Pia Wurtzbach

For those criticizing, bashing, and throwing shade directed at Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, please redirect your frustrations somewhere else.

First and foremost, let’s reiterate that Pia did not steal the crown. It was hers. Circumstances such as that horrible mix up, deprived a winner of the crowning moment she so deserve. She trained for years, she failed three times before she was given the chance to represent the country, and she triumphed in the end.

Do not blame her for something that she had no control of. I feel sorry for Colombia, I can symphatize. But with what the other girls did? (Yes, girls.) It is too childish and disrespectful to go out of your way to question Pia’s win. The way you shouted Colombia to her face, I can accept that. Maybe you were just consoling Adriana. The fact that you asked Pia to “take a step back”, I can accept that. Maybe it just stings too much and you were preventing another breakdown.

BUT DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, SAY THAT PIA DOES NOT DESERVE THE CROWN. BECAUSE SHE WALKED IN THAT COMPETITION HUNGRY FOR VICTORY, SHE WALKED IN THAT COMPETITION WORKING HER ASS OFF, SHE WALKED IN THAT COMPETITION WITH A SOLE PURPOSE OF GIVING HONOR TO HER COUNTRY.

When everybody else was consoling Colombia, and forgiving Harvey, Pia received hate comments. Pia Wurtzbach, thank you for handling this unfortunate situation with such humility and grace. Thank you.
