Kinalimutan na si Celeste! Ilang netizens, pinuna ang mga nakiki-ride sa pagkapanalo ni R’Bonney Gabriel: “She is Miss USA”

Some netizens criticized the pageant fans who were claiming credit for the victory of Filipino-American R’Bonney Gabriel in the Miss Universe 2022.

While thousands celebrated the victory of Gabriel because she’s half Filipino, some netizens reminded the Filipino pageant fans that she was not representing the Philippines and carrying the American flag during the competition.

Netizen @QMotherGothel criticized media outlets for allegedly riding on the victory of Gabriel.

She also pointed out that the media already forgot about representative of the Philippines to the Miss Universe Celeste Cortesi who fail to enter top 16.

“Jusq here comes the adobo/sinigang questions, asking ppl to speak Tagalog words, yadah yadah. Kakahiya Philippine media outlets parang mga langaw na nagpipiyesta basta may dugong Pinoy ang sumikat abroad.” the netizen said.

“She is Miss USA and not Miss Philippines for a reason. And how do you think this makes our candidate feel? Mga user kayo ng taon! Forda click bait and clout as always, Philippine media.” she added.

Netizen @ytsvan also urged the netizens to stop ‘pinoy pride’ mentality.

“Tigilan po natin ang ‘pinoy pride’ mentality dahil lang may dugong pinoy. At the end of the day, she’s wearing a different sash at hindi naman sya uuwi sa Pinas para magvictory parade sa kalsada.” he said.

@dalerivera also shared that he was fed up by the Filipino pride mentality.

“Gaano kalawak ba ang pagkaintindi natin sa katagang Pinoy Pride? Kadalasan kasi, hindi na nailulugar sa tama. Nakaririndi na. Kahit may dugong Pilipino pa siya, nasa Estados Unidos ang korona. She represented the United States. So, let us not take advantage of that credit.” he wrote.

However, some defended their decision to be proud of Gabriel, saying that even the beauty queen acknowledge that she is half Filipina.

Gabriel’s father R’Bon “Bon” Gabriel left the Philippines at the age of 19 to study in America where he met his wife Dana Walker.
