  • Hindi nakaligtas si Miss Universe-Canada Nova Stevens sa mga panunukso ng online bashers dahil sa kanyang skin color. 

    Ibinahagi ng beauty queen, na tubong South Sudan sa Africa ang pamilya, sa kanyang Instagram account ang ilang mga masasakit na komento na kanyang natanggap. Marami sa mga iyon ay gamit ang wikang Filipino. Pero hindi niya sinabing mga Pinoy ang kanyang bashers.

    Paglilinaw ng racial justice activist sa caption, "I was not sure of the language these comments are from until reading some of the comments. In case it’s not clear. I don’t think all Filipinos are racist. That would be ridiculous to say."

    Katunayan, ang isa sa mga official gown designer ni Nova, na isa ring fashion model, ay ang kilalang Pinoy fashion designer na si Maxie Cinco.

    Gayonpaman, malinaw ang mensahe ni Nova at payo na rin para sa mga tulad niyang hinuhusgahan dahil lamang sa kulay ng balat


    Aniya sa unang bahagi ng kanyang caption, "With all that has been going on in the world, ‘black lives matter,’ ‘Asians are human,’ you would think this would bring us together. Instead, looks like some people are still stuck in their ignorant and racist ideologies."

    Pag-amin niya, "I’m really disappointed with some Pageant fans from certain countries. Your hate takes away the fun and enjoyment from this once in a lifetime experience. Is it really that difficult to spread love instead of hate?

    "No one is saying you HAVE to support all contestants, all we’re saying is that you support your delegate without bringing others down. You don’t need to dim someone’s light in order for you to shine."

    Diin pa niya, "The world is evolving, people are realizing that beauty is not exclusive to one specific group of people. The definition of beauty applies to all; because beauty can be seen in different shapes, shades and sizes.

    "Please see the beauty that is in this world. We don’t need to look the same, we just need to treat each other the same."

    Nagpaliwanag pa nang husto si Nova sa isa pang post. Mababasa naman sa litrato ang ilan sa mga papuri na kanyang natatanggap, na karamihan ay mula sa mga Pinoy.

    Saad niya, "To my Filipino fans: I’m sorry if my previous post caused you any harm. My post wasn’t intended to incite more hate; rather shed light on the toxicity that sometimes hails from fans (from all over the world).

    "The last thing I want is for anyone to experience hate so please don’t bash or generalize the Filipino fans; not all are racist. Some of my closest friends who also happen to be some of the nicest people I know are Filipino.

    "In every group of people; whether black, white, green, yellow, red, purple, there are always a few bad apples. I know for a fact there is more good than evil in this world; Which is why it’s important to shed light on the darkness so that our collective light can illuminate the world."

    Samantala, si Rabiya Mateo naman ang pambato ng Pilipinas sa Miss Universe, na gaganapin sa May 16, 2021 sa United States.
