May sagot naman kaming natanggap sa scandal ng Miss Earth Canada na si Jaime VandenBerg na ibinigay ng Miss Earth PR na si Mylene Villamater-Misolas sa aming photographer na si JR Noses.
“To the other Miss Earth 2018 Delegates who allegedly experienced sexual harassment, WHY NOW? WHY ONLY AFTER THE COMPETITION? You can support Miss Canada when she backed out and you can issue your own statement so Miss Earth can do something about it. BUT why only now? Afraid that the org will not place you in semis? I thought you believed in women empowerment but because of what you did, You did not only tarnish the reputation of Miss Earth Organization but also the reputation of other delegates who participated. You have plenty of time to coordinate with Miss Earth to raised your concern about it but you did nothing.
“The sponsor you were telling that offer you sexual favors, I have been in many Miss Earth events and right after the concern of Miss Canada was raised, Miss Earth did not allow him to go in any of the other events. Not you were claiming that Miss Earth/Lorraine and Peachy did nothing to it. They take action, THEY DID!!!. They handled the situation. Not until coronation that he is present to a public event where they do not have a control at all.
“To Miss Canada, England and Guam… and to other delegates who experienced the same, I challenge you to talked with Miss Earth and your national director about the situation instead of posting on to social media and ask the public for sympathy because it is not women empowerment at all. You only wanted a public humiliation and to tarnish reputation most especially the affected one, the Miss Earth Organization. I ask you to go hand in hand with Miss Earth to resolve this issue so that No other delegates will experience the same in the coming years.
“MISS EARTH IS FOR WOMEN EMPOWERMENT thus CONDEMN ANY FORM OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT!!
“DO NOT BLAME GAME NOW!! SPEAK FOR THE TRUTH AS IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO SET YOU FREE, TALK TO MISS EARTH, NOT IN SOCIAL MEDIA!!”
Melanie, Miss Earth Air
Masaya ang Miss Earth Austria na si Melanie Mader dahil wagi siyang Miss Earth Air.
Happy siya sa kanyang karanasan sa pageant. Dedma siya sa kontrobersiya ngayon ng ibang kandidata. (Roldan Castro)
