The recently concluded ABS-CBN Ball saw netizens give hilariously honest reviews of their fave celebs’ outfits for the night. And while most of them were in good fun, some just took it a little bit too far.
Case in point: Chienna Filomeno
The 22-year-old received a lot of body-shaming comments, which poked fun at her supposedly ‘flat-chested’ look.
People were quick to defend the actress, with some asking: So what if she doesn’t have big boobs?
Why is being flat such a big deal? Lol. For sure we’ve got bigger brains than you judgers.

Pag flat chested, ppl make fun when you wear plunging tops bc you're "trying too hard". Pag big boobs, you're being told to cover them up. Laswa tingnan. Plunging tops make you look like a porn star.
WHY SHOULD YOUR OPINION MATTER ON HOW MY BOOBS LOOK LIKE???!!!! https://t.co/5ehU0T7usK

Filipino netizens are bashing Chienna Filomeno over nothing. I mean, look at her! I personally think she has one of the best faces and bodies in our generation. She put in a lot of efforts into having that body, and you guys are just body shaming her TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELVES pic.twitter.com/JQAlTiJt7r

The Kapamilya star shared her disdain for society’s unreasonable body standards and how body shaming is never ok.
She ended with the caption:
‘Every body is beautiful! We are beautiful! No body is a tragedy. And don’t ever let anyone shame you for being you.’
