For someone as famous as Andrea Brillantes, it’s pleasing to see her being vocal about her favorite bands and other personalities she looks up to. In fact, she was one of the celebrities who partied at this year’s Wanderland Festival, the country’s annual music and arts festival which features both homegrown and international indie artists.
Among those who graced the stage for the event was IV of Spades, a local indie band which has been the talk of the town due to their retro style. Of course, Andrea Brillantes did not hesitate to grab the opportunity to take a selfie with the group’s frontman, Unique Salonga.
However, what was supposed to be a rewarding and memorable experience for Andrea became somewhat of a nightmare when a fan of the band made a rude remark directed at her on Twitter. Using her self-portrait with Unique, the tweep wrote an unsavory note that read:
“Iha kita na ‘yung baby bra mo.”
Apparently, the teen star’s undergarment was exposed a little bit, and this resulted in a number of online haters hurling negative comments at the young starlet.
Soon enough, Andrea published a lengthy message in an attempt to defend herself from her bashers. In her post, she was questioning why some people made a big deal out of her visible undergarments in the first place.
“I’m a woman and wearing a bra is normal..shaming a 15 year old because of it is not normal. Tumakbo at tumalon kasi ako para makapag pa picture kay Unique kaya haggard ako, tao lang. Guys can wear super low bottoms and kita brief but no one else would care, pag girls nakita lang bra/strap it’s a big deal na? Bakit ganun.”
Moreover, the young actress stated that she was not going to apologize for something she shouldn’t be sorry about. In the latter part of her letter, she thanked God as well as her fans who stepped up to defend her from the uncouth remarks thrown at her. Andrea also posted another tweet to assure her supporters that she was fine.
