'Women are beautiful whatever size': Moira Dela Torre calls out heckler
MANILA, Philippines – Moira Dela Torre chose to stay positive even as she called out a body-shamer who shouted rude comments at her from the audience as she performed in Marikina on December 29.
On Twitter, the singer addressed the “rude kuya” who apparently shouted “ang taba mo, laki mo Moira, panget, taba (you’re fat, you’re huge, ugly fat Moira)” at her while she was performing.
“I was so tempted to look at you and give you a piece of my mind. But I didn’t want anyone feeling how you made me feel. Even you,” she wrote on Twitter.

“Women are beautiful whatever size and may I be the last person you disrespect like that. May you learn to love yourself enough that you won’t need to bring people down just to feel ‘funny’ or important,” she said. (READ: 6 stars who DGAF about looking ‘perfect’).
