Jennylyn Mercado airs her frustration on Twitter over people who would normally comment on the physical looks of an individual the moment that they meet.
The usual comment "uy tumaba ka" does not sound nice and it is rude, said Jen.
Aside from the "toxic" behavior, she also appealed for people to simply discontinue the trait.
"Can we discontinue this toxic Filipino trait na tuwing nagkikita ang hilig mag komento tungkol sa physical looks ng iba tulad ng -
“uy tumaba ka”
It’s not okay. First of all it’s rude, second it may trigger some people na may Ed.
Here are some of the comments from netizens:
"I stopped going to major family occasions because of this. My aunts’ favorite question is, “o ano, mahirap ka pa rin?” Closely followed by, “magpapayat ka na. ok lang na pangit basta sexy.” It’s easier to isolate myself from them than to pretend their words don’t hurt."
"Or maybe yung "Bat wala ka pang anak?" Kung pwede lang sabihin na. Hello? We're trying, we're doing everything just to have one at least. But you can't tell your story to everyone naman. Nakakapressure lang. Nakakastress na! They don't know the struggle kaya."
"Sa totoo lang ang toxic ng trait ntin na ito, dito sa germany so far never kong na experience macommentan about my size, minsan parang sila pa na ooffend pag sinasabi kong mataba ako, like hindi nman daw ako mataba, pero pag vcall ako sa pinas puro size ko comment ."
