Melissa Ricks hits back at one netizen who left a body shaming comment on her latest Instagram post.
On Instagram last October 3, the actress shared a photo from her recent Palawan trip. In the caption, Melissa wrote, "During one of the hardest times in my life someone told me 'the best days are still ahead of you.' It was exactly what I needed to hear at that time, I broke down in tears, so I want you to hear it too. 'Your best days are still ahead of you.' Things didn't get better right away, but I got stronger. And things started falling into place."
In the comments, one netizen left a rude comment about her weight.
Melissa immediately replied to the netizen, saying that mom shaming is not okay. She then encouraged the netizen to be more positive and more encouraging to fellow women instead of bringing them down.
The actress also acknowledged how mothers have different ways of handling their post-pregnancy bodies.
Nonetheless, Melissa seems very happy right now, and is still in the process of learning to love herself.
Prior to her showbiz hiatus, Melissa starred in the 2010 film "Paano Na Kaya" alongside Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson.
She is now a hands-on mom to her four year-old daughter Kiera Kelly with ex-boyfriend Charles Togezaki.
