The pair also complemented their participation at the noise barrage with posts on their respective social media accounts, lamenting the fate of thousands of the Kapamilya network's workers who stand to lose their jobs effective August 31.
In her post, Toni expressed the pain of reading messages from people she used to work with. "Everyday ang sakit mag bukas ng viber dahil nagpapaalam na lahat ng mga katrabaho namin samin," she wrote in a post.
"Sa lahat ng nasa posisyon ngayon, hindi namin makakalimutan ang ginawa nyo sa mga trabahador ng ABS-CBN. You may have the power now but it will not be forever," she warned.
"This is to remind our kapamilyas, there is hope. There’s still tomorrow. We will not forget what the people who have power did to us and we respect their decision with all humility,” she said.
She later added, "Lord, yakapin mo po lahat ng mga kapamilya namin na nawalan, nasasaktan at nanghihina. We will continue to keep our faith in Christ that He will sustain us during these trying times." Read her entire message below:
