Reigning Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach on Wednesday warned her fans against fake social media accounts bearing her name.
“Please stop. This is not real. This is not me. Thank you. I have a fan page and a fan group that is being handled by Daryl and of course the Official Miss Universe Facebook page. Please help me spread the word out. Maraming salamat po (Thank you very much),” Wurtzbach wrote in an Instagram post.
The Filipino beauty queen posted a screenshot of a post from one fake account, asking followers to choose between Santiago and Duterte.
Santiago is Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago, while Duterte is Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte—both of whom are seeking the presidency in the upcoming May national elections.
Wurtzbach has returned to New York after a trip to Peru. She was in the country recently as she turned over her crown as Miss Universe-Philippines during the Binibining Pilipinas 2016 coronation night. YG/RAM
