On March 8, singer Leila Alcasid tweeted, “The hot guy falling for [a] chubby/plain girl storyline is way too overdone. Attraction is subjective and should not be reduced to physical attributes alone. How sucky!!!!!!!”

The tweet, already deleted, caught some backlash. User @kLowiiiii_ replied, “Sorry but I’m amazed at how intellectual and righteous you want to sound with this tweet and yet also downright and equally hypocritical. It’s a story of REAL people—not a made up ‘storyline.’ Calling people’s stories “sucky” is a little bit offensive don’t you think?”

@kLowiiiii_ is referring to the Maalaala Mo Kaya episode titled “Tomorrow,” which stars Elisse Joson, who plays a “chubby girl” that falls for a “hot guy” played by Kit Thompson.

Leila replied, “I’m not criticizing the episode nor the people involved since I’m aware it is based on a real story. Rather, the idea that it’s even surprising for someone to go for a ‘chubby’ person, when the physical ideals we attach to people are subjective anyway.”

She further clarified, “This idea is also what I was referring to when I used the word sucky, not any person in particular :) I’m certainly not trying to sound intellectual or righteous because this is simply my opinion, but I apologize for voicing it and offending anyone. Hope you can understand!! :)”
