- A lot of netizens were irked by the controversial post at the Miss Grand International official account
- The photo and caption were allegedly pertaining to Catriona Gray
- Because of this, the pageant and its recent winner Clara Sosa were bashed online
The online world was rocked once again by a controversial post in the Miss Grand International account as it allegedly targeted Catriona Gray’s journey in the Miss Universe 2018.
KAMI learned that the Pinay beauty queen is currently in Thailand to compete in the world’s “most prestigious” pageant as she also becomes the early favorite to win the crown.
A lot of pageant experts said that the Philippines’ bet is certainly the one who will lord the contest but Catriona believes it is everyone’s game until the coronation night.
Because of this, netizens speculated that the post at the Miss Grand International Instagram account was meant for the Pinay contestant.
On December 15, the official account of the recently-concluded pageant posted a photo of its winner Clara Sosa while having a cooking session with MGI President Nawat Itsaragrisil.
The caption greeted the pageant’s followers using a Filipino term and laughed after saying something about cooking show.
“Mabuhay!!! Real cooking show lol,” it wrote.
It was not clear if Miss Paraguay Clara Sosa was the one who posted the controversial statement but a lot of social media users did not like the “insensitivity” of Miss Grand International.
Some of the netizens even accused the pageant itself for being the “real cooking show” as they mentioned that the fainting incident during its recent coronation night was nothing but scripted.
Here are the reactions of netizens:
“You may [have] won the title but you will never win our hearts. Very unprofessional of you to show this kind of attitude to the young girls.”
“Is this how you promote of stopping war and violence? Your statement here might bring another storm because of your insensitivity. I am not a basher of MGI, but this is getting far from its advocacy.”
“MGI has gone this low and cheap! What a disgrace so opposite of what it ought to advocate! Zero credibility at all!”
“Not a queenly act. Well, what to expect from a fake fainted queen? Nothing but all show. Everything is fake.”
“I know it would happen. It was done out of jealousy and envy? Who can withstand it when Miss Universe is receiving a lot of attention because of Miss Philippines.”
In a previous article by KAMI, Catriona opened up about the technical glitch she experienced during the national costume competition.
Catriona Gray is a Filipina-Australian beauty queen and actress who is hoping to win the fourth Miss Universe crown for the Philippines. The Grand Coronation Night will happen on December 17 in Bangkok, Thailand.
