AceShowbiz - Noah Centineo has become the latest victim of Internet trolls. The 23-year-old actor, who stole the hearts of many young female audience through his portrayal of Peter Kavinsky in "To All the Boys I've Loved Before", has been body-shamed after posting a shirtless photo online.
The former "Austin & Ally" star showed his sense of humor with the new photo which he shared on his Instagram account on Tuesday, July 30. Showing his bare chest while holding a phone, he wrote in the caption, "Mom I'll be home in May."
The photo has been liked by almost 3 million users, including singer Sam Smith, with some people replying to his funny caption. YouTube star Lucas Rangel cheekily wrote, "Mom I'm rich and I'll never get back." Young TV actor Diego Velazquez also quipped, "i'm never comin home."
Some others, however, got into the negative spirit and insulted Noah for losing his abs, especially after he flaunted his sculpted body in Calvin Klein ad earlier this year. "Jeesh he let himself go," one wrote, comparing his current body to his previous figure. "Yikes what happened," another commented, while some others said he should "go fitness."
But Noah's loyal fans have quickly come to his defense. Hitting back at those body-shamers, one wrote in the comment section, "what problems do you have?! He's hot for his intelligence, he's handsome for the person that who is. He's wonderful for his smile and his eyes. Be mature and appreciate him not for the physical aspect."
Another echoed the previous statement, "What are you all complaining about? Body shaming it isn't Just wrong for women but for men too. Damn grow up Kids. Nobody is perfect, Noah is a talented actor Who doesn't need abs to be what he is."
Other similar comments reads, "Do you have any f***ing problems? He's a human being, he does what the f**k he wants with his f***ing body, Jesus" and "Guys, damn he's a human, he doesn't have to have abs for being cool, hot or a good person. He's happy in this way so f**k off." Another convinced Noah, "You are perfect with or without abs."
Prior to Noah, Jason Momoa received the same treatment from online trolls after he's pictured going shirtless during a vacation in Venice, Italy with his family in early July. People body-shamed him for his "dad bod" and for losing his "Aquaman" abs. But the 39-year-old actor was also defended by his fans, who thought that he still looked hot with his "dad bod."
