The approaching Miss Universe pageant in the Philippines is swiftly becoming the talk of the town.
However, Philippine's bet Maxine Medina faced controversy as some netizens expressed their disapproval for a grammar mistake she committed in an interview. Since then, she has been at the receiving end of criticism and bashing from netizens.
Fortunately, many still expressed full support for the candidate and among these is child star Awra Briguela.
Asked about the issue, the young comedian-actor shared his excitement for the upcoming pageant.
"Super interesado po. Siyempre kay Maxine, Philippines eh. Pilipinas ang sa atin. Sa ibang bansa pa ba tayo eh nandito na 'yung Philippines? Dito na tayo."
He even admitted feeling hurt for Maxine due to the hate she had been receiving on social media.
According to the young star, as Filipinos we should support Maxine rather than bash her.
"Nasasaktan po ako, kasi Pilipino po si Maxine, Pilipino po tayong lahat. Dapat suportahan natin ang kandidata nating lahat sa Pilipinas. Bakit kailangan pang-i-bash?"
He even emphasized that he would not support any other candidates aside from the Philippines bet.
"Wala na, wala na. Philippines lang talaga."
He even praised Maxine saying she is "brainy, matalino, magaling mag-walk."
He hoped to watch the pageant if given the opportunity.
"Super gusto kong manood, gusto ko 'yung mahawakan ko sila, gusto ko ako ang magpapasa ng korona, echos!" Awra said in jest.
