Saab Magalona didn't mince her words when she called out Abante writer Rey Pumaloy on Twitter for sexualizing her pregnant OOTD during sister Maxene Magalona's bachelorette party over the weekend.
In the article, Rey wrote, "Ang bubbly facial expression ni Saab [at] ang makinis nitong balat na walang stretch marks ay sapat na para maging malinamnam ito sa paningin ng mga lalake lalo 'yung mga may asawa na at dumaan sa ganitong estado nang pagbubuntis ng kanilang misis."
Saab went on a Twitter rant and started off by saying, "GROSS. Women don't post photos para magmukhang 'katakam-takam' o 'malinamnam' para sa mga lalaki!!!"
She then posted screenshots of the tabloid article.
Saab added a statement and said that she believes the writer's intention was to have a clickbait article: "I believe that the writer is not interested in women. I want to think he does not actually view girls as meat. I know his intention was just to write a clickbait article for a market that normalizes this way of thinking. I'm not angry, just sad."
She also shared the photo in question—of her wearing a striped bikini showing off her baby bump—and ended the rant with a solid punch: "For context, here's my 'pregnant unicorn' photo. If you really wanna sexualize this cute twin baby bump, tangina mo na lang."
Rey responded to Saab's tweets in an interview with PEP.ph and was quoted saying, "Ang point ko doon, kung ayaw mong makita ka sa perspective ng isang nakakakita sa ipinost mo sa social media, eh, 'di huwag kang mag-post ng naka-two-piece ka tapos nakalitaw ang tiyan mo, 'di ba? Ang intensiyon ko ay ipakita na kahit buntis siya, sexy pa rin siya sa paningin ng mga nakakakita sa kanya. Sexy pa rin siya sa tingin ng mga kalalakihan, na yummy pa rin siya."
