Fact: No one deserves to get shamed for wearing clothes that many would deem "revealing" or "sexy." Even local celebrities have echoed this statement countless times, having encountered many rude bashers in the industry.

For instance, Barbie Imperial recently responded to an online basher who shamed her for wearing a bikini. While reading mean comments in her latest vlog, she came across a slut-shamer who claimed that her bikini photo deserved to be edited in a lewd manner.

"Nagpakita kang katawan mo naka-swimsuit. May nag-photoshop pinahubad ka. Pareho din nag-pabastos [ka lang] sa sarili mo. In the first place [dapat] di ka na nag-post," part of the comment said. Yikes!

Like the empowered queen she is, Barbie confidently corrected the netizen for objectifying her body. "Parang in short sinabi niya na ginusto ko daw kaya na-photoshop ng hubad 'yung katawan ko. Wala kang [dapat]-alam kung ano gusto kong suotin, okay? Kasi hindi naman ikaw bumili ng swimsuit ko at hindi rin naman ikaw ang nag-picture sa'kin," she said.

She also insisted that modesty should never define her dignity: "Second, kahit anong suot ng babae, hindi dapat binabastos 'yung babae. For me, if ganito 'yung suot ko, kung sexy 'yung pananamit ko, hindi naman noon dine-define 'yung pagkatao ko." We love her progressive thinking!

Afterwards, she encountered a similar comment that asked her to be "a little more conservative." Again, Barbie stood by her beliefs and explained her side without losing her cool.

"I'll respect your opinion but for me kasi, this is my body. It's not like ginagawa ko siya for papansin," she clarified, adding that flaunting her figure is simply a form of self-love for her.

"Love ko 'yung body ko eh, pinaghirapan ko 'to sa gym. So parang ang sarap kasi sa feeling and nakaka-boost din ng self-esteem 'pag nakikita mo na okay 'yung katawan mo, gusto mo 'yung katawan mo, diba?" she concluded.

We couldn't have said it better, Barbie! Women deserve to wear what they want, period.
