From raising funds for mass testing to setting up sleeping tents for health workers, Angel Locsin has proven time and again, amidst the COVID-19 crisis, that she’s a real life Darna. This morning, the actress continues to inspire as new photos of her have gone viral on social media.
While a few netizens—who probably have nothing better to do—left negative comments pertaining to Angel’s weight, messages of self-love and body positivity flooded both Facebook and Twitter in droves. “Angel Locsin has nothing to prove. She is two-time FHM Philippines’ sexiest woman and our real-life Darna,” captioned one FB page above Angel’s photos.
Currently, the actress is also a top trending topic on Twitter as more netizens express their admiration, not just for Angel’s confidence, but for the work she’s done so far in aiding the nation’s coronavirus response. Thankfully, they’re drowning out the few nasty nasysayers too. "Ms. Angel Locsin is more than what you see outside. She lives purposefully. She goes out to help people in pain. She's more attractive because of that. I stan the real angel,” one tweet read.

In January 2019, Angel addressed social media trolls criticizing her weight in an interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda. When asked by the host if bashers leaving unwanted comments on her photos still affect her, Angel responded, “May mga bagay kasi na hindi mo dapat gawin sa kapwa mo. Kung ang taong ito comfortable siya sa ginagawa niyang ‘yan, ayaw ko mag-deal sa mga ganu’ng klaseng tao. Kasi sad ang life niya.” The actress continues, “Kasi ako, wala akong problema. Bakit ikaw ang dami mong issue? Ako nga, walang issue, eh. Katawan ko ‘to, ako ‘to, sarili ko ‘to. Ikaw, okay ka ba?”
Well said, Angel! You keep doing you!
