Many netizens bashed Miss World Philippines 2007 Maggie Wilson for her negative comments from months ago about Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray winning the swimsuit competition at the Binibining Pilipinas pageant.
KAMI learned that Maggie has broken her silence about her bashers.
According to Maggie, she has already learned from her past mistake and that she will not let people bash her now for it.
She also admitted to getting emotional because of the hatred online towards her:
“On my last night in this city, I found myself crying at the dinner table. I wasn’t sure at first why I was so emotional but then as the sun set I realised just how lucky I am.
“Today, I kept changing my settings here on IG because of the immense backlash I’ve been getting over something I said 9 months ago.
“I have made mistakes but have learnt and made peace with them and I refuse to be vilified by them. Your mistakes aren’t what defines you but it is how you behave and learn from them after you’ve committed one. The one thing constant in life is change, I find comfort in that. I’ve learnt and have chosen to be more understanding of the world around me. To be more sensitive towards people and my surroundings.
“With that said, I’ve switched my comments back on but I will no longer tolerate negativity and hate on any of my social media pages. There is enough of it going around already. If any of you decide to continue with the anger, mockery and negativity then you are no better. I truly wish you find happiness and peace,” she wrote.
