ANGEL Locsin got bashed when photos of her showing her gaining so much excess weight appeared on various social media platforms. Some folks defended her saying they don’t care as everyone knows she has a heart of gold always ready to help the needy, even calling her the real Darna.
As one avid supporter wrote: “Angel Locsin is the real-life Darna, hindi niya kailangan ng papuri dahil ang mas importante sa kanya ay ang makatulong sa kapwa.”
Some nasty bashers then posted her old photo with her sporting her shapely figure when she did “Darna” on GMA-7 15 years ago, with the caption, “Lipad, Darna, Lipad”. Then they posted a graphic photo illustration of her as a fat Darna with no waistline, saying “Lapad, Darna, Lapad”.
Angel herself chose not to react to the comments about her missing waistline and her fans say it’s the best reaction to all the body shaming she got: “Deadma na lang.” A fan even said she should not be blamed at all since her fiance, Neil Arce, owns the Arce Ice Cream brand and you cannot fault her if she’s eating a lot of it to support her boyfriend’s family business. But she added: “Sana lang, magpapayat siya sana bago dumating ang araw ng kasal nila ni Mr. Arce para magkasya siya sa kanyang wedding gown.”
We heard the wedding is set this coming December and Angel wants it to be very simple. She’s not even thinking of wearing a very expensive gown. A friend of hers said “okay na nga sa kanya ang off the rack kasi minsan lang naman daw niya gagamitin.” It’s said she’s looking at some Vera Wang and Rosa Clara creations.
