Cai Cortez to Response to Bashers Criticizing Plus Size Body in Humorous Way
Model-actress Cai Cortez says she will respond to body-shaming bashers’ remarks criticizing her plus-size body in a humorous way.
In an interview with Pokwang, Ria, and Pauleen in TV5’s ChikaBesh, Cai Cortez just laughs at the bashers who body shaming her because of her weight Cai happily said she grew up in a home where being “overweight” was not considered a negative habit.
The actress recognizes this kind of upbringing came from her parents Rez and Candy Cortez. “Siguro kasi iyong mga role model ko, iyong tatay ko, laging nilalaro ang tiyan ni mommy. Pinaggigilan niya. Gusto niya,” Cai said in her guesting.
“Doon pa lang, with the confidence of my mom and the love that I see from my dad to my mom, nakikita kong you don’t have to settle for someone na sasabihin, ‘Uy, alam mo, kung papayat ka, liligawan kita, Ang mga taong ganoon is not meant for you,” she added.
Cai shared that she has experienced being bullied and insulted by bashers. However, she notices that these naysayers gradually disappear over time.
But if a fierce statement about his weight comes to her and bashers insult her again because of her weight, Cai said she is willing to handle it in a humorous way.
“Siguro kasi kapag sinasabing mataba ako, gusto kong sabihin, ‘Day, may salamin din kami. Alam ko mataba ako, oo,’ the actress said.
Cai became serious because she said people need to stop humiliating others about their weight with respect to worrying about their health. Cai pointed out that she still deals with insecurities about herself, but she chooses to ignore them.
“Other people naman, kunwari they mask their bulliying by being, ‘Ay, ano, concerned ako sa iyo kasi unhealthy magiging mataba.’ Wala kang alam sa buhay ko para sabihing unhealthy ako o hindi,” the actress remarks.
“Of course, may insecurities pa rin minsan. Hindi mo na matatanggal sa tao iyan. Pero bakit mo dadalhin iyon sa araw-araw at oras na bigay sa iyo ng Diyos? She added.
