MANILA, Philippines – After removing his make-up, contact lens, and hair extension in “It’s Showtime” yesterday (May 28) to show that real beauty comes from within, Vice Ganda posted a picture of him without make-up on Instagram with the hashtag #ProudToBeMe.
The said hashtag then became a nationwide trending topic on Twitter after netizens posted their own unfiltered photos, inspired by Vice to be proud of who they are.
Vice’s “revelation” in “It’s Showtime” happened in his “Advice Ganda” segment, where he comforted a bullying victim who said her schoolmates often called her ugly.
He also advised the student to be proud of her own looks. “We can’t force other people to call us beautiful, but we, no matter what happens, should always see ourselves as beautiful. What our hearts say should always be more powerful than the words of other people. You are beautiful whoever you are because God created you, so you should never be affected by what others say,” shared Vice.
Don’t miss the fun in “It’s Showtime,” 12:15PM from Mondays to Fridays and 12NN on Saturdays on ABS-CBN. For updates, follow @ItsShowtimena on Twitter, @ItsShowtimeOfficial_IG on Instagram, and like www.facebook.com/itsShowtimena.
