MANILA -- Kapamilya stars rallied with employees of ABS-CBN during a noise barrage protest Saturday, following the decision of lawmakers to shut down the network for good on July 10. 

Angel Locsin, who has been actively criticizing the franchise denial, which she described as some exacting their "personal vendetta" against ABS-CBN, led the way, alongside other names such as Jake Cuenca, and love team Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber. 

Locsin even delivered a speech and vented her anger over their fellow TV personalities who chose to remain silent, or failed to make any direct criticisms towards the congressmen who killed ABS-CBN's franchise.
