A basher got into the nerves of Kapamilya star Bianca Gonzalez after calling her first born “negra.”
Bianca recently posted a photo of her daughter Lucia on Instagram. The actress proudly shared to her fans that her first baby with JC Intal has turned 6 months and has started eating solid food.
An Instagram user with a handle @joan132132 called baby Lucia “panget” and “negra.”

The offensive comment made Bianca raise her thoughts. She called out the basher and said that there’s nothing wrong with the complexion of her daughter and noted that it’s the color of Filipino skin.
“Magbago? Walang akong planong paputiin ang anak namin kung morena talaga sya paglaki nya. Bakit ba akala ng tao insulto sakin ang pagiging morena? It’s a compliment. It’s the color of Filipino skin.”
After the incident, Bianca posted a throwback photo of her 10-year-old self on Facebook and made a statement addressed to the bullies.
“10-year-old-me to bullies calling me “negra” be like??..?? Fast forward to me in my 30s, and haters still bully me “negra”. Na-insecure din ako nung bata ako, until I discovered my talents and built real friendships and realized skin color doesn’t matter. The past few days have been so eye-opening, to find out that so many people are still bullied for being maitim. 2016 na, huy! Naniniwala ka pa rin ba na “mas maganda” ang maputi kaysa sa maitim? Pinoy tayo, kayumanggi ang kulay natin, be proud of it! To any young Pinoy reading this, huwag na huwag ma-pressure na magpaputi dahil hindi mo kailangan yan, maganda ang kulay mo. To parents, siblings, best friends, special someones of anyone being bullied for being dark, reassure them that their color is beautiful and they need not be fairer to be appreciated. Whether you’re born with dark or fair skin, embrace your color and be proud of it. Wala sa kulay ng balat yung halaga mo bilang tao; nasa pakikisama mo at kung paano mo ibinabahagi yung talents mo na mahalaga. Thank you to everyone who shared their thoughts and comments, nakakatuwa na madaming #proudmorena!!!!”
