Chie Filomeno never misses when it comes to letting body-shamers know that it’s her body, her rules.
If you think that celebrities are immune to experiencing body insecurity with all their fame and fortune, think again. It affects all of us, even stars, many of whom have revealed their struggled with how they see their body. Chie Filomeno can relate to this. As confident and empowered Chie is, she’s also been open about dealing with body issues and resorting to fad diets to reach certain standards.
Luckily, she’s long past that phase as she isn’t afraid to embrace how she looks. Still, that hasn’t stopped netizens from trying to drag and criticize the star for what she does with her body. But Chie isn’t afraid to take on the comments and backhanded compliments like the baddie that she is and let people know that she doesn’t have time for toxic mindsets. Here are some of her fiercest clapbacks against body shamers.
WHEN SOMEONE CALLED HER “BUTO-BUTO”
Body-shaming isn’t just reserved for thick and curvy girls being made fun of. Petite and flat-chested women also experience bullying for being too thin or “payatot”. Such is the case when Chie posted photos of herself at the 2018 ABS-CBN Ball on Instagram and was accused by a netizen of editing the photos to make herself look bigger. Chie clapped back against the skinny-shaming and said, “Body shaming is not okay!! It’s never an option! I hope whatever you’re going through now, sana malagpasan mo para maging masaya ka naman at hindi ka na manlait.”
WHEN PEOPLE PAID TO MUCH ATTENTION TO HER CHEST
While Chie looked like a walking angel at the 2019 ABS-CBN Ball while wearing Boom Sason, some people sadly focused their ire on Chie’s corset and how it made her chest look. Taking to X, the actress and model cleared her bashers who had nothing better to do than talk about a woman’s body, especially if it came from other women. “Problemahin niyo problema niyo. Wag boobs ko.” Period queen.
WHEN PEOPLE JUDGED HER FOR WEARING A REVEALING GOWN
Imagine criticizing someone just because of the clothes they wear. We could never. Chie’s confidence in wearing outfits that show off her body is one of the many reasons why people love her. But some people didn’t get the memo as they left comments under a post of a dress she wore to a ball saying that it was too revealing. Someone even suggested that Chie had no respect for herself because of the clothes she wears. News flash, it’s the 21st century, let people wear what they want to wear.

Chie has made it no secret that she’s had plastic surgery before, specifically, a rhinoplasty to correct her nose bridge. And while Chie has all the right to do what she wants with her body, that didn’t stop a netizen from bashing the star for going under the knife. Chie tackled the comment head-on and responded to it on TikTok as she advocated for open-mindedness and sensitivity for a subject that women, and anyone for that matter, shouldn’t feel guilt-tripped for doing. Once again, their body, their rules. Mind your business.
