"Kuya dennis sana masagot mo ito bakit wala si ma'am Jen sa GMA STATION ID at totoo ba na lilipat na siya sa ABC CBN," a TikTok user asked in the comment section of the actor's short video on the platform.

"May ABS pa ba?," Dennis answered sarcastically which sparks controversy among Kapamilya fans.

The new Station ID of GMA was released on Friday, June 28. Fans of Jennylyn are speculating about her absence in the said video as she is a homegrown talent and considered as a 'big star' of the network.

After receiving backlash online, the actor turned off the comment section of his TikTok video, in which the controversial comment was posted.

Meanwhile, Dennis Trillo’s camp, through Jan Enriquez, released a statement claiming that the actor’s TikTok account has been hacked and those remarks "did not come from Dennis."

“We would like to inform the public that Dennis Trillo’s TikTok account was hacked around noontime today, July 1, 2024. Several comments were made using his name, and we assure everyone that these remarks did not come from Dennis. He is known for his kindness and respect, and these comments are out of character for him. We are currently addressing the issue to prevent it from happening again. Thank you.”

In 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Congress voted not to grant ABS-CBN a fresh franchise due to the network's alleged “numerous violations." Despite the downfall, the Kapamilya Network resurrected and now the leading media and entertainment network in the country due to content creation and collaboration with other media entities.
