But she again made abuzz not about her music but on her recent tweet.

On the said post she said, “The hot guy falling for chubby/plain girl storyline is way too overdone attraction is subjective and should not be reduced to physical attributes alone how sucky!!!!!!!”

Netizens expressed how they felt about the post as they responded on the said tweet. They suspected that it was a direct attack to the female star who was recently played the character and that was Elisse Joson.

The storyline was from an episode of ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya.’

A day after her post, she apologised to the Netizens and to the people she offended with her post. She also made herself clear that her comment is about the storyline and not the people involved in the said episode.

She also shared that she personally struggles on her self confidence and her own body.

“Hi 🙂 Just a comment on my previous tweet for anyone who was offended 🙂
