Here are the reactions of netizens to the remark of Gloria Diaz about the exclusivity of Miss Universe
GLORIA DIAZ – The Miss Universe 1969 received mixed reactions following her remark on the exclusivity of the Miss Universe pageant.
In an interview with the entertainment website, Push, she expressed her opinion about married women, single moms, and transwomen joining the prestigious Miss Universe pageant. According to her, they should not join the pageant.
“Edi dapat, ‘Universe’ na lang, huwag nang ‘Miss.’ Kasi, hindi na ‘Miss’ yon, ‘di ba? Dapat ‘Universe’,” she said. The actress-beauty queen clarified that it is just her opinion and for her, there should be a separate contest for them.
“[M]y personal opinion—which is not to be taken in the negative way—dapat may sarili silang contest. May Mrs. Universe, may Lesbian Universe, may Tranny Universe,” she said. “There is room for so much. Oo, mga category na ganoon, ganyan. Tapos, kasi even sa Mrs. Universe, andaming magaganda diyan na nanganak na. Ok lang yun,” she added.
It can be recalled that it was on September 2022 when Miss Universe opened its doors for married candidates and those who have a child or children.
Her controversial remark earned reactions from the netizens. Here are the comments of some netizens:
Meanwhile, three single mothers will join this year’s Miss Universe Philippines namely; Eileen Gonzales, Clare Dacanay, at Joemay-An Leo. The coronation night will be held at Mall of Asia Arena this coming May 10.
