Angel Locsin, dubbed as real-life “Darna,” gained praises anew after photos of her curvy figure surfaced and made rounds on social media.
A netizen expressed her awe after she met Angel Locsin in person.
The Kapamilya actress was filming for her TV Show, ‘Iba Yan’ at Our Lady Grace Church in Caloocan, October 5.
Angelica Santos took the chance to shoot some photos of Locsin and uploaded them on Facebook.
“Nagsimba lang naman kami nakita ko na si Angel Locsin super gandaaaa ,” she wrote.
The photos immediately went viral, picked up by some news and Facebook pages.
Angel was wearing a plain t-shirt, pair of jeans, and boots on the said photos.
Angelica, however, did not expect her post to go viral with netizens reacting to Angel’s body figure.
However, Locsin’s current physique was noticed by some netizens and even body shame the actress.
Locsin is aware of criticisms targeting her weight, but would rather not take time out of her day to engage with those behind body shaming on social media.
Instead, she posed a question for them.
“Kung iisipin mo, maaawa ka doon sa tao, kasi anong klaseng person ka para magawa mo ‘yon? Perfect ka?” she quipped.
Kasi ako, wala akong problema. Bakit ikaw ang dami mong isyu? Ako nga, walang isyu, eh. Katawan ko ‘to, ako ‘to, sarili ko ‘to.
She further added, “Eh, ikaw, okay ka ba?”
Apparently, her fans were quick to defend the Kapamilya celebrity from the bashers.
“No matter what and how she looks like, she’s always that gorgeous inside and out. Even with a face mask. Our kind of angel,” one Twitter user said.
In a February 2011 interview, Angel remarked that she supports plus-size women.
