- Miss Earth Philippines winner Imelda Bautista Schweighart did a Facebook live with Miss Austria
- The video turned into an awkward conversation when Schweighart asked if Hitler was from Austria then proceeded to tell that Duterte is doing the same stuff
- Netizens got enraged during this conversation
Imelda Schweighart may have won the judges’ votes during the Miss Earth Philippines crowning last June 11, but this time around, she has not won the votes of many Filipino people.
During her Facebook live video just recently, Schweighart got the chance to talk with Miss Austria Kimberly Budinsky. It started out with sweet and loving mood that turned sour real fast.
They were all smiles in the video but out of nowhere, Schweighart asked Budinsky: “Is Hitler from Austria?”
A change in the mood and face of Budinsky can be clearly seen upon hearing that question. According to her, it’s a “bad question” because it is somehow a taboo topic for people in Austria to talk about. Despite the predicament she was in, Budinsky kept her poise and grace in answering that awkward question.
Suddenly, Schweighart made a claim that will soon hit her with many hateful comments.
Miss Earth Philippines winner said: “Our President is doing Hitler stuff here in the Philippines.”
Miss Austria’s only reply was “That’s crazy! Well that’s how it is.”
The video has been taken down from her Facebook account because of the hateful and vile comments she has received from many people regarding her Duterte-Hitler remark. It was re-uploaded, however, by Facebook page Pageant Central yesterday that was able to catch the awkward live video between Miss Austria and Philippines.
Many netizens were enraged with this and even attacked her online through derogatory comments.
Some urged that she should be more sensitive and try to improve her social skills when talking about issues such as this.
It can be noted that a few weeks ago, Duterte likened himself to Hitler who killed millions. Soon after that and receiving flak, he apologized for it.
Here’s the video of their awkward encounter as uploaded by Pageant Central:
