Poll: Willie Revillame vs ABS-CBN, Whose Side Are You On?

Popular variety/game show host and comedian/singer Willie Revillame on Monday decided to end his contract with ABS-CBN. The company on the contrary will hold Willie to his obligations under the contract. We're holding an online poll as to whose side are you on: Willie or ABS-CBN?

Here’s ANCAlerts’ tweets regarding Willie Revillame’s decision:
Revillame: Sa araw na ito, sa sarili ko, nagpapaalam ako sa ABS CBN at tapos na po ang kontrata ko sa kanilang lahat.

Revillame: Sabi sa akin, okay lang ba 1x a wk na show o kaya may show ka sa Studio 23? Nagulat ako, nawala ang ideas ko pampabuti sa Wowowee

Revillame: Gagawa po ako ng programa at gusto ko hindi 1x a week. Sa kontrata ko, ang alam ko, everyday ang dapat show ko hanggang Sept"

Now, here is ABS-CBN Corporate Communications Head Bong Osorio's official statement on Willie Revillame's press conference regarding his decision to end his contract with the Kapamilya network:
We take note of Willie Revillame's pronouncements in his press conference today.

Willie is bound to ABS-CBN by a contract until September 2011. He violated the behavioral provisions of his contract when he threatened the ABS-CBN management during the May 4, 2010 episode of Wowowee, with a resignation if management does not fire another artist of the network. His behavior was generally seen as a display of disrespect and arrogance, completely unacceptable to the Filipino public.

As the one who violated his contract, Willie has no right to have it unilaterally invalidated. Contracts are binding agreements that must be respected by the contracting parties involved. The one who violates the contract cannot be allowed to dictate whether it should continue or end. Otherwise, contracts will have no value and may be terminated based on whim.

ABS-CBN is the aggrieved party, and as such, is the only one that can decide to end the agreement.

Despite all that had happened, ABS-CBN was willing to continue with the contract. Willie however, refused to take responsibility for his actions.

ABS-CBN wishes to reiterate that it will hold Willie to his obligations under the contract which expires September 2011."
