Rey Valera earns ire of netizens with body-shaming 'advice' to 'Tawag ng Tanghalan' contestant
Netizens have come to the defense of Christelle Tiquis, a contestant on "Tawag Ng Tanghalan sa It's Showtime" who received a not-so-pleasant remark from veteran musician Rey Valera.

In yesterday's (January 10) episode of "It's Showtime," Rey who sits as the competition's head judge, offered an advice to Christelle in relation to her weight and her relationship with her boyfriend.

He said, “Walang kinalaman sa pagkanta, iha, kundi sa relasyon mo lang. Nakita ko 'yung picture mo nung araw, sexy ka. Ang advice ko sa 'yo, huwag kang magpapataba, iha."

He continued, "Alam mo kung bakit? Tanungin mo ako kung bakit. Kasi kapag ganyan ka kataba, at ganyan ka kalaki, at hinahalikan ka ng dyowa mo, nagkakawanggawa lang 'yun. Okay? Good luck."

The music icon's remarks have earned him the ire of netizens, who did not hold back on hitting him on Twitter.
