Inamin ni Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo-Wurtzbach na na-bully siya noong bata pa siya dahil sa kanyang hitsura.
Isa ang bullying sa mga tinalakay ni Pia sa kanyang inspirational speech sa harap ng mga estudyante ng International Language Academy of Canada, sa Toronto, Canada, kamakalawa.
Pahayag ng Pinay beauty queen, base sa ulat ng ABS-CBN North America Bureau, “I experienced bullying in different forms. I experienced it in school.
“I felt like I was the odd one out growing up in the province because I was half-Filipino and half-German, so I wasn't full-blooded Filipina and, of course, I was the tallest in my class and I felt kind of awkward.”
Maging noong nag-artista na siya ay may mga kritisismo pa ring ibinabato sa kanya.
“I went through an awkward phase and I had some kids making fun of me for that and also being in the public eye I was an actress and then there was a lot of scrutiny with that as well.”
At kahit ngayong nakoronahan na siya bilang Miss Universe, mayroon pa ring mga nambabatikos kay Pia, subalit hindi raw siya nagpapadala sa mga ito.
Kaya naman isa ang anti-cyberbullying sa mga ikinakampanyang cause ni Pia.
Sa speech ni Pia, ibinahagi niya ang isang solusyon upang maiwasan ang pambu-bully.
“What we need here and the rest of the world is a change of values… to accept our differences.
“That is a fact of life. And the more we become accepting, the more that we become tolerant. And the more we care.”
