- Nguyen released a statement to clarify her comment about Kylie
Miss Universe Vietnam 2017 Nguyen Thi Loan has apologized to Miss International Kylie Verzosa and her fans for her controversial “ugly” comment on social media.
KAMI learned about the controversy from PEP.ph.
The issue started when Nguyen wrote “ugly” in the comments section of Kylie’s photo.
For this reason, netizens started to bash Nguyen on social media.
She then made a clarification of her controversial comment.
"Dear Kylie & Filipino Beauty Fans,
"I would like to clarify a comment that I made last year. Please give me a minute to explain.
"A year ago, when I was checking information on social media, I saw a picture of Kylie, Miss International 2016. Just by natural reaction, I thought that it was not a good picture of her and I commented based on my honest feelings.
“You would agree with me that sometimes, even the most beautiful person, could have a non-really photogenic picture... due to the angle, lighting or a wrong moment. Perhaps, I could have stated things more clearly but due to my limited English I made you all misunderstood me.
“I want to emphasize that i don't judge or comment about people just like that. Instead of being more explanative about my meaning, after realizing that I did not use my words correctly, I immediately deleted the comment.
"After that, I decided to keep silent because I did not want to cause any more misunderstandings or accidentally hurt anyone's feelings (including Kylie's ones if she would have noticed about that).
"I am so sorry for any inconvenience caused. I sincerely apologize for hurting Kylie and you by accident. This is a lesson for me and I will take more care in the future.
"I wish all Filipino fans good health and happiness... and congratulations Kylie for your successful year term as Miss International 2016. Best wishes for you!!"
