Reina Hispanoamericana Wynwyn Marquez recently spoke out about the blame that netizens put on Pia Wurtzbach regarding Rachel Peters’ early exit on Miss Universe 2017. She spoke out on Twitter last November 28, Tuesday.
She stated how confusing Filipinos are. Wynwyn also said that win or lose, somebody will always say something negative. She is asking Filipino to try and be positive.
“Some pinoys are really confusing. If matalo, dami sinisisi daming nasasabi. If manalo naman, dami padin nasasabi kesho ganito kasi kaya ganun. Mahirap ba maging positive can we atleast try? kaya naman diba?”
She was referring to the issue about netizens blaming Pia, Miss Universe 2015, for Rachel’s loss. They also believe that Pia had given Rachel a low score while she was judging. Some netizens confirm that they believe the reason behind it is for Pia to remain the latest Miss Universe from the Philippines.
Then, one netizen thought that Pia didn’t want Rachel to steal the popularity away from her.
“bakla @IamEthylGabison nilaglag sya cguro ni @PiaWurtzbach kasi baka ma steal sa kanya ang popularity and to think na magkaibang training camp sila..nako ewan ko nalang ha”
Another one also replied and said:
“Yan din iniisip ko baka nilaglag talaga siya! Na-imbyerna ako! Kahit man lang sa top 5 dapat nakapasok siya.”
They also planned on boycotting Pia and unfollow her on every social media account:
“Nilaglag pra hindi mawala kasikatan nya. Period.
“Very true! Nakakaimbyerna siya!
Some netizens agreed and demanded Pia not to take the attention for herself.
“Yes talaga! Ayaw masapawan ang kasikatan kaya nilaglag. Hindi kna miss universe kaya wag k umasta n ikaw p rin ang atensyon ng lahat”
Moreover, Pia recently reacted to this issue with a video on Twitter via Stevie Angeles:
“I was fair. I was fair to everyone. Not just to Miss Philippines but also the other candidates. And I think that’s why they chose me because they knew that I was going to be fair and impartial when it comes to judging for choosing the next Miss Universe.”
