Frankie Pangilinan is concerned over the extra attention she has been gaining for her bikini photos recently.
The daughter of Megastar Sharon Cuneta and Senator Francis Pangilinan confessed on Tuesday that she's not exactly too happy with this, considering that there are "many more important things people should all be discussing" right now, say, caring for the environment, supporting local businesses, or simply showing kindness to others, among many others.
And so, she decided to use this as an opportunity to reach out to her Instagram followers and encourage them to divert the focus to more "pressing issues."
She said, "I decided to mention some here: Avoid plastic bottles and straws. Recycle if you can’t… Our farmers deserve better, try and buy from your local farms instead of going through a middleman. Vaccinate your kids. Register to vote, donate to WWF Philippines, support local brands… because colonial mentality is bad enough and it shouldn’t get to ruin our economy."
“Don’t buy skin whitening products. Don’t body shame. Stay hydrated. Be kind. That’s just a few things I believe we should all try to keep in mind," she added.
hi! whenever i post a swimsuit pic it seems to get a little extra attention. i definitely don’t feel comfortable with that when there are so many more important things we should all be discussing, so i decided to mention some here: avoid plastic bottles and straws, recycle if you can’t (like me now abdjhsjahdhs). our farmers deserve better, try and buy from your local farms instead of going through a middle man. vaccinate your kids. register to vote. donate to @wwfphilippines. support local brands like @eighthmermaid (who very kindly gave me this bikini) because colonial mentality is bad enough and it shouldn’t get to ruin our economy. don’t buy skin whitening products. don’t body shame. stay hydrated. be kind. that’s just a few things i believe we should all try to keep in mind 🙇🏻♀️ much love always, kakie 💙
