Laura Lehmann quoted Megan’s tweet with her own thoughts on said camp wars:
“Filipinas support Filipinas. Regardless of camp. Regardless of organization. We are always stronger when we are united. 🙂 “
Netizens reacted both positively and negatively to both tweets.
On Megan’s tweet, one netizen just thinks that Rachel wasn’t just confident enough.
“I think she just lacked bigness on stage compared to the other ladies. Her aura said it all. She seemed smaller than she really is!”
Then, another netizen said that the only thing that would stop the said wars is to make the organization to show the tally sheet.
“The only thing that would stop this chaos is for MUO to show the tally sheet or scorecards if all the top 10 candidates.”

“You have my full respect since @meganbata. Thanks for speaking up!
A netizen replied about the mentality of Filipinos.
“i cannot believe the mentality of some people here. who competed? why is pia getting the judgment? rachel did not make it. she did her best but just did not make it to the cut. and each of the top 5 was better compared to her. that is all to it. let us not be sore losers.”
On Laura’s tweet, a netizen praised every queen even without their crowns.
“And with or without those crowns, all of you are the queens for us, Filipinos! “
Another netizen was happy that people like them represent their country.
“Love ya’ll girls. You just did great to represent our country. Mwaah!!! still PH is the best.”
