In another tweet, Wurtzbach also urged people to stop bashing Medina.

“So proud of Maxine. She represented the Philippines so well. And guys, she wanted it just as much as you did. Let’s not bash our kababayan [fellow Filipino],” she wrote; getting over 32,000 favorites and more than 10, 000 retweets.

Following Wurtzbach’s tweet, a  lot of Twitter users started posting messages of support to Medina.
