Angelica Panganiban recently came to the defense of her close friend and former co-star Angel Locsin after an Occidental Mindoro education module for distance learning made rounds on social media for body-shaming Angel.


"I don't think nakaupo lang si Angel sa bahay niya at nanonood ng tv. Busyng busy (sic) po siya tumulong sa mga nasalanta. Bakit hindi kayo dun mag focus? Sa kabutihan ng isang tao, lalo na ng kalooban niya," she commented on news website Rappler's Instagram post.

"Angel Locsin is an obese person. She, together with Coco Martin eats fatty and sweet food in Mang Inasal fast food restaurant most of the time. In her house, she always watching television (sic) and does not have any physical activities."

The example goes on to ask what would happen to Angel if she "continues her lifestyle."

After much backlash from netizens, DepEd issued a statement regarding the issue. "Upon initial investigation, this office found out that the said material is not contained in the self-learning module (SLM) developed and quality assured by the DepEd Central Office. The said material is a teacher-made assessment for a Grade 10 MAPEH class purposely to measure specific competencies of the learning area."

Angel answered back on Instagram: "What bothers me most is apart from teaching incorrect grammar to the students, DepEd seems unaffected that the said teacher is teaching bad conduct and sowing discrimination among the children. Anong mangyayare sa future kung ang mga kabataan ay tinuturuan ng pambabastos at pangungutya sa kapwa?"

"This is the more relevant issue deped (sic), that you should be held accountable and must correct. Sa inyo naka salalay ang pag asa ng ating milyon milyong kabataan."

This is the latest addition in a string of mishaps in DepEd modules. Netizens have spotted grammar mistakes and wrong solutions for math problems. Gender stereotypes were also commonly reinforced in worksheets.
