Solenn Heussaff took to Instagram and posted an invitation to visit her own 3D solo exhibit, which she said was three years in the making.
She was mixing acrylic paintings and her newfound love for rug designing.
The actress titled her exhibit as "KUNDIMAN" and she said that it was an expression of her love, appreciation and hope for the country and for the people.
The photo, however, did not sit well with a number of netizens, wherein they said that it was insensitive for Solenn.
One netizen said, "The whole set-up doesn’t sit well with me. It seems like the backdrop was there to cover the reality of poverty. idk. It feels mockery to me. I hope I’m wrong tho."
Another said, "You're a great artist but this photo was done in poor taste. Using poverty to promote your art is very insensitive. Rich people and their poverty pórn..."
Solenn defended herself and clapped back at the series of comments that were hurled at her.
"Sorry this is not my intention at all. If this was shot in the middle of BGC then you would say I live in a bubble. I love my country and everything that makes it what it is. Maybe when you see the full exhibit you will understand what I’m trying to bring to light," said the actress.
One netizen stated that she deleted negative comments, and Solenn responded that she was simply getting rid of toxic people.
"Because negativity is toxic. People who are quick to judge are toxic. That’s what happened to the world when social media became too easy to use," said Solenn.
