Janine Gutierrez refused to be put down by a basher telling her that she looks gay.
This had to do with Janine's Instagram post of her looking all glam during the recent press conference for GMA-7's primetime telefantasya Victor Magtanggol where she is cast as the love interest of lead star Alden Richards.
While a number of netizens complimented Janine for her gorgeous looks, an anonymous Instagram user turned nasty on Janine and told her, "Mukha ka na pong bakla."
Janine did not take the basher's nasty comment sitting down and said that calling her "bakla" is not demeaning at all for she has high regard for the LGBT community.
She replied, "Ang compliment! Ang gaganda nilaaaaa! Mas maganda pa sila sakin!"
Janine happens to have close friends from the LGBT community and even joined the Pride Month celebration at Marikina Sports Center in June.
At any rate, Janine previously said that she is unfazed by bashers name-calling her on social media since she has learned how to handle gossip growing up as a daughter of her celebrity parents Lotlot de Leon and Ramon Christopher "Monching" Gutierrez.
"Dahil n'ung naghiwalay din yung mga magulang ko, andami ko ring narinig [na] alam ko hindi totoo," said Janine in an interview with PEP.ph at the presscon of Victor Magtanggol on July 23.
She continued, "So ngayon na nandito ako, alam ko na kapag may sinasabi tungkol sa akin, hindi porke't sinabi ng ibang tao, ibig sabihin totoo."
Janine even laughed off being called a "starlet" by haters who disapproved of her team up with Alden.
"Gusto ko na nga magpagawa ng t-shirt na nakalagay 'starlet,' eh! Hahaha!"
