Instagram post from ‘Miss Grand Int’l’ draws criticisms
MANILA, Philippines — A “shady” post from the Miss Grand International Instagram account allegedly referring to the newly crowned Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray drew flak from Filipino netizens.
In the photo uploaded on December 15, two days after the preliminaries of the Miss Universe pageant, Miss Grand International 2018 Clara Sosa is seen in a kitchen set-up with television host Nawat Itsaragrisil with the caption: mabuhay!! Real cooking show lol
Itsaragrisil is the president of Miss Grand International and Miss Grand Thailand.
It can also be noted that the post came after it was announced that two Filipinas are included in the line-up of judges for the prestigious pageant.
Netizens were quick to speculate on the underlying tone of the post, which some said is a target to the Philippine bet Gray. /jpv
