Maastricht University lecturer slams Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach: “Stop using your title to MISINFORM people!”

A lecturer of one of the top European universities and a political blogger couldn’t hide her disappointment over the statement of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach about the anti-terror bill.

In a statement, Wurtzbach made a rare comment about politics and expressed opposition over the said controversial measure, saying that

“I’ll be honest, I never really liked commenting about politics simply cos I felt like I [didn’t] know enough. I [wasn’t] confident enough to speak up… I also was never really a fan of tweeting (Im barely online here) but I realized that I need my voice back…and I need to use it… Sa lahat ng nangyayari ngayon sa Pilipinas at sa mundo.. overwhelming. Diba? Parang di mo alam kung maiiyak ka o magagalit. Parang pakiramdam mo minsan powerless ka. Parang sasabog yung puso mo. Yung feeling na parang may gusto kang sabihin. May kailangan kang sabihin,” the beauty queen said.

“Pero narealize ko na hindi ako powerless… kasi hindi ako nagiisa. #JunkTerrorBill #MassTestingNowPH #ActivismIsNotTerrorism,” she added.

The said statements of Wurtzbach disappointed political blogger Sass Rogando Sasot, who accused the beauty queen of spreading misinformation about the bill.

“Pia Wurtzbach please stop using your Miss Universe title to MISINFORM people. There’s nothing in the anti-terrorism bill that says that activism is terrorism. There’s nothing in that bill that can even be interpreted by any sane person to mean that activism is terrorism,” Sasot said.

She even called the attention of the Miss Universe organization.

“Dear Miss Universe: What can you say about Miss Universe 2015 spreading misinformation about a Philippine law that aims to combat terrorism? Ms Pia Wurtzbach has been promoting the idea that the the law will make activism terrorism, which is not the case at all,” she posted.

The lecturer also mentioned some sponsors of Wurtzbach, informing them about the ‘irresponsible’ statement of the beauty queen.

Aside from Wurtzbach, Sasot also mentioned Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, beauty queen Patch Magtanong and actress Heart Evangelista.
