The whole internet had something to say about poor Kylie Padilla's armpits today, March 30. A lot of people bashed her and made fun of her, some took it as a sign of declining beauty, while others wagered that it was because her baby was a boy.
Kylie did not take the comments lying down and responded perfectly to her bashers: “There is such a thing as lighting in pictures, and filters. Maybe I just don't care if my underarm looks dark in this picture. There are more important things in life. I posted this picture knowing that my armpits look dark but I was highlighting the phone. Maybe if you thought twice, you would get that, but I guess that's the first thing you saw. Says more about you than me.”
The controversial star had to leave her stint as lead of Fantaserye Encantadia when she got pregnant with fiance, Aljur Abrenica's baby. So far the road towards giving birth has not been forgiving to her, but good people always seem to speak out on her behalf. This netizen spoke about her own experiences with darkening underarms during pregnancy.
According to netizen MJ Hicban-Gutierrez, even if she was a nurse and she already knew what may take place during pregnancy, she could not help but feel "like a monster" and be depressed as her body was changing in a way she couldn't control. She expressed pity for the Kapuso star, saying that people shouldn't be so judgmental, especially as all of these changes are natural and are just signs that a woman is carrying a baby.
