“Akala ko engkanto.”
“Over well done ang chicken,,charge sa grillman.”
“Tostadong tostado na nga, NASUNOG pa.”
“hindi sa hinuhusgahan ko pero natatakot ako sa kanya promise..parang hindi sya tao.”
Ilan lang ito sa mga masasakit na salita na natanggap ng pambato ng Canada sa Miss Universe 2020 na si Nova Stevens mula sa ilang Pinoy pageant fans.
Inilabas niya ang kanyang saloobin tungkol dito sa pamamagitan ng isang Instagram post.
Here we go again. I’ve been receiving this picture in my inbox a lot lately.
Hindi rin niya naitago ang pagkadismaya sa mga hate comments.
With all that has been going on in the world ‘black lives matter’ ‘Asians are human’ you would think this would bring us together. Instead, looks like some people are still stuck in their ignorant and racist ideologies. I’m really disappointed with some Pagaent fans from certain countries. Your hate takes away the fun and enjoyment from this once in a lifetime experience. Is it really that difficult to spread love instead of hate? No one is saying you HAVE to support all contestants, all we’re saying is that you support your delegate without bringing others down. You don’t need to dim someone’s light in order for you to shine.
Sa huli, ipinaalala niya ang tunay na kahulugan ng ‘beauty.’
The world is evolving, people are realizing that beauty is not exclusive to one specific group of people. The definition of beauty applies to all; because beauty can be seen in different shapes, shades and sizes. Please see the beauty that is in this world. We don’t need to look the same, we just need to treat each other the same.
Sumang-ayon naman sa mga naging pahayag niya ang ilang mga Pinoy pageant fans at nanawagang tigilan ang pamba-bash kay Miss Canada, sa halip ay suportahan ang ating pambato na si Rabiya Mateo.
Kahit walang kinalaman sa issue, nanghingi na rin ng paumanhin si Rabiya kay Miss Canada, maging kay Miss Thailand, sa mga natatanggap nilang hate comments mula sa Pinoy fans.
Samantala, tila hindi naman nagustuhan ng ilang Pinoy fans ang umano’y pagpupuntirya ni Miss Canada sa mga Pinoy.
Anila, hindi lamang naman sa mga Pinoy nanggagaling ang mga hate comments ngunit bakit kailangang puro mga negatibong komento mula sa mga Pinoy ang ipinost nito.
Can you please stop using the VICTIM CARD Miss @NovaStevens?
Other queens are being bashed too.. but they are not acting "Babyish" just as you do. Singling out Filipino fans is never queenly.
People already apologized & how about let's move forward?
Enough of this DRAMA. pic.twitter.com/ug0RrnUT0R

I have a question when I saw Nova Stevens’ post with the names of the people who bullied her and were not blurred, is it considered din ba bullying? Baka kasi it would intensify hate towards those people and their sanity would be at stake din. 🧐 Kasi i-bully din sila. Hmm

Sa sumunod niyang Instagram post, humingi rin ng paumanhin si Miss Canada sa Filipino fans.
Let’s end things on a positive note.
Hindi raw niya nilalahat ang mga Pinoy fans.
To my Filipino fans: I’m sorry if my previous post caused you any harm. My post wasn’t intended to incite more hate; rather shed light on the toxicity that sometimes hails from fans (from all over the world). The last thing I want is for anyone to experience hate so please don’t bash or generalize the Filipino fans; not all are racist. Some of my closest friends who also happen to be some of the nicest people I know are Filipino . In every group of people; whether black, white, green, yellow, red, purple, there are always a few bad apples. I know for a fact there is more good than evil in this world; Which is why it’s important to shed light on the darkness so that our collective light can illuminate the world.
Sa huli, hinikayat niya ang lahat na maging positibo at suportahan ang mga kandidata sa Miss Universe.
Please let this be the last post I or other queens have to post regarding hate. Let’s get back to spreading love, celebration and making Pageants fun for all! Root for the girls, they deserve to be celebrated and spoiled with lots of love. They’ve worked so hard. Give them the best gift you can give anyone; if you’re not sure what that gift should be, I’ll help you out. Give them love. Nothing else. Just love.
I love you all. Sending you all lots of love and light❤️💫
