Tim Yap drew criticisms from netizens after making an unintentionally offensive comment on Twitter about the 2017 Binibining Pilipinas contestants.
KAMI learned about his controversial tweet from PEP.ph.
"Some of the girls don't look like they come from the provinces they represent. #BbPilipinas2017,” the celebrity-entrepreneur tweeted.
He immediately deleted the post after finding out that his comment was found offensive by many netizens.
"Instead of bashing these lovely women, why not talk about how we can empower other women too? Hater much?" a netizen asked.
"Meron naman po talaga lumaki at galing sa ibang probinsya ngunit naisponsoran ng ibang probinsya,” another netizen wrote.
(There really are contestants who grew up in a different province but were sponsored by another province.)
Yap then clarified his controversial comment.
"I'm not bashing them. Just like you, I'm excited to see who among them will shine. I didn't mean it that way. I am sorry for whoever I offended with my tweet. I think everyone is beautiful no matter where they're from,” Yap explained.
