Bianca Gonzales' recent tweets created buzz on social media.
KAMI learned that it is an empowering note for her fellow 'morena' people.
She also expressed her disapproval towards some whitening brands who make people with brown skin, looks 'kaawa aawa' (piteous).
"Just a note from a Filipina with brown skin since birth: There is no problem AT ALL sa mga gustong magpaputi. The problem is when whitening brands make us look "kaawa awa" dahil lang maitim kami. Kasi, hindi po kami kawawa, maganda ang kulay namin."
She also mentioned some 'morena' celebrities who she admires for being proud of their skin color.
"I grew up loving my brown skin because of beautiful women like Angel Aquino and Tweetie de Leon who proudly flaunted their brown skin. I looked up to them. I did not need to compare myself to fair skinned girls. It need not be a "battle" of maitim versus maputi."
"I now have two daughters, and both of them are morena. When they grow up, choice nila kung magpapa-tan or magpapaputi sila. But what I will teach them is that being brown is not something "shameful", and being brown is not something that makes them less beautiful than others."
Her tweets garnered lots of comments from netizens. Most of them agreed with the Kapamilya star.
