Rhian Ramos, Kylie Padilla Express Distaste Over Alleged Disrespect Of Miss Universe Owner To Michelle Dee

Despite her non-inclusion to the Top 5, Michelle was brought to Mexico to promote the Miss Universe Organization

Rhian Ramos and Kylie Padilla aired their annoyance over the now-viral video of Miss Universe owner Anne Jakrajutatip who was allegedly disrespecting Philippines’ Michelle Dee. 

The video shows Anne pulling Michelle towards the camera to say something. Anne is speaking in Thai the entire duration. 

While it seems like there is nothing wrong with the video, the phrase “move on” was repeatedly uttered by the Thai business mogul. 

Some netizens say that Anne was encouraging Michelle to say that Thailand needs to get over with the Thai delegate Anntonia Porsild’s first runner-up finish. 

However, according to other translations from netizens, Anne was allegedly saying that she would write a song about “moving on” so as Filipinos may get over with Michelle’s non-inclusion to the Top 5.

Anne even clarified that Filipinos have to put the issue to rest since there was no manipulation nor cheating involved in the results of the 72nd Miss Universe. 

Close friend to Michelle, Rhian then could not help but take her infuriation to her Instagram account. 

Reposting the viral clip on his IG story, Rhian says that Anne’s gesture did not sit well with her. In fact, she is disgusted at how the video made her feel. 

She says,“I don’t like how this looks. My stomach is turning. Buti marespeto yung kaibigan ko, eh sila? 

“Ewan. Kayo na lang ang humusga. Tap niyo for the full, uncomfortable video.”

Actress Kylie Padilla, another close friend to Michelle also could not help but speak about the seeming exploitation made towards Michelle. 

Just a day after the video went viral, Kylie took to X (formerly Twitter) her sentiment.

She tweets, “Why take her to Mexico if you’re just going to bully her? My queen is just wasting her energy and power frankly, on all of you UGH.” 

Michelle has replied to Kylie’s tweet with a short, “Ily.”

Michelle Dee is currently in Mexico together with the Miss Universe royal court to do some media appearances and promotions. It was announced during the pageant that the organization will bring the pageant next year to Mexico. 

Michelle for her part had been active in their first media guesting—only that she was pulled out of the scene because she was feeling under the weather. 

This was confirmed by the Miss Universe organization, who says in a statement that the hectic schedule took a toll on Michelle. Even Michelle says in a circulating screenshot that she had to leave before anyone else since she, “Suddenly felt so lightheaded.”

“Don’t feel so well after that first media guesting.

“Love, empathy & kindness over everything,” she finishes.

On November 21, Michelle published on X her short words of gratitude. While it remains precise, the beauty queen rendered it all too cryptically. 

She writes, “Salamat. [praying hands emoji] Alam niyo na bakit.”
