1. When she proudly stated that she likes her body yet won’t allow unsolicited comments to pass

Nadine told the Wake Up With Jim & Saab podcast the reason why she just won't tolerate unsolicited comments. Although she said that she likes her body now and is normally unfazed by hate comments, she expressed her concern for those who aren't confident yet in their skin. "It's just that, how would, for example, a girl who's younger like me and who's not really confident and still figuring out herself reads that comment. How do you think she would feel?" she said.

Nadine added, "It's not that I like proving a point. It's just that, I like, in a way, answering so that people will stop doing this to others. I like shutting them down because I don't want other people to feel na 'Ah nababash siya. What if this happens to me?' Even if it's directed to me, I'm sure that does something to people who read those comments."

"I don't understand why people see it as a bad thing, and people use it against people who actually do it [...] you can't really hate on a person who wants to improve how they look and wants to look good," she told Dr. Aivee. "I mean, people are always bashing that person and saying, 'Ay retokada!' Why is it a bad thing? It shouldn't be a bad thing. If anything, it shouldn't be your business because they wanted to do it—it's their body."
