(SPOT.ph) Angelica Panganiban has never been one to mince words. So it comes as no surprise when she took to Instagram to rant about the online piracy of Star Cinema's latest offering, The Achy Breaky Hearts, which was reportedly streamed via Facebook.

 

Panganiban lamented about the long and grueling working hours of the cast and crew, writing, "Alam po ba ninyo kung gaano kahirap gumawa ng isang kwento? Isang pelikula? Isang eksena at isang shot? Kung anong kailangan namin gawin, isipin, isakripisyo para lang makaarte kami ng tama?"

 

 

 

She went on to defend her friend and That Thing Called Tadhana director, Antoinette Jadaone, who also helmed the new movie. Plenty of her commenters admitted to streaming the film on Facebook, saying that they didn't have money to watch it in theaters, but Panganiban had this to say: "Wala kayong pera, pero may pang bayad kayo ng WiFi at pang bili ng computer?"

 

Meanwhile, Star Cinema released a statement on the issue, saying, "Mahigpit naming kinukundina ang krimeng ito dahil ito ang dahan-dahang pumapatay sa industriya ng pelikulang Pilipino. Napakasakit nito at isang malaking pinsala sa daan-daang tauhang nagpagod para mabuo ang pelikula para sa mga manonood." They also advised Facebook users to report illegal links.

 

The Achy Breaky Hearts stars Jodi Sta. Maria, Richard Yap, Ian Veneracion, and Sarah Lahbati. It was released in cinemas on June 29.
