Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach apologized for blocking some netizens who commented in her tweet.
It all started when Pia tweeted about the two Pinay beauty queens who recently won the title for the international beauty pageants they joined.
Karen Ibasco hailed as Miss Earth 2017 and Winwyn Marquez as Reina Hispanoamericana 2017.
Pia wrote: “Everyday may crown ang Philippines! Congratulations!”
Some netizens commented issues about extra judicial killings in Pia's congratulatory tweet.
This issue has been one of the most talked about topics nowadays.
According to some of the netizens, Pia gives more priority to international beauty pageants than the issue of EJK.
Pia blocked some of these netizens in response to their comments.
They kept on criticizing her despite being blocked by her.
Some of them dared her to react about the issue. And still others defended her saying they should not drag her to the issue because it is not relevant to her tweet.
In her Twitter account, Pia issued an apology to those who were offended by her action.
“I'm sorry po. I don't mean to be misunderstood po and I don't mean to offend anyone. I am very much pro life. Salamat po mga kababayan.”
