Sharon slams Hayden over Marie France billboard

MANILA, Philippines – Megastar Sharon Cuneta has taken offense at former celebrity doctor Hayden Kho’s tweet regarding a certain billboard along EDSA.

The target of her fury was this statement made by Kho on his Twitter account last January 28: “There’s a billboard ad in EDSA developed by advertisers who think consumer are stupid. Guess.”

The megastar believes that Kho was referring to her controversial Marie France billboard that shows a healthy Cuneta versus a slimmer version of her. The billboard has been criticized for reportedly not reflecting the truth.

In her interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) on Wednesday, Cuneta lambasted Kho, who was the central figure in the 2009 sex video scandal.

“Kung totoo ‘yon, ang kapal ng mukha niya," she told PEP. "Tapos, mambabastos siya? As far as I'm concerned, stupid people shouldn't comment on what is stupid or not.”

"If I may add to that: Decent people are [the only] people I would like to listen to. Not those who do not know the meaning of decency. And who treat women like they're nothing! Excuse me,” the megastar added.

But Kho was quick to say that he was not referring to Cuneta and her Marie France billboard.

“Wow. I wasn't referring to MF. I was referring to a certain L**D, that's supposed to be "LOURDES". Dahan dahan naman po,” he tweeted.

Kho said Cuneta’s statement was “quite a wounding tirade from someone I respect. Ironic, really. Very ironic.” he tweeted.
