Bianca Umali trends on Twitter after being body-shamed for losing weight

Bianca Umali posted a photo on Instagram that showed she's lost some weight. 

In our "beach-body" obsessed culture — and especially for people who find losing weight is difficult, and there are a lot of us — what Bianca has achieved is a good thing. And it is. Further below is an earlier Instagram post from Bianca showing how slim and svelte the Kapuso actress really is.

Unfortunately, a number of people left nasty comments on Bianca's Instagram post, saying she looked dry and old, and a host of other things best forgotten.

Thankfully, Twitter and Ruru Madrid are not having any of the hate. On Bianca's Instagram post, Ruru came in Bianca's defense. 

"I don't know what's wrong with people right now," Ruru began. "Parang ang dami laging opinyon ng mga tao. Sa totoo lang mas masakit na kung sino pa yung mga kababayan o di kaya mga kalahi natin sila pa yung nagda-down sa atin. Sana wala ng ganun, sana sinusuportahan nalang natin ang isa't isa."


Even fellow Kapuso actress Kiray Celis isn't having any of that, as she left an enthusiastic comment on Bianca's Instagram post.

"Ang ganda mo!! Yun lang masasabi ko!!" Kiray exclaimed before slamming the haters with her straight-out honesty.

On Philippine Twitter Sunday afternoon, Bianca was among the trending topics with the majority of netizens calling out the haters and defending Bianca. 

Many of them were grossed out by the hypocrisy, claiming to be for women empowerment and body positivity only to shame Bianca for losing weight.  





















Just maybe a gentle reminder that it's Bianca's body and not yours nor ours, so she's free to lose weight or gain weight as she pleases. — LA, GMA News
