Pia Wurtzbach addresses ‘nasty comments’ on social media: ‘Please do not pull other people down’


Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach took to Instagram to address the negativity and divisive comments that have surfaced on her social media.

In a statement shared in the comment section of one of her Instagram posts, Pia urged her followers to refrain from engaging in harmful behavior, stressing the importance of mutual respect.

“Hey everyone! ? I’ve been seeing all these nasty comments, below the belt name calling, and accusations aimed towards others. I think we all need to be reminded that this bickering, pitting women against each other, and pointing fingers isn’t right,” the actress-model wrote.

The beauty queen acknowledged the prevalence of online disputes and the need for a more supportive and peaceful online community.

“Please stop fighting. I want to ask everyone, my supporters especially, as I always did even years ago during my Binibini or Miss Universe days, please do not pull other people down, lest to defend me,” Pia called on to her followers and netizens alike.

“That is not what I want. And that’s not what I stand for,” she stressed her commitment to promoting a positive environment.

Pia encouraged individuals to appreciate the efforts and hard work of others, recognizing that there is a lot of space in the world for everyone to “shine”.

“Let’s respect each other and the work being put in by everyone — and not ruin it just because people online can’t get along. There is so much room in this world for everyone to shine. ✨,” Pia concluded her message.
