As we all know, body hair is normal, and deciding whether to remove it or not is a personal choice! Still, some people—including celebs—get shamed for revealing unshaven parts of their bodies. Actress Xyriel Manabat is no exception, as she recently clapped back at a netizen who seemingly bashed her for having armpit hair.
"May hair yung armpit hahaha," a netizen pointed out in a now-deleted comment on Xyriel's photo. In her post, the 19-year-old wore a sleeveless tank top while showing off her flawless makeup look for the Star Magic Hot Summer Party 2023.
Keeping it real, Xyriel responded: "Uhmm coz tao ako? So what about it? [Laughing emoji]"
This isn't the first time Xyriel got an *inappropriate* comment about her body.
In Star Magic's latest YouTube entry, the Dirty Linen star reacted to netizens' remarks about her, one of which was about her chest. It read: "Sobrang laki naman ng boobs mo! Pabawas mo 'yan, baka mabastos ka!"
"Minsan yung iba pong kino-commentan natin ng ganito, hindi po kasi kasing-tibay ng loob ko, hindi po kasing lakas ng loob ko para lagpasan," she replied. "Pwede po 'wag niyo po ako manduhan sa katawan ko, opo. Tignan niyo na lang, scroll niyo na lang, huwag na po kayo mag-comment hangga't maaari."
"Hindi po body type ng tao ang mag-aadjust kung hindi yung utak po natin," she stressed, and we couldn't agreee more! Well said, Xyriel!
