ICYMI: actress Jessy Mendiola posted a bikini photo on Thursday, looking hot as she always does. Her caption read: "Huling hirit sa tag init."
At first, her fans complimented her physique. IG user "ejzara7" wrote: "Wow. Sana talaga si Ms. Jess ang mapiling Darna. Wala nang mas lulipt pa sa kanya pag naka red bikini."
Another user, "emmagb16", commented: "Ikaw na FHM #1. Wala ng tatalo pa."
But soon after her on-screen partner JC De Vera posted their photo together, showing off her fuller figure, the haters jumped on the comment section to shame Mendiola's body.
Mj_santos86 said: "Grabe 'tong babaeng 'to. Magaling lang pala umanggulo. Dapat kasi hindi ganyan ang bikini mo. Pang super sexy lang 'yan e. Dapat one piece @senorita_jessy."
"Ang taba pala nito parang si Angel Locsin. Umaanggulo lang para mag mukhang sexy. Hahaha," nicoboyboy wrote.
The Maria Mercedes star did not allow negative comments to affect her. Posting a whole body picture of herself in a grey bikini, Mendiola let the world know that she loves her curves, saying, "My body may not be perfect but that will not stop me from being confident with myself."
She continued: "Well, just to inform some of you 'PERFECT' people. We all come in different sizes and shapes but that shouldn't stop us from being happy with our own bodies...Sabi nga ni Demi Lovato 'What's wrong with being confident?'"
Preach, Jessy. Because really, what's wrong with these people? Just because she is a celebrity doesn't mean it is okay for you to shame her body. And even if she isn't a celebrity, just don't do it—don't body-shame women.
Let the haters hate, Jessy. Everyone else knows what you got is what you got and what you got is perfect.
