- Catriona Gray’s basher won as Miss Grand Thailand 2019
- Samantha Lo reacts to Catriona’s basher
- Catriona speaks out on body-shaming bully
Newly crowned Thai beauty queen Coco Arayha Suparurk has gained criticisms after she shared a post on her Instagram Stories last week comparing Catriona Gray with Miss Grand International 2018 Clara Sosa from Paraguay.
The word “fit” was placed under Sosa’s picture, while “fat” was beneath Catriona’s photoshopped one.
Fellow beauty queens have expressed their support for Miss Universe 2018 online after the Thai beauty queen’s body-shaming post.
Miss Universe Canada 2016 Siera Bearchell, who had been a victim of body-shaming during the Miss Universe competition, stood up for Gray through a vlog in 2018 when a swimsuit picture of her shared on Vogue Thailand’s Instagram page drew comments such as “chubby” and “plump.”
In another vlog on July 10, Siera said, “If there are young women or just women in general who see these pictures of her (Catriona) and then they see that people are calling her fat, I cannot help but question and I know that some of these people question themselves.
“What would a young woman who may be struggling with her body image think if she saw a picture of Catriona and she saw that people are calling her fat?”
Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2019 Samantha Lo had a candid response to Coco Arayha.
She was asked on Instagram Stories about her thoughts on “what Miss Grand Thailand said about Miss Universe.”
“She’s not invited to pizza night with Cat and I,” her reply along with images of a pizza slice and two soda bottles.
Samantha and Coco Arayha will both compete in the Miss Grand International 2019 pageant happening on October 25, Friday at Teatro Metropolitan, Mexico.
