Since giving birth in February of last year, Indonesian actress/entrepreneur Shandy Aulia has been posting mostly about her daughter Claire, her motherhood journey, as well as her #OOTDs on Instagram.
The 33-year-old celebrity, who relocated to Bali with her family late last year, recently posted a couple of photos where she wore a light blue bikini by a pool at the Karma Kandara luxury resort in Ungasan, which overlooks the ocean.

While the photos look good — with Shandy looking serene and surrounded by the beautiful scenery — and netizens praised her figure, many others left negative comments, including some who told her to cover up. One woman in particular, however, appears to feel threatened by the harmless photo and decided to take her time of the day to lecture another adult woman on the internet.
“The kindhearted Mbak Shandy, next time if you want to upload a photo, you don’t have to wear a bikini like this. I’m afraid Claire will follow your steps in being pornographic when she grows up, especially because for us Christians it is better to upload photos [of us wearing] clothes that are more decent, Shandy,” the user wrote.
“Everyone knows your body is goals, it’s really cool, even I, who’s about to enter her 50s, am empowered seeing you very disciplined in working out. My daughter is very inspired seeing you in terms of working out. Okay pretty Mbak Shandy, stay healthy, and send my regards to Claire.”
While celebs don’t always reply to social media comments from strangers, Shandy evidently felt the need to put this one in her place.
“Hello Ma’am, I didn’t know that wearing a bikini is considered as porn. I think every human has a different way of thinking, because if every woman was called pornographic whenever she wore a bikini, then there would be so many women in this world appearing as pornographic just because they wear their bikinis,” Shandy wrote.
“To me, seeing someone’s personality based on what they’re wearing is such a shallow way of thinking, because I see someone not only based on their clothing but from many aspects. Thank you.”
It’s 2021 and we’re in the middle of the pandemic, so let’s mind our own business and let others wear whatever they want on the beach.
