- Moira dela Torre experienced being mocked during a Marikina concert apparently due to her weight
- Moira said women are beautiful irrelevant of the body size
- She also wished the individual would love himself so he won’t need to bring people down
Moira dela Torre, a singer-composer known for her songs Malaya, Titibo-tibo and Sundo, wrote a message to an audience member who made fun of her during a December 30 concert at the Marikina Sports Complex.
According to an ABS-CBN News story, one of the audience supposedly mocked the singer’s weight as she recounted on Twitter that the individual called her huge and ugly.
“To the rude kuya shouting, ‘Ang taba mo, laki mo, Moira, panget, taba’ while I was performing last night, I was so tempted to look at you and give you a piece of my mind. But I didn’t want anyone feeling how you made me feel. Even you,” she posted on Twitter.
She added women are beautiful irrelevant of their body size and she would be the last person to disrespect the audience member.
The singer also wished the person would love himself so he won’t need to bring people down just to feel funny or important.
“If you’re reading this, I hope next year showers you love. Happy new year,” she ended.
The incident took place during a yearend concert which was attended by some 70,000 fans.
The concert, as per Metro Manila Politiko, was a treat to the public brought by the Ating Koop party-list with the help of Mayor Marcelino Teodoro.
Aside from Moira, the all-male group Hashtags, Ex-Battalion and others performed during the concert.
Moira started her career as a voice artist working on corporate jingles.
She joined the first season of The Voice of the Philippines in 2013 and impressed coach aple.de.ap with her rendition of the song Hallelujah.
Her first single was released in 2014 titled “Love Me Instead” and then her debut EP titled “Moira.”
