YOU KNOW THERE are no hot issues in showbiz today because even Kathryn Bernardo’s being bow-legged has now hit the headlines and being talked about like it’s an issue of national importance.

In her latest vlog on youtube, Kathryn voiced out her feelings about bashers who make fun of her for being “sakang”. This is an answer to the hashtag “@sakangsiKathryn” that trended on Twitter.

She said she was so hurt then whenever they point this out to her and she felt so insecure with her legs. “Kasi grabe yung negative energy,” she says. “Andaming time talaga ng bashers.

"But over the years, alam nyo, natutuhan kong  tanggapin ang legs ko. Yes it’s not straight. It’s kinda ganyan, ‘parang parenthesis’, yun ang sinasabi nila. E, wala e. Parte siya ng pagkatao ko.”

But someone made her realize that being bow legged is not really a big thing.  “Before, sobra ang insecurity ko rito. Pero alam niyo kung sino nagpa-realize sa akin na huwag magpa-insecure? Si DJ (Daniel Padilla, her boyfriend.)

"Through DJ na-overcome ko ang insecurity ko about my legs. Na-realize kong lahat naman tayo, merong imperfections. Siguro nagkataon, ibinigay sa akin ni God yung legs ko.

"And anong gagawin ko? E, di nagwo-workout ako para ma-excercise siya. And tatanggapin ko, kasi hello?! Hindi naman ako makukulong dahil sa pagkasakang ko!”

At this point of her video, Kathryn even raised her legs to show them off. “Basta now, I love my legs! Si DJ love din niya ang legs ko! Ngayon tanggap ko na siya 100 percent! Come on, bashers! You kiss my f*cking legs! Hahaha!”

Her fans tell Kathryn that it’s Ferdie Topacio, the lawyer of her rival, Nadine Lustre, who spearheaded the annoying Tweets against Kathryn about #SakangsiKathryn comparing her legs to a pair of pliers that are far apart from each other.

Honestly, though, Kathryn’s fans have more reason to gloat as their idol is the Box Office Queen who starred in the highest grossing local film of all time, “Hello Love Goodbye”, whereas Nadine’s career is neither here nor there after the two last two movies she did, “Ulan” and “Indak” proved to be both big flops at the tills last year.
