Beauty Gonzalez on her Morrissey-inspired ungrammatical post: ‘Tao lang po’
Kapamilya actress Beauty Gonzalez answered netizens who called out her use of image filters and a grammar mistake in Instagram.
Gonzalez has been praised online for her post-birth well-toned body. She has been a fitness inspiration not only to moms but to women of all walks of life. Yet despite her noteworthy efforts, some still could not help but spot negativity.
The actress’ recent Instagram post attracted not only fans but bashers as well.
The post was noticed by a netizen who goes by the handle @rochemsvercp and asked the actress to use “less filter” in her photos because “she’s pretty and there’s no need for it.”
Meanwhile, another netizen by the username @melissagarciareyes noted the actress’ caption and called out her grammar slip. Gonzalez wrote on her caption, “The more you ignore me the closer i get, your wasting your time!”
The netizen mentioned Gonzalez’s use of the pronoun “your” which instead should be “you are (not your)”. She was given an instant “English 101” mini-lecture.
The 26-year-old first-time mom answered her critics with composure. She explained that “people use filters for many reasons, others to mask imperfections, some to enhance, but most like myself do it for fun, to make my feed look a little more interesting.”
She also answered the netizen who noticed her grammar. She acknowledged her shortcoming and very levelheadedly offered an apology for her mistake.
“… [And] please accept my apologies for forgetting the apostrophe between the YOU and RE (You’re) Tao lang po! (I’m only human),” she said.
Beauty Gonzalez is married to art curator Norman Crisologo whom she met through her close friend, sexy actress Ellen Adarna. They exchanged “I do’s” in a simple yet elegant wedding in Tagaytay City earlier this year. The couple is already blessed with one baby daughter, Olivia. JB
