Angel Locsin Body-shamed in DepEd Module, Angelica Panganiban Reacts
ANGEL LOCSIN – Actress Angelica Panganiban defended Angel Locsin on the body-shaming Department of Education (DepEd) Mimaropa module.
Last week, photos of the music, arts, physical education, and health (MAPEH) module from the Department of Education (DepEd) Occidental Mindoro went viral on all social media sites. It seemed that the agency used Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin in describing an “obese person.”
“Angel Locsin is an obese person. She, together with Coco Martin eats fatty and sweet food in Mang Inasal fast food restaurant most of the time. In her house, she always watching television and does not have any physical activities.”
DepEd’s module asked students what would happen to Angel Locsin if she “continues her lifestyle.”
Fans and supporters of Angel Locsin couldn’t help but react to the issue. They noted body-shaming falls under bullying. Note that this is not the first time Angel was body-shamed.
Last year, she defended herself from people critical of her weight gain. “Anong klaseng person ka para magawa mo ‘yon? Perfect ka? Sobrang perfect mo?”
Rappler shared the screenshot of the module on its Instagram Page. Angel Locsin’s fellow actress Angelica Panganiban reacted to it.
Angelica defended Angel on the body-shaming DepEd module. In the comment section of the post, she wrote, “I don’t think nakaupo lang si angel sa bahay niya at nanonood ng tv. Busyng busy po siya tumulong sa mga nasalanta. Bakit hindi kayo dun mag focus? Sa kabutihan ng isang tao, lalo na ng kalooban niya.”
Kapamilya singer-songwriter Moira dela Torre also commented on the post. She called out DepEd for the module that body-shamed Angel Locsin.
“Hi, DepEd. Please stop teaching children how to judge people and instead, teach empathy and compassion. I, myself, am a victim of body shaming and my weight is what it is because of a medical condition and not at all caused by eating fatty food or sitting on the couch all day. It also isn’t too late to learn more about kindness, like how Ate Angel advocates, so we can pass on good moral values to children,” she wrote.
