(UPDATE) The Department of Education has apologized for a teaching material that went viral for body-shaming actress and philantrophist Angel Locsin.

Locsin replied on Instagram saying cheap comments don't define her. However, she said she was bothered that DepEd "seems unaffected that the said teacher is teaching bad conduct and sowing discrimination among the children." 

The teacher should apologize to his students and all those who read the module. 

The document was made by the teacher for a Grade 10 MAPEH class and was not developed by the DepEd central office, the DepEd Occidental Mindoro said.

"We would like to express our sincerest apology to the concerned individuals who may have been offended or harmed by this incident. The Department of Education does not tolerate nor condone any act of body shaming, ad hominem or any similar act of bullying both in the physical and virtual environments," according to the statement.

The matter will be given "serious attention," DepEd said, as it appealed to the public to "spare" the teacher from attacks as "this single mistake will not define him as a person."
