What do Iza Calzado, Ashley Graham, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Jessy Mendiola, Kylie Padilla, Solenn Heussaff, and Sarah Lahbati have in common? They're victims of body shaming online, and they've used their celebrity status to say NO, MY SELF-WORTH ISN'T TIED TO HOW I LOOK.
In Iza Calzado's recent Instagram pic from her Thailand vacay with her fiance Ben Wintle and his family, she posed in a black maillot while holding a coconut drink. She captioned it, "Positive vibes only," but the comments that followed were the complete opposite.
Iza expertly replied to the most horrible bashers with the best (and most honest) clap backs that turned around the negativity and led people to share their own stories of body love and good vibes. Read some of them below, and take down notes for the next time you wanna be sassy and classy AF.
Fellow celebs stayed true to the actress' call for positivity in her caption:
And here are empowering replies from fans and friends spreading the love:
When a certain commenter (post has been deleted) asked, "Bakit bumagsak po yata ang body niyo?" Iza replied:
"The answer is simple. Everything you've seen before [was] always Photoshopped and enhanced to make me look perfect. I'm trying to give you a less fake version of myself. So this is me, enjoying and living life giving you a taste of the real me hence the caption."
Wise words from Miss Iza Calzado.
