Miss Universe 2015 and our very own Pia Wurtzbach went live today at 4PM in her TikTok account to have a little chat with her followers. Her fans couldn’t resist asking her questions about the ongoing Miss Universe competition, but one thing that she made sure to answer was the question on bashing.

In light of what recently happened to our representative Miss Rabiya Mateo who received a handful of negative comments coming from her walk for the National Costume segment yesterday, it was apt that Pia was asked this questions. “I think now is the time to just take all of that out and be supportive to all the girls who we support and love. Hindi naman natin kailangan maghila ng tao pababs para umangat ang favorite natin diba. So I think now we should be showering her with love and support, making her feel like kahit na malayo tayo and a lot of us can’t be there because of travel restrictions, we’re there in spirit and support, because I’ve been there and kumukuha ka ng mga lakas sa mga tao, totoo yun.”

She added, “Nakakapagod kaya yun mga ginagawa nila. Siyempre, kita mo sa screen, parang ang dali lang, parang ang glamorous and effortless. It actually takes a lot of effort to look that effortless.”

“Now is not the time to be nitpicking,” she reminds her followers. “May team siya, may mga kasama siya, mga expert who advise her. She’s being guided.”

“They’re making the necessary adjustments to make sure that sa finals everything will be perfect,” she ends for this topic as she moved on to answer other questions.
