One of Manila's premier hotels Diamond Hotel has been under fire recently after a netizen shared on social media the alleged body shaming incident from its employees.

In a now-viral post last February 24, Carlo Tandico called out the hotel's human resource office and management for allegedly body shaming his girlfriend.

"My girlfriend is looking for a 3-5 Star Hotel where she can do her internship/OJT as required by her school. I know she's been tired for two consecutive weeks, looking and going around Metro Manila and Tagaytay," he wrote.


"She then received a text message last Wednesday for an interview from Diamond Hotel. We have been delighted as finally, this will made her dream come true to finish her college. She went last Thursday and spoke with one of your Managers and she was called as 'Gasul' kasi daw, 'Maliit kana nga, mataba pa.' Manager added, 'That's true! Magreduce ka!'," he continued.

Tandico then asked for an apology from the hotel following the incident.

"I'm calling you out Diamond Hotel! I dont want others to feel what my girlfriend had experienced. She deserve an apology. Hence, this shouldn't be normalized."


As of writing, Tandico's post has now garnered 132K reactions and 48K shares.

On the same day, Diamond Hotel released a statement regarding the matter.

In a Facebook post, the hotel said they are now investigating the matter to take appropriate actions.


"Diamond Hotel Philippines is aware of a recent Facebook post that brought attention to an alleged incident concerning an internship applicant," it said.

"We want to assure everyone that the hotel does not tolerate such behavior and take these claims seriously," it added.
