Kris Bernal took to social media to share her thoughts on the prevalence of body-shaming online.
KAMI learned that Kris shared about her experiences of getting body-shamed on a daily basis.
Fortunately, the actress was able to respond to her bashers with kindness by reminding herself that she is beautiful whatever her figure looks like.
She then urged the people who also experience body-shaming to raise awareness about the issue so that this kind of bullying will be minimized.
The Kapuso star also reminded her followers that they are beautiful whatever they look like since they were created by God.
“At one time or another, you might have experienced body shaming the same way that I did. Waking up every day to people commenting on my body wasn’t easy at all. Thankfully, I am pretty headstrong and kept channeling all this negativity into my work. I would look myself in the mirror, smile, and say ‘Always choose kindness. You are beautiful.’
“Literally, ‘NO BODY’ is perfect and people must always be reminded of that. If you are also a victim of body shaming, I understand you and let’s make sure to not tolerate it. Let’s educate people on what is right. People are skinny, curvy, tall, short, petite, large, and that’s just the reality of things! You are beautiful whatever your shape is because you are God’s creation. When you know your worth and value from God, no one can already make you feel worthless, less valuable, or unloved,” Kris said on Instagram.
Kris Bernal is a Filipina actress who rose to prominence when she became a finalist on the StarStruck talent competition. She also had roles on Boys Nxt Door, SOP, and Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan.
In a previous report by KAMI, Kris uploaded an emotional episode of her vlog on YouTube. The actress shed tears because of the mean insults she received from her bashers. She revealed that her bashers severely body-shamed her, calling her “anorexic” and “bulimic.” It turned out that the reason she is always slim and does not gain too much weight is that she is an ectomorph.
In another emotional story, Kris Bernal admitted to undergoing depression after GMA-7 did not renew her exclusive contract. The 31-year-old star admitted to feeling a lot of anxiety, although she did not show this on social media anymore.
