Mixed reactions from netizens as Marlou Arizala transforms into Xander Ford
Ending weeks of speculation, the new look of Internet celebrity Marlou Arizala has been unveiled to the public through the latest episode of the television show “Rated K.”
Arizala, who is a former member of the dance group Hasht5, recently underwent a facial reconstructive surgery at the Icon Clinic. The said clinic was founded by Dr. Samuel Eric Yapjuangco, a fellow of the Philippine Association of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgeons or PAPRAS.
It can be recalled that Arizala is frequently the target of jokes by netizens because of what they perceive as his deficit in the looks department. His “transformation” set social media on fire late Sunday night, with some netizens expressing amusement as to how much he has changed.
Others, meanwhile, lamented that Arizala was only forced to undergo the procedure because of the insults he is getting from the public.

Happy for Xander Ford. Sad for those who can't or won't respect him before and even after.

It's so sad knowing that Marlou felt the need to change into Xander Ford just to be accepted by society. Smh.

Xander Ford proved how society values physical appearance more than personality. So sad ?
