Ara Mina Quits GMA Teleserye ‘Pinulot Ka Lang Sa Lupa’ Saying ‘I won’t tolerate this.’
Recently, Ara Mina went viral around social media after she posted a controversial message on her Instagram account. According to her, she decided to quit on a project yesterday, January 6.
She started the post saying: “More than 2 decades na ako sa industriyang ito, sobrang dami ko nang nakatrabaho at nagawang trabaho.
“Kahit mahirap na trabaho, di ko ugaling magreklamo kasi I’m a very patient person and hindi rin ako overly sensitive. I’m very open-minded and understanding.”
She claims that this particular project made her feel undervalued as an actress.
“Just recently, na-experience ko ang siguro pinaka-disappointing na pangyayari sa career ko. I have never felt slighted and devalued like how I am feeling right now.” She said.
“And it’s because of this one show that I committed myself to. Na akala ko mabibigyan ng halaga yung commitment ko and my value as an actress, which I believe is not so much for me to ask.” She continued.
“Inintindi ko ang delays, I honored my contract and commitment kahit na ang dami kong offers since October of last year. Kasi may word of honor naman ako. Pero ganito pala ang isusukli sa ‘kin.” She added.
She then shared that even though she is a single mom and needs to work, she knows her worth which prompted her to decide to quit.
“Now, I want out. I won’t tolerate this. Not because mataas ang tingin ko sa sarili ko. But, I know my worth. And for me to be able to work well, kailangan maipakita kong may respeto naman ako sa sarili ko bilang artista.” She said.
“Yes, I need to work. I am a single mother. But, I cannot allow them to devalue me any further. There are surely better people to work with. Therefore, I quit!” She exclaimed.
She confirmed in the comments section that she was pertaining to her teleserye ‘Pinulot ka Lang Sa Lupa’ which is produced and aired by GMA.
Meanwhile, many of her friends in the industry consoled her with comments.
