Ruru Tells Bashers No One (Including Him) Should Tell Bianca What to Do with Her Body
"Laspag," "tuyo," "napabayaan." These are only a few of the many harsh and downright offensive words thrown at Bianca Umali on her latest Instagram post—most of which are too explicit to be published. On Saturday, July 25, Bianca posted a cute selfie of herself to celebrate National Lipstick Day. Absolutely nothing about her photo deserved the kind of body shaming and objectification she received from the thousands of netizens who commented on her post. And her boyfriend, Ruru Madrid, knew it as well.
Chiming in on the comments section, the GMA-7 star addressed the overwhelming amount of lewd comments Bianca received. He said, "I don't know what's wrong with people right now? Parang ang dami laging opinyon ng mga tao. Sa totoo lang, mas masakit na kung sino pa yung mga kababayan o di kaya mga kalahi natin sila pa yung nagdo-down sa atin. Sana wala nang ganun, sana sinusuportahan na lang natin ang isa't isa."
Ruru also replied to several offensive netizens, one of which stood out. According to PEP.ph, Ruru defended Bianca's right to do whatever she wants to do with her body—and he, even as her boyfriend, has no say on the matter.
"Sigurado ka diyan? Brad, katawan niya 'yan, kung gusto niya magpapayat o magpalaki nasa kanya na 'yon, labas na ako dun at dapat ganun ka din. Kesa yung kumikilatis ka ng katawan ng ibang tao kilatisin mong maiigi yung sarili mo, brad. Dami na naghihirap sa mundo ganyan ka pa din. Baguhin mo na ugali mo!"
The post of the netizen has since been deleted on Instagram.
It should be noted that Ruru recently wrote about "treating girls right" in a post he shared on Instagram dated July 18. The photo showed himself taking a mirror selfie while wearing a pink shirt. His caption stated, "Real men wear pink? No. Real men treat girls right."

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.

WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
