Kapuso actress Bianca Umali was bashed by netizens who claimed that she was copying Nadine Lustre in her Instagram posts.
Although many expressed their love and adoration for the young actress, some netizens found something wrong in the photo for them to criticize it.
Even though Bianca didn’t engage with her bashers, her fans and supporters defended her and responded to the negative comments about her.
The 20-year old actress simply posted her mirror selfie showing her outfit and fit body but some netizens decided to leave negative comments about her and even used the name of Nadine.
One netizen basher pointed out that she is ugly and she was copying the posts of Nadine on her Instagram.
“Pangit mo talaga ginagaya molang si queen nadine lustre,” the basher wrote.
Bianca’s fans didn’t let the comment slide as they bombarded the basher with messages saying that Bianca is beautiful, unlike the basher who is ugly inside and out.
They said that the basher should just get lost as they claim that she is not welcome on Bianca’s account. Another fan of Bianca’s also mentioned that Nadine is not the only one who is allowed to wear such outfits.
“basher free na dito, get lost,” one netizen said.
“si nadine lang ba pwedeng magpost ng ganyan 😌” another added.
Some fans also said that the one who made the comparison between the outfits of the Bianca and Nadine was a fool and ugly for having a mindset like that.
They said that the basher was just jealous of Bianca’s looks that’s why she vented out her anger towards the actress. Some people also said that the basher was just seeking for attention.
It can be remembered that Bianca was body-shamed when she posted a photo of herself on her Instagram account without any make-up on except for red lipstick.
Her post was dedicated to the #NationalLipstickDay as well as a promotion of a cosmetic brand. However, people bashed her looks saying that she looked extremely thin and dried out despite her young age.
Meanwhile, her rumored boyfriend Ruru Madrid came to her defense pointing out that people always have something to say that tends to hurt or degrade other people.
I dont know what's wrong with people right now?
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 nag ddown sa atin. Sana wala ng ganun, sana sinusuportahan nalang natin ang isa't isa.
