A teacher in Abra immediately deactivated his Facebook account after allegedly describing Angel Locsin as “obese” in a Physical Education module that was set to be used for Schools Division in Occidental Mindoro.

Many netizens called after the photo of the module went viral online, and called the educator’s insensitivity to use the actress’s body as an example to his questionnaires.

The educator wrote: “Situation: Angel Locsin is an obese person. She, together with Coco Martin, eats fatty and sweet food in MANG INASAL fast food restaurant most of the time. In her house, she always watching television and does not have any physical activities.”

Following the questions, “What do you think will happen to Angel if she continues her lifestyle?” and “How do lifestyle affects the health of an individual?”

A netizen commented on a thread saying that the educator could have used other fictitious names rather than celebrity names.

Another user said, “What’s wrong here is using someone’s name as an example and relating it to obesity and unhealthy eating habits without proper evidence that she (Angel) was diagnosed as obese by medical practitioners…it could’ve been she’s her size because of her medical conditions and many factors.”

Meanwhile, Angel, who is busy helping the people affected by the two typhoons, has yet to give her side. The Department of Education had not to issued any statements as well.

Angel Locsin, who has been known for her generosity, has also been a long-time supporter of plus-size women.
