Lillie Schlabach Are you kidding me?#ImeldaBautistaSchweighart before you open your pretty 👄 get the facts first. You are supposed to promote your country to the rest of the world but you are doing exactly the opposite by making that nasty statement. Why?..... because #PresidentDuterte represents the Philippines 🇵🇭 and its people including you. You are disgusting! You are using your Filipino citizenship to join a beauty pageant abroad and thus representing your country. You might not even know exactly what are your duties being a representative of that pageant. Poor girl, you should have known better. You just destroyed future opportunities for other girls who are wishing to represent the country, the #Philippines in different beauty pageants abroad. You REALLY SCREWED UP BIGTIME girl!!!
