Todo suporta si Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray sa mga kandidata ng Miss Universe 2020 laban sa cyberbullying.

Sa kanyang Instagram Stories ngayong araw, May 16, ibinahagi ng pang-apat na Miss Universe ng bansa ang campaign video ng Miss Universe Organization laban sa hate comments online.

Nakalagay sa caption sa original video: "Cyberbullying

"These delegates share the impact of negative words online and urge everyone to focus on kindness."

Laman nito ang ilang testimonials ng mga kandidata sa timpalak na nakaranas ng online bashing.

Ayon kay Catriona, hindi na bago sa kanya ang mga ganito dahil noong reigning Bb. Pilipinas Universe pa lamang siya ay naranasan na niyang makatanggap ng mga hate comments online.

Hanggang ngayon daw ay may nababasa pa siyang mga masasakit na salitang ibinabato sa kanya.

Sabi ni Catriona, "So many use social media as a consequence-free way to attack, put down and degrade others.

“It started during my Binibini journey and escalated during my Miss Universe journey.

“I receive hate comments even today.”

Giit ni Catriona, hindi maganda ang pagsabihan ng mga masasakit na salita ang isang tao para lamang may maibahagi kang opinyon.

Dagdag pa niya, “It is never okay to degrade someone to harass them in the name of sharing your ‘opinion.'

"WORDS HAVE POWER. To both put down and pull up. I hope we would choose the latter.”

MISS UNIVERSE CANADA

Isa sa mga nakaranas ng cyberbullying sa mga Miss Universe candidates ay si Miss Universe Canada 2020 Nova Stevens.

Kaya naman siya ang unang kandidata na nagsasalita sa video.

Kapansin-pansing mga Pinoy ang karamihan sa nanglait sa kanya.

Tinawag pa siya nitong "nognog," "katakot," "akala ko engkanto," at "Tostadong tostado na nga, NASUNOG pa."

May mga English translation ang mga screenshots ng bashers na ibinahagi niya kaya naintindihan niya ito.

Kaagad naman niyang inalmahan ang taong aniya ay may mga "ignorant and racist ideologies."

Bahagi pa ng kanyang post sa Instagram noong May 4, 2021, "Here we go again. I’ve been receiving this picture in my inbox a lot lately.

"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."

Nilinaw din naman niya sa isa pang sumunod na post na hindi siya galit sa mga Filipino pageant fans.

Saad pa ni Stevens, “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."
