Bianca Gonzalez unfazed by bullies calling her 'negra'

"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," wrote Bianca Gonzalez on her Instagram today, April 27. Despite the criticisms, the 33-year-old TV host can't be any happier with her family life with husband JC Intal and their baby Lucia.


Bianca Gonzalez refused to back down from 'bullies' calling her “negra.”

Even her six-month-old daughter, Lucia Intal, was not spared from such malicious name-calling.

For the record, the 33-year-old TV host reiterated that she has long overcome her insecurity about her skin color.

To prove her point, proudly posted a picture of her 10-year-old self, in response to haters who bully her about being negra to this day.  

Bianca wrote in the caption of her Instagram post today, April 27, “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.”

Now happily married to her cager husband JC Intal, Bianca also advised fellow morenas not to be swayed by the wrong notion that beauty is all about having fairer skin.

“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.”

Despite the barrage of criticisms about her physical attributes, Bianca said that she will always be a proud morena.

“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.
