Actress Rita Avila took a jab at netizens who have body-shamed Angel Locsin.
A freelance artist recently shared his artwork portraying Angel as a “real-life” Darna with a curvier figure.
Angel previously went viral after she was photographed in Mauban, Quezon where netizens took notice of her weight gain.
While the photos sparked body positivity, a few netizens have left nasty comments on Angel’s fuller form.
In an Instagram post on Friday, Rita posted a cropped photo of the Darna artwork and lashed out at those who body-shamed Angel.
“Ang sabi ko sa nagpadala ay maganda ang pagtanggap ni Angel sa kanyang katawan. Sa mga makapintas lang, kawawa naman kayo,” she said.
Rita also pointed out at how others still manage to do so, while the country continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic and other pressing issues.
“So many are celebrating Angel’s confidence and acceptance. Siya MASAYA at MABUTI. Eh kayo? Sa gitna ng Covid19, mga sakit, gutom at kawalan ng hanap-buhay, bibig at malisyosong isip nyo ay gumagana pa din. Saklap,” lamented Rita.
“KAWAWA ang mga namimintas, mga chismoso chismosa, inggitero inggitera, kasi may PAGKUKULANG sa puso at isip nila. Pag di pa rin ito naintindihan nung nagsabi sa akin na wag sila tawaging KAWAWA ay mababaw pa sa sabaw ang utak. Wala na akong magagawa sa iyo,” added Rita in the comments section.
On Thursday, Angel seemingly addressed her viral photos with a recent photo she uploaded on Instagram.
