Reigning Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of the Philippines took to social media again to criticize her bashers who said that she has not done anything to find a “cure” for AIDS.
“Just to get some things straight. I haven’t forgotten about my advocacy, ok? I’m so tired of people complaining that I haven’t found ‘the cure’ for HIV when clearly I said I would raise awareness. I’m not magically gonna come up with a potion that cures everything,” said Wurtzbach on Instagram as she posed in a bikini to get the attention of her bashers.
Wurtzbach, 27, also said that she does not have to post her activities on social media all the time because she was busy with work.
“But are you really getting the point of my message during the final Q&A? I said I would raise awareness. Putting the spotlight on it so we can start talking about it. Just like the during the competition, I wasn’t posting my everyday pageant activities and that upset a lot of fans,” she said.
“So before you go saying that I haven’t done anything, the mere fact that you’re talking about how little I am doing charity work for HIV/AIDS, isn’t that awareness in itself? You’re thinking about it, right? Talking about it, correct? Bashing me in the process BUT still getting the message out there. I don’t have to spell it out. Oh and here’s a bikini photo. Just so I get your attention,” she said.
Few days ago, Wurtzbach was seen as part of Senator Manny Pacquiao’s entourage in Las Vegas in his fight against Jessie Vargas. Pacquiao won the WBO welterweight championship.
Wurtzbach, who is romantically linked to Filipino-Swiss F1 driver Marlon Stockinger, is set to relinquish her crown in Manila on January 30, 2017.
