Actress Kylie Padilla has gained massive online bashing since her pregnancy and now, she once again hit the headlines when she was bashed by netizens for recently posting a photo exposing her dark armpit on Instagram.

Skin darkening is a normal phase of pregnancy and even celebrities who are famous for their flawless skin are no exception to this condition.

Padilla, who has always been every girl's envy for her porcelain white skin, happens to be experiencing such discolouration on her armpits.

Still, netizens were quick to attack the pregnant actress. 

However, there were also many who defended Padilla and slammed the bashers, pointing out that the darkening of skin is a natural part of pregnancy. 

After some time, the actress finally spoke out and posted her calm and composed answers on her Instagram.

The actress explained that lighting may have been a factor on the shade that appeared on her underarm, and that she was fully aware that her underarm is indeed dark when she posted the photo. 

She also poked fun at the bashers and ended with a message about self love. 

Padilla is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Aljur Abrenica. 

The news of her pregnancy broke headlines recently, which eventually forced the couple to publicly admit the issue.
