Bretman Rock, Manny MUA used as examples of ‘improper grooming for men’
Photos of YouTube personalities and beauty gurus Manny MUA (makeup artist) and Bretman Rock were allegedly used by a local university in a poster as examples of “improper grooming for men.”
A poster on the guidelines on proper grooming for men bearing the name as well as the logo of Leyte Normal University (LNU) is making rounds on social media. Colored and long hair were marked as “inappropriate hairstyles” for men, while sporting full beards, earrings and wearing makeup, as well as donning feminine clothing, were labeled “improper grooming for men.”
INQUIRER.net has already reached out to LNU for comments.
One netizen, @ThePencilPushe1, shared the said poster, tagging Manny via Twitter yesterday, Jan. 16. S/he asked Manny to confirm if the photo of the man in the poster wearing makeup was indeed him.

Apparently, the netizen was not the only one tagging the makeup artist in the poster, as revealed in Manny’s Twitter post yesterday.
“I’ve been tagged in this so much today… yes that’s me,” replied Manny. “Yes, they’re using me as an example of what not to do at school… A school having a problem with a man wearing makeup? Shocking.”

Bretman Rock took to the same platform to address the use of his photo in the poster.
“First of all, my outfit is so cute,” he wrote. “And second of all how will wearing that affect a [student’s] learning, and why that picture I have cuter [looks] lol.”
