Netizens were quick to call out political analyst and social media strategist Franco Mabanta for his fat-shaming post that went viral yesterday.
In a Facebook and Instagram post that he shared last April 8, Mabanta said that he is “100 percent in favor of fat-shaming.”
“I think the world would be a better place if all these weak minds that are captive to their bad food habits were constantly told to get off their fucking couches and stop being little bitches,” he said.
He added: “Nothing motivates people to get into shape like insecurity.”
The post is now deleted on his Facebook account, while the one on his Instagram is already edited.
Here’s a screenshot of the post:
