Matapos hirangin ng FHM Magazine si Jessy Mendiola bilang “sexiest woman” of 2016, sunud-sunod rin ang mga comments ng ilang netizens kung saan sinabihan siyang “mataba” at hindi raw niya deserve ang title na sexiest woman. Umalma naman ang The Voice Kids coach na si Lea Salonga at ipinagtanggol ang sexy actress sa mga body-shaming comments.

Sa kanyang Facebook post noong July 30, sinabi niyang ang pagiging sexy ay wala sa panlabas na anyo.

“For the record, I think Jessy Mendiola is one of the sexiest people I've ever cast my eyes on. It has less to do with her physique (which, by the way, is nothing to sneeze at) and more to do with how she carries herself. She could gain 20 pounds right now and my opinion of her wouldn't change,” ani Lea.

“Sexy has nothing to do with the outer shell and all to do with what's in you. You could be a Victoria's Secret model and have zero sex appeal, or be someone customarily plus-sized and get everyone in the room to set their gaze upon you. Or your opinion could differ from mine and not be any less valid. It's in the eye of the beholder,” dagdag pa niya.
