Despite the growing body-positivity movement, there are still those who continue to bash other people and impose their standards of beauty on others.

Celebrities are often the targets of these internet "negatrons" because of their high visibility on TV, movies and social media, where they are often mercilessly shamed—usually for the most frivolous reasons.

It's interesting to note that compared to their male counterparts, female celebrities or personalities seem to be more prone to body shaming.

For instance, some are being shamed for being too fat or too skinny, while a few others are ridiculed for their skin color, or for having a below-average bust size.

Fortunately, more and more celebrities have been pushing for body positivity and have been challenging societal views on the "ideal" body.

Here are 10 Pinay "flat and proud" celebrities who have embraced their "imperfections."

"Siguro, natuwa lang ako sa mga comments [that show that now], they are more open about it. They’re more proud of it.
