Was she bothered in any way?

Not quite.

In fact, Pia Wurtzbach was more proud than sheepish.

In reaction, she simply used the hashtags: “#WINNER,” “#PHILIPPINES,” and “#POWERHOUSE.”

The brouhaha started with a netizen posting an old photo of American actress Keke Palmer wearing a gown similar in color and design at the 2014 Emmy Awards.

The netizen edited it to appear side-by -side with a photo of Pia wearing her now famous blue gown then wrote “Miss Copycat.”

“TO MUCH INSPIRASON KAK(heart emoji),” the text in the photo read.

But what’s the point, really?

it has been years since Pia made history being the third Filipina to win Miss Universe, following Gloria Diaz (1969) and Margie Moran (1973).

Sour grapes, perhaps?

Your guess is as good as ours.
