MANILA -- Kylie Verzosa is one of the celebrities who personally went to the ABS-CBN headquarters in Quezon City over the weekend to protest the shutdown of the Philippines' largest network.

The Miss International 2016 titleholder accompanied her boyfriend, actor Jake Cuenca, an ABS-CBN talent. 

In an Instagram post, Verzosa shared photos of her with Cuenca during the rally.

"Always by your side," she said.

ABS-CBN announced last week that it would cease the operations of some of its businesses and lay off workers effective August 31, 2020 after the House committee on legislative franchises denied the media and entertainment company a new 25-year franchise.

Aside from supporting the renewal of the ABS-CBN franchise, Verzosa also voiced out her opposition to the anti-terror law, which took effect last Saturday.

"This is for all my fellowmen who have lost their jobs in the middle of the pandemic. To the youth, we are now more than ever capable of speaking up. Use your voice, stand for what you believe in," she said in another Instagram post.

Prior to joining the ABS-CBN rally, Verzosa has been using social media to express her opinion on different issues such as the ABS-CBN franchise renewal and the Black Lives Matter movement.

The beauty queen-turned-actress is also known for her advocacy for mental health.
