Miss Germany backtracks, apologizes to Pia Wurtzbach

Miss Universe Germany apology
SCREENGRAB FROM MISS UNIVERSE-GERMANY’S FACEBOOK PAGE

After saying that she was unhappy with the victory of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Universe Germany Sarah Lorraine Riek has issued an apology to the Filipina beauty queen.

 

In a statement issued by the Miss Universe Germany Facebook page on Tuesday, it was said that she feels sorry for Wurtzbach and Miss Universe first runner-up and Colombia’s bet Ariadna Gutierrez.

 

Riek’s camp said that the German beauty did not intend to offend Wurtzbach “in any way.”

 

“Miss Universe Germany Sarah-Lorraine feels sorry for her colleague and friend Miss Colombia. This must have been the worst nightmare. She never intended to offend Miss Philippines in any way. She feels sorry for both girls. As well for Pia Miss Philippines that she didn’t have her real crowning moment,” the statement read.

In an interview with Missosology correspondent Natalia Cruz hours after the coronation, Riek said that she was not happy with the results as “none voted for Philippines.”

“She is really sorry if the video suggests anything else than that. It’s an emotional roller coaster what happened yesterday in Las Vegas. She and all the other girls felt so sorry for Colombia at that moment. They could all imagine how this must feel. That’s not the final result moment what you wish for anyone. And also for Pia,” the statement added.

In the end, Riek is said to be “very happy” with a half-German winning the crown.

“She wishes Pia all the best for this year as Miss Universe 2015,” the statement ended.

In the Missosology video, Riek cried foul and said that Gutierrez was robbed of the crown. She drew flak for her statement from netizens.

“I couldn’t believe it. I was so upset because, for me, she was robbed…I was very happy for Colombia, actually. she really deserved it. But I’m very unhappy with the result and so were the other girls, I’m very sorry to say it,” Riek told Cruz.

The coronation night of the pageant became controversial after host Steve Harvey incorrectly declared Gutierrez as the winner. Minutes after his botched announcement, he apologized. AJH

      Just believe it. don’t be upset and move on!!! The score board was presented in the cameras “live” showing the real score after the host corrected his announcement.

        If every trash talking is a normal thing to you, in the future no one will hold back to criticize, lambast or denigrate you.

        “Hayaan mo na lang..” Like Adam Carolla declariong in effect that Filipinos wives and daughters are all harlots and prostitutes.l

      • Jugular

        di naman ako kumakampi ke miss germany in case u want to insult a german say the name of hitler so u know okay adding his name insults them

  • Vete A Lamierda

    Recommendation for a disciplinary action for “Strip off the National Title as Ms. Germany” for this horrible “Sarah-Lorraine Riek”! A pageant title holder should act accordingly, this
    person is not at all a role model in any aspect and her tacky moral character
    doesn’t fit to represent any country specially as educated as Germany!

  • redsnapper1

    The headline was worded incorrectly. Miss Germany herself did not apologize. It was the organization that did it.

  • Delfin Kistadio

    you are not sincere with your apology and it is not enough for the crowned Miss Universe 2015. HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT ‘NONE OF US VOTED FOR MISS PHILIPPINES” THE STATEMENT HAS TAINTED THE CREDIBILITY OF THE PANEL OF JUDGES WHO ALL VOTED FOR MISS PHILIPPINES AS NUMBER ONE. YOUR STATEMENT IS VERY DAMAGING!!!!!

  • art

    The damage is done Ms. Germany… your such an uneducated person with low moral…worthy to be strip of any crown…(PinoyAko)

  • xueyou

    Ms. Germany is a big LOSER!!!

    • AkoyPekpekLover

      Next time any Miss Germany comes to Manila to compete in beauty contest, let’s boo her to show our disgust.

  • Elnore

    Never mess with Pinoys, mamamatay ka sa bashing, lol!

    • EnoughNa

      Ha ha!

    • AkoyPekpekLover

      No other country can bash as strong as Filipinos. Pinoy ba naman ang kinatalo nila.

  • It’s not surprising if the Latina contestants and those close to her stood by Ms. Colombia. What gets to most Filipinos’ nerves are their reactions that even though the mistake had been announced and owned by the host, they still showed how disrespectful they are towards the results of the competition and at the expense of Ms. Philippines, now Ms. Universe 2015. How the heck did that mistake become Miss Philippines’ fault? Clearly shows how narrow-minded these contestants are and just following their emotions either because they have the same race/skin color or they are friends with Colombia.

    • AkoyPekpekLover

      Yes, they prevented Pia from approaching Miss Colombia with one saying clearly in audio “Step back”. Those who came to congratulate Pia were Miss Malaysia, Myanmar, Bulgaria and a few Europeans.
