Trending sa social media ngayon ang blogger na si Franco Mabanta, na siya ring social media strategist ng dating senador na si Bongbong Marcos.
Nag-ugat ito sa “pro fat-shaming” post niya sa Facebook noong April 8, 2018. Katabi niya sa larawan ng kanyang post ang kaibigang si Thistle Guevara, na naka-two piece bikini.
Ayon kay Franco, “100 percent” daw siyang pabor sa fat-shaming sa social media upang mas ma-challenge ang mga taong walang disiplina sa pagkain na itigil na ang “bad food habits.”
Sabi niya, “After long and thorough thought, I've decided that I'm 100% in favor of fat-shaming. I think the world would be a better place if all these weak minds that are captive to their bad food habits were constantly told to get off their fucking couches and stop little bitches."
Pagpapatuloy pa niya, marami na raw available sa internet na mga paraan kung paano mag-diet at mag-exercise upang maiwasan ang paglaki ng pangangatawan at pagbigat ng timbang.
Dagdag pa niya, “Nothing motivates people to get into shape like insecurity. Not vanity, not health, not personal records, not clinical narcissism—NOTHING.
“Also, painstakingly sick of 2018 political correctness and all this 'I'm offended' bullshit.
“And come on. The internet has provided us all with a seemingly endless array of tired-and-tested diets and literally thousands of different kinds of exercises.
“With all these data at your fingertips, choosing to not even try is tantamount to obscene levels of laziness and/or stupidity.
“You got one body. Take care of it.”
Umani ng negatibong reaksiyon ang post ni Franco. Ang weight problem kasi ay hindi lamang dahil sa "laziness" o kawalan ng disiplina sa pagkain.
Narito ang ilang comments sa Twitter:
So, Franco Mabanta's idea of a summer shoutout is a photo of him posing with a size 0 model and encouraging fat shaming by clumping the various reasons why people are fat (chronic medical reasons, depression, injury, etc) under "weak mindedness" Somebody castrate him already. pic.twitter.com/5IggNjX421— Alfonso Manalastas (@alfonsaurus_rex) April 13, 2018
"Is fat really the worst thing a human being can be? Is fat worse than vindictive, jealous, shallow, vain, boring, evil, or cruel? Not to me."— Miss Maggie (@MiaMagdalena) April 13, 2018
Hey, don't let Franco Mabanta get to you.
This is my shoutout to the people out there trying to love themselves in spite of it all. pic.twitter.com/55eeUIXetA
A fat-shamer, a marcos apologist and a self proclaimed political analyst walk into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, “Sorry henny but this place does not allow this much stupidity.”— Aivan (@aivancalonia) April 13, 2018
“But I am good looking.”
“Sis seriously Get over yourself Franco Mabanta.”
Dear @FrancoMabanta ,— K A Y E (@oohhhkaye) April 13, 2018
I just have a question for you: WHAT’S YOUR PAIN?
Because your hate must clearly be stemming from something. Nobody hates that much out of just pure desire to do so. And for that, I pity you.
May you experience how it is to be genuinely happy and loved.

He didn't use the internet (w/c he tells people to use for diet and exercise) to research further, relies on "thorough thought."
Thoroughly Misinformed Thought, that is. https://t.co/g4gd9ksB5A
"IT'S OKAY." Binura na ni Franco ang kanyang post.
“It's okay,” naman ang kanyang sagot nang sinabihang trending ito ngayon sa Twitter.
