“Miss Philippines is Miss World? What a joke! I did not know those maids have anything else in them Ha Ha Ha.”
A certain Devina Dediva from Singapore, allegedly posted this comment in her Facebook profile. Now, Filipino netizens, in retaliation created their own page as a campaign against the woman. The description of the page said, “Never, even a single Filipino, deserved to be looked down… This page is for all the people who are victims of discrimination and racism.”
Dediva’s Facebook status drew a lot of disagreeing comments from people all over the social networking site, but she continued criticizing Megan Young and Filipinos regardless. “Those of you who wrote negatively to my comment, I got one question — who are you to stop my words when the world is democratic in freedom of speech?” she wrote.
“They are poor, smelly from cleaning toilets and uneducated,” she replied when someone commented that Filipinos are ‘cute, humble and honest’. “They are less privileged everywhere, what a joke those people cleaning our toilets won Miss World!” Dediva added.
“Maids are not to be looked upon. They are mostly filthy maids and will be only of that status. End of story,” she concluded when someone commented that she should not look down upon others.
The Facebook page against Dediva has gathered almost 9000 likes as of today, many of whom are demanding and apology. So far, as of the writing of this article, none has been made.
