Pauleen Luna slammed a netizen for misinterpreting her comment about the skin tone of Eat Bulaga! co-host Pia Guanio.
Based on their exchange of Instagram comments, a netizen reproached Pauleen for calling Pia “morena” during a live telecast of the Kapuso noontime show.
The netizen, with the Instagram handle @thatslana, wrote: “I was watching Eat Bulaga today and found it ironic when you called @piaguanio_magio ‘morena’.
“Uh hello Pauleen, you were originally morena yourself. You're only light-skinned now thanks to glutathione.
“At least Pia is natural and classy. Just saying... learn to be humble and think before you speak.”
Pauleen fired back at the netizen for jumping to the wrong conclusion.
Pauleen’s response read: “Hi! For one, I called RUBY morena. If you've been watching the portion, we say the ‘opposite’ to intro one another.
“We called Pia the fattest because obviously she's the sexiest. So please get your story straight.”
Pauleen also emphasized that she finds morena women beautiful.
“Second, i was born with fair skin, i guess you wouldn't know that because hindi mo naman ako kilala talaga from before.
“Not that anything's wrong with being morena, my daughter is morena, fyi.
“And morena girls are beautiful. Now, i think it's you who should think before you speak, not me.”
Pauleen is the wife of Vic Sotto and they have a seven-month-old daughter, Talitha.
Pia used to be in a relationship with Vic, but has been happily married to non-showbiz husband Steve Mago since 2011.
They have two children: Scarlet Jenine, 6, and Soleil Brooklyn, 1.
