally have a hard time gaining weight — may metabolism talaga ng ganyan. Ang lakas ko kumain ano, I don’t gain 10 pounds overnight like some people. Hindi naman binoto si Gerald ng tao sa Pinoy Pop Superstar dahil mataba o payat siya.
Grabe kayo SOP staff. I used to think you were not prejudiced in this way unlike some people out there in Pinoy showbiz. You gave people like Gerald, Marky and Rainier, even Jonalyn who don’t look like typical showbiz types, a chance to succeed. You gave normal people, who were willing to work hard, hope. No longer do you need to look like Richard Gutierrez or have family connections to get a foot in the door. Parang gusto niyo yata puro generic mestizo and mestiza ang nasa bakuran niyo tulad ng ABS-CBN. Lahat sila doon, bata o matanda magkamukha. Why? Kasi pare-pereho lang ang background nila sa buhay.
I can’t believe you are treating Gerald like this. He’s harmless. What’s 3 minutes every weekend? May fans pa rin naman siya — people who would rather see him, than let’s see — that USELESS drummer girl who is nameless to me because she’s so USELESS. Do you think the fans will actually miss that girl if she leaves? You even gave her a birthday celebration once — what for? For playing drums we don’t even know she’s playing really. Kaninong kamaganak siya, ha? Why are you forcing us to watch her?
I’m so upset.
My god, mukhang hindi na natin makikita sa Gerald on TV ever again. What an unceremonious ending.
Seriously, kailangan talaga live protest. Mga Geralddicts nasaan na kayo? Gerald needs you now more than ever.
