As if the prenuptial shoot of celebrity couple Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia hasn’t received enough backlash yet, netizen Janelle Payumo noticed something embarrassing about the blazer Billy was wearing in some of their photos.
Janelle Payumo shared a cropped photo of Billy wearing said suit, and juxtaposed it with a photograph of her mother sporting a tote bag. The embarrassing part is that the fabric in Billy’s blazer and Janelle’s mother look exactly the same.
Netizens can’t help but share a laugh over the photos, as Billy’s blazer went from classy and fancy to cheap real quick.
Still, it is unlikely that the celebrity couple will have the time to pay Janelle Payumo’s post any attention, as they are facing bigger and worse problems. See, they are currently being accused of cultural appropriation and insensitivity because of the very theme of their photoshoot.
They chose an Ethiopian theme, and they went all out in going to Ethiopia itself. They posed against sceneries, fauna, and even people native to Ethiopia. A lot of netizens called foul over these photos, especially the ones utilizing Ethiopian nationals as part of the couple’s background.
Netizen Rachel Ravana wrote on Facebook, to the agreement of many others:
I don’t think we should all admire a prenup photoshoot making background props out of Ethiopian women and children. These photos are heartbreaking & enraging at the same time. I understand that prenup photoshoots get so extra these days but to this extent?
Still, there are those who saw nothing wrong with the photos:
Masyado naman.kayong mrnmng.sinasabi e s gusto nila.ganyan concept marunong p kyo s ikakasal basta wla silang nilalabag n batas wla kyong pakelam!! Mga ingrato, pakialamero, bwiset kyo!!!”
“Wala namang tinatapakang tao sila Billy at Coleen sa ginagawa nila sa photoshoot nila ah.. Ano bang mali jan? Eh kasalanan bang mgpa photoshoot sa lugar na iyan? Ang kikitid naman ng mga utak ng taong ganyan. Ultimo mag photoshoot gagawin pang kumplikado! Haissstt tao nga naman..”
