Saab Magalona Response On Recent Body Shaming Incident.


Saab Magalona Response On Recent Body Shaming Incident. 

December last year, Saab Magalona, daughter of Francis M took her complaint over an article about a photo of her and her sister Maxene wearing two-piece bikini. The malicious article is from tabloid, Abante written by Rey Pumaloy.

Here are some of part of Rey Pumaloy's article titled “Maxene tinalbugan si Saab sa pagpapasexy”:


“Naka-two piece black top at high waist swim panty si Maxene, at kahit medyo conservative ang swimsuit ng aktres katakam-takam pa rin ito sa paningin ng mga kalalakihan.

“Sapat na ang katangiang ito para hindi puwedeng hindi pagpantasyahan at pagnasahan ng mga kalalakihan ang alindog nito.

“Ang bubbly facial expression ni Saab ang makinis nitong balat na walang stretch marks ay sapat na para maging malinamnam ito sa paningin ng mga lalake lalo yung mga may asawa na at dumaan sa ganitong estado nang pagbubuntis ng kanilang misis.

"Sa dalawang sexy photo shot ng magkapatid, mas gusto naming ibigay ang 'sexiness crown' kay Saab dahil hindi siya nagdalawang isip na ipangalandakan ang preggy-sexy figure nito.”








And now in her social media account Saab Magalona revealed that she has been body shamed just recently when someone greeted her with “Ay, naging chubby ka na!”

Read how she responded:


Yesterday somebody greeted me with “Ay, naging chubby ka na!” and it took so much for me not to snap at her. Calmed down and after 5mins I told her, 

“You know, you really shouldn’t tell people — especially pregnant women — that they’ve gotten fat. It’s very mean.” 

I explained to her that we have no choice but to gain weight (recommended 35-45lbs for twin moms like me) for the safety of our babies and we’re already feeling self-conscious about it. I’m glad I controlled myself even with the hormones because I trust that most people don’t intend to be mean. 

They’re just pretty dense and that’s their version of chikahan or bonding. She apologized profusely and even sent me a text message hours later thanking me for educating her about being more sensitive. I hope God can give me more patience not to bite people’s heads off hehe 🙏🏻

EDIT: I just want to clarify that she said it with a frown and with a disappointed tone. Mind you, she’s the one who told me 

“sana ganyan ka lang, wag ka nang tumaba” 

when I first met her and she learned of my pregnancy about 3 months ago.😅

She got her followers support:

ruthiemaria: Dang, glad u told her about how u felt. There's also nothing inherently wrong with being fat and gaining weight! Ugly and fat are not interchangeable. You are beautiful, gurl, no matter the weight 💖 even more beautiful is you unselfishly choosing to carry and bring in two amazing beings into this world! You hella strong! 🙌💪💅✨💜

pambulous13: Your body shape doesn’t matter as long as you and your babies are healthy. 😘 Just eat and do what you want. It’s your body after all. God bless you and your babies always @saabmagalona 😘😍 Ps: You’re still beautiful no matter what. ❤️❤️
