Dionne Monsanto to lawyer who body-shamed Angel Locsin: ‘Mura lang po salamin’
Dionne Monsanto came to Angel Locsin’s defense after a lawyer directed body-shaming remarks at her.
Atty. Ferdinand Topacio commented on Locsin’s weight in a tweet last July 20, which was met with criticism from Twitter users, as well as talent manager Ogie Diaz and recently, Monsanto.
Monsanto, who starred with Locsin in ABS-CBN’s “Lobo” in 2008, took a jab at the lawyer yesterday, July 26 in a Facebook post.
Sharing a photo of his statement, she said, “Mura lang po salamin sa Shopee, at free delivery pa. Bili na rin po kayo ng leeg at bra.”
“Mamaya na po sana tayo mangutya ng ganyan kung 6 footer na tayo at may 6-pack abs. Mmmkay.”
(A mirror in Shopee is cheap and there’s free delivery too. Buy a neck and a bra too. Let’s keep that mocking for later when we are already 6-footers and have six-pack abs. Okay.)

She added in the comments section, “Sorry guys, di dapat tayo nangbo-body shame, pero sobrang nakakagalit ‘tong mga kuda niya.”
(Sorry guys, we should not body shame, but his comments are so infuriating.)
“Ang bait ni Angel. Sobra. (Angel is so kind. Very much so.) She doesn’t deserve to be spoken of the way this creature did. #ProtectAngelLocsin”
Diaz, meanwhile, wondered if Topacio’s “misconduct” was acceptable to the Integrated Bar of the Philippines and urged the organization of lawyers to castigate him. JB
