“I hate that! I get that all the time and I always ask myself how some people can be so comfortable at being tactless and say such things, but I learned also that through the years and after many “scratching my head” moments at such comments that believe it or not some mean it in a good way.” Martin said.

“Like , “you look happy!” “You look healthy!” “You look successful” and not so much, “oh my god you look like a walking talking condominium!” Tactless ? Or being too comfortable?? What ever it is it hurts yes? Ayyyy,” he added.

Television host Tim Yap also reacted to the post by Janno, saying that people should stop being tactless and giving comments about weight.

However, some netizens asked Janno to be kinder in giving a response next time.

“You can always let ppl know they did or said something wrong. That’s the more Christian thing to do,” a netizen told Janno.
