“For those who are like me, never be ashamed of where you came from and your story! Continue to live your life because this is [100] percent yours! Love those who truly love you!” she said. “Oh and please to those who keep on discriminating ADOPTED kids, let go of the bigotry. It’s so unbecoming of a supposed ‘human being’!”

De Leon’s post came a few days after she responded to a netizen who commented about her relationship with her adoptive mother veteran actress Nora Aunor, and de Leon’s alleged hardhearted attitude towards Aunor. De Leon’s adoptive father is veteran actor Christopher de Leon, who adopted her with Aunor when the two were still a couple.

As per reports, her siblings Ian, Matet, Kenneth and Kiko organized a late Christmas party for their mother, but Lotlot did not attend the gathering. JB
