Sinagot ni Jimmy Bondoc ang mga sinabi ni Angel Locsin tungkol sa kanyang post na kung saan ay pinuna ni Jimmy ang pamunuan ng ABS-CBN at sinabing excited siyang makitang mag-sara ang TV network.
Sa kanyang social media account ay ito ang pinost ni Jimmy:
“I am so excited to see the biggest tv network close down. This company is a snake pit, where success is based on politics and sexual favors. NOBODY dares to talk about it because they either benefit from it, or they would rather not have them as enemies.”
Isa si Angel sa mga nag-react sa sinabi ni Jimmy, at ibinahagi ni Angel ang kanyang saloobin sa pamamagitan ng pag-tweet ng:
“Nung sumikat ka ba may na experience ka na sexual harassment? If yes i encourage you and all the victims to report this to the police. But generalizing that sexual favor is a prerequisite to success is just wrong.”

Hindi dito natatapos ang usapan ng dalawa. Sinagot ni Jimmy ang mga tweets ni Angel at ito ang kanyang sinabi:
1) all due respect to you;
2) In my opinion, it was not a generalization, but rather a recognition of its existence. However, generalized or not, one case of verified harassment is one too many, personal or not;
3) it is not about “pagsikat.” It is more about many people who do NOT make it because they do not acquiesce;
4) I do not believe na “sumikat” po ako, and I think this is beside the point.
5) Filing a case under Art. 245 or 336 or Ra 7877 is not an option for most artists who are usually too young to know better. There are social repercussions that a teen or 20-something year old would not be equipped to handle.
There is a case filed now, as far as I know, by a more known personality. But the case might not be open for discussion being sub judice.
To be clear, the post was not meant to apply to the artists or the hapless employees. It is about the system, and the consequences of the unwarranted benefits that I BELIEVE this network has received from past administrations. But of course, I expected the negative reactions. So be it.”
Pagkaraan ng ilang minuto ay nagpost muli si Jimmy patungkol pa rin sa tweet ni Angel:
