But Ruffa just let it be and has kept the photo on her feed.

Ruffa was Bb. Pilipinas World in 1993, and was crowned as second princess at the Miss World pageant in the same year.
She is currently appearing in the Kapamilya teleserye, Love Thy Woman.
In an interview last December 2019, the actress disclosed Lorin had undergone some preliminary pageant workshops with Jonas Gaffud.
Jonas is a pageant mentor and co-founder of Aces and Queens, a training camp for aspiring beauty queens.
However, Ruffa also revealed that Lorin is is set on going to college first.
The young woman, in fact, took up a summer pre-college course at "one of the top-ranked economics institutes in the world" in California, U.S.A., before celebrating her 16th birthday in 2019.
Lorin plans to pursue a business course in college.
