Rabiya Mateo mostly received praises from the online community after she disagreed with President Rodrigo Duterte’s statement that women are not fit to be the Philippine president.
However, social media influencer Jam Magno – known for being a vocal supporter of the President – lambasted Mateo for disagreeing with Duterte.
According to Magno, the beauty queen should just focus on trying to win the Miss Universe pageant instead of commenting on Duterte’s opinion.
Magno, who claimed to have trained Filipina beauty queens for international pageants, also expressed her dislike of Mateo’s fashion sense.
“DO THE MATH MATEO. When you are suppose to represent the 104 Million Filipinos you need to do the MATH meaning that you should REPRESENT THE WHOLE and NOT THE TINY. I never want to speak against anyone who I know has every right to be angered about something like let’s say losing their Million Peso Livelihood due to the closure of their network. That I respect and I won’t really fight them on that.
“But as for you, I will NOT approve of the fact that you do not REPRESENT me as a woman at all. When your Fashion Sense is saddening and they pass you off as an intellectual instead. You know why Pia and Catriona won their crowns? They FOCUSED on the Prize. They rallied the Filipinos behind them. There was NO COLOR OR SIDE so they won and everyone united with them. If they have differing opinions now it’s because they EARNED IT.
“But as for you, focus on your ROLE. I liked you in the beginning as you and I love MDS BUT when you focus on emotions and NOT ON EMPOWERMENT I don’t think you will win that way. Have you seen Amanda Obdam? She at the very least should be your closest rival. But ameyga you can’t even beat her casual look even if you tried the hardest.
“Remember Madam, as QUEEN one must unite and not divide. But if you like Leni Robredo. It will come as no surprise that like her, you will fall short of that CROWN while she will fall FAR from the Presidency. And I THANK YOU,” Magno posted on Facebook.
