BINITIWAN na ni Miss World Philippines 2021 2nd Princess na si Ganiel Krishnan ang kanyang korona hindi dahil sa na-bully siya ni Domz Ramos, ang official swimwear designer ng Binibining Pilipinas, sa Instagram Stories pagkatapos ng coronation night kundi dahil babalik siya sa kanyang trabaho bilang reporter ng TV Patrol.
Base sa post ni Ganiel sa kanyang Instagram account nitong Martes ng gabi, ”I regret to inform you of my decision to relinquish my Miss World Philippines Second Princess 2021 title and consequently resign from the Miss World Organization effective immediately.
“As you very well know, I have a thriving career as a lifestyle and entertainment news reporter in ABS-CBN before I entered the competition and have never kept my intentions to go back to it a secret, regardless of the outcome of the pageant.
“While I am deeply honored to have been named a Princess in this year’s MWP search, my contractual obligations with the network will not allow me to serve two masters. Realizing this led me into making a decision to pursue the dream which will have the greater impact to actually serving my fellow Filipinos and that is through broadcasting.
“I wish to thank you, Mr. Arnold L. Vegafria, as well as the entire MWP Organization, for taking good care of us and providing all of pageant participants wonderful experiences that we will surely cherish for a lifetime. I also wish my queen sisters the best of luck in their respective endeavors in the future.
“I truly am grateful to have joined Miss World Philippines 2021, which also marks my last foray into the world of pageantry. It was one big learning experience for me which, I know, will help me score even greater triumphs in the future.”
Bago nagbitiw si Ganiel ay naging biktima siya ng bullying ni Domz sa Ipinost nito sa kanyang IG stories.
”MS WORLD OR NOTHING DAW, EH. OH AYAN 2NDRUNNER-UP JIVAHHHH,” nang-iinis na post nito.
Pero bumawi agad ng, ”BUT I THINK SHE DESERVES A CROWN O JIVAH.”
Walang binanggit na pangalan si Domz, pero halata naman kung sino ang pinatutungkulan nito kundi ang TV Patrol Star Patroller-turned-beauty-queen na si Ganiel.
Post ni Domz, ”Sino ba ang nanalong 2nd Princess sa katatapos na 2021 Miss World Philippines?
Ini-repost ni Ganiel sa Instagram account niya ang unang comment ni Domz in artcard form kasama ang larawan ng swimwear designer na kinunan niya sa original post ng netizen na nangangalang @jerome0420.
Ang caption ni Ganiel,” UNNECESSARY. INSENSITIVE. BULLY.”
Kabilang din sa post ni Ganiel ang analysis post ni netizen @jerome0420.
Say ni @jerome0420. ”If there is one thing that was made clear after the recently concluded Miss World Philippines pageant is that Domz Ramos is a bully. Even if he didn’t mention Ganiel Krishnan ‘s name in his post, it was clear as day that he was throwing shade at the beauty queen, using her famed answer during the MWP screening ‘MWP or nothing’ and even added her MWP placement.
“This is quite alarming because it has become a culture amongst pinoy pageant fans to bash and bully candidates without considering the trauma it might cause to the bullied. As the swimsuit provider of Binibining Pilipinas, it also stains the reputation of the organization because of his affiliation so I am hoping that he will be reprimanded or dropped because of his bullying ways.
“It’s high time that we call out these people who find satisfaction over other people’s heartbreak and misery. What bothers me most is that he doesn’t even show remorse because this isn’t the first time he bullied a candidate. It discredits the sacrifice and hardwork of the candidates and no one, regardless of his affiliation with any organization, has the right to invalidate the dream of any filipina by bullying.
Halos 6k na likes ang post na ito ni Ganiel at base sa mga nabasa naming komento ay sinusuportahan siya ng netizens, mga kaibigan, kakilala sa showbiz industry, at kapwa beauty queens.
Anyway, nakarating na kay Domz ang sentimyento ni Ganiel at marami ring netizens ang nag-call out sa kanya kaya kaagad siyang nag-post ng ‘official statement.’
Naunang humingi ng paumanhin sa mga na-offend niya si Domz lalo kay Ganiel.
Ani Domz sa pamamagitan ng kanyang @drswimph Instagram account ay taken out of context ang kanyang sinabi.
“It has come to my attention that a post I uploaded after the Miss World Philippines pageant on October 4 is being passed around online and generating hate on my person.
“First, I apologize to everyone who has been hurt by my remarks, especially Ms. Ganiel Krishnan @ganielkrish, her pageant camp and fans, and indirectly, the Binibining Pilipinas organization. While I did not deny posting the statement, I would like to clarify that it was taken out of context.
“The statement in the screenshot read, ‘Ms. World or nothing daw eh. Oh, ‘yan, 2nd Runner Up. Jivahhh. What critics failed to share, however, was the post that followed, which read, ‘But I think she deserves a crown. Oh jivah.
“By itself, the initial comment could be construed as insensitive and my way of bashing Ms. Krishnan. Even as I agree that it might have appeared as such, I deny that it was meant to insult or abuse her. On the contrary, it was made out of my disappointment that she did not win a major title.”
Ipinagdiinan pa ni Domz na matagal na siyang fan ni Ganiel simula pa nang manalo ang dalaga sa Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia Pacific International in 2016 at umasang sasali siya sa Binibining Pilipinas.
“My preference for Binibining Pilipinas over other national pageants is no secret anymore as I have been providing the swimsuits for BBP for years now (again, I apologize to the organization for having been dragged into this). Having been a fan of Ms. Ganiel ever since she won Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia Pacific International in 2016, I have long hoped that she would join BBP. I believe she would have easily won a crown, particularly Miss International. The statement I made in the now-viral screenshot came from this. It was not meant to put her down. It was simply my hopeful way of saying, ‘Sana mag-BBP ka.’
“Again, I apologize for my carelessness and beg for the forgiveness of those who have been hurt and offended, and pray that people would take my sentiment as a whole and not condemn me over this matter for one screenshot. This has been a humbling learning experience for me.
“Sincerely, Domz Ramos.”
Tsinek namin ang comments sa post na ito ni Domz kung may sagot ba si Ganiel pero wala pa sa kasalukuyan at wala ring post kung tinanggap niya ang apology ng taong nam-bully sa kanya.
Samantala, may mga nagpayo kay Domz na dapat i-check muna niyang mabuti ang sinasabi bago mag-post.
Anang netizen, ”As per Queen Karen Ibasco said, examine what you will say/type before doing so. Hindi yung basta nakuda ka ee sige lang ng sige. You have your platform. Use it to empower women hindi yung ikaw pa nangungunang i-down sila.”
