Karla Estrada drew the ire of netizens after her statement on women being responsible for what they wear in social media photos during an episode of Magandang Buhay!

Netizens were not happy with the recent statement of Karla Estrada on the October 13 edition of the morning talk show Magandang Buhay regarding women and what they should wear when posting photos on social media.

It was in that episode when Karla asked guest Xyriel Manabat about her photos that went viral last September, wherein netizens were surprised about her transformation from being the young child star they knew to a blossoming young woman. 

It could be recalled that some netizens made vulgar comments about her current figure, in which some people were quick to defend the 100 Days To Heaven star.

“Hindi po kasi namin in-expect na mag-va-viral,” Xyriel told hosts Karla, Jolina Magdangal, and Melai Cantiveros. “Kasi po normal shoot shoot lang po, picture picture, ganyan. Nagpost lang kami.”

Xyriel pointed out her outfit at the time of the shoot, which was flowy shorts and a top with sleeves.

“Wala po akong pinapakitang skin kasi hindi pa po ready. Hindi naman po sa bawal o ano, hindi lang po ako ready pa,” she explained. “Tas nagulat po ako bakit ganun po ’yong ano nila. Parang may double standard po sila na kapag ibang tao, kahit mas bata po sa’kin, wala po silang pakialam, pero ’pag iba ’yong type ng katawan, parang nagkaka-double standard po sila.”

Jolina surmised that people are not just used to seeing the former child star they once knew bloom into a growing girl. However, Melai said it should not be a reason to make vulgar comments about a woman’s figure.

“Wala namang may karapatan magsabi ng hindi maganda. Nandiyadiyan talaga kasi sila. Ang daming vultures na nag-aabang, sa social media, so be very careful din,” Karla interjected.

The singer-actress added that she does not want anyone to have a say about her daughters’ body. However, her next statement made netizens call her out on social media.

“Kasi kahit naman balot ’yan, eh. Basta’t kung gusto mabastos ng lalaki na ’yan, ’di ba? So, sabi ko [sa mga anak ko], kung gusto niyo mag-post, just be responsible also doon sa post niyo. Parang huwag ka na mag-initiate ng parang...oh, ano? ’Di ba ’yong ganun?” Karla said.

“But, of course, minsan, hindi naman ganun ’yong dahilan,” she added.

Netizens on Twitter did not take too kindly to what Karla said about women, slamming the television host for her “backward mentality” and asking the people behind Magandang Buhay to educate her.
