Miss Earth-USA comments on Philippines goes viral on Internet
MANILA, Philippines – Nasty comments made by a contestant who competed in the just concluded Miss Earth beauty pageant on the social networking site, Facebook, has gone viral, eliciting varied reactions to her post.
“I hardly made it to Manila and we already attended a ridiculous TV show. So annoying!!! These people want to touch you and be with you all the time!! I can’t understand a word they say. I can’t wait to go back home. This country is so dirty and noisy. I’m scared to eat!!! What a mess. On a lighter note I don’t see any real competition. Will keep you updated my loves”, according to the post that appeared on the Facebook page of Miss USA Nicole Lynn, which was uploaded before the pageant.
Lynn and other Miss Earth candidates guested in “Wil Time Big Time”, a television program hosted by Willie Revillame.
Lynn went on to lose the competition last December 4 that saw Miss Ecuador’s Olga Alava bag the crown with Miss Philippines’ Athena Mae Duarte Imperial winning the Miss Earth-Water title.
But in a video on the same page, Lynn claimed that her account was hacked and denied making such remarks.
Lynn’s “post” drew varied reactions. Among them:
Laine Palabrica from Antipolo, Rizal posted: “The truth, you speak it.”
John Levin Yalung Angeles from Holy Angel University said, “Well said mate.”
Yoko Cortez Muraoka of De La Salle University in Manila was scathing in her response: “That’s why you didn’t win!”
An anonymous post said: “Good thing she didn’t win — she doesn’t deserve to be crowned as Ms Earth if she would judge every country she will visit. She’s smart in a sense that she fooled the judges in the US who gave her the Ms Earth USA title, and stupid to rant on FB, and not change her privacy settings.”
