A victim of the New People’s Army wrote an open letter to Miss Universe winners Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray who both expressed opposition on the controversial anti-terror bill.
In a lengthy Facebook post, Drei Toledo told Wurtzbach and Catriona that they made insensitive tweets by telling the people that they’re against the anti-terror bill.
According to her, she didn’t expect that both beauty queens she admired would oppose the measure.
“You both probably won’t even waste time reading this. I have reached out to your painfully insensitive Twitter posts using your Miss Universe platform to spread so much ignorance about the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020. It’s not that I expected for either of you to respond anyway. I’m aware beauty queens have canned spiels all the time. You have people managing you and training you to say this or that, whilst you wish to project to the entire world that you are both confidently beautiful with a heart and that you wish to use your influence for the greater good,” Toledo wrote.
“However, how can you be sincere in all that when you have effectively used your platform to help CPP-NPA-NDF Communist-Terrorist propagandists to further oppress the REAL victims of CPP-NPA-NDF violence?” she added.
“How can you be so cruel?”
She then asked how the beauty queens could sleep at night after they disregarded the victims of the communist group, including children who were forced to arm themselves.
“Have you been accustomed to so much privilege that you no longer care about the real victims of terrorism? Did someone gift you with something so incredibly expensive that you feel subconsciously indebted to suddenly echo that person’s #JunkTerrorBill propaganda?” she said.
“Do you both think you suddenly sound so “enlightened” because you allowed CPP-NPA operatives to exploit your influence to protect covert terrorists in the Philippines? Did you naively think you could mask your crass materialism by posting #WOKE statements embedded and circulated by CPP-NPA-NDF Communist-Terrorist propagandists?” she added.
“Oh, is it because there are no more photo ops to be had? No more beauty pageant titles to win? No big advertisements and contracts to be gained?”
Before ending her post, she expressed sadness that the two beauty queens she admired supported the communist group.
“I feel sad I even genuinely admired both of you and celebrated with all the Filipinos all over the world when you won the title of Miss Universe. You are no different from the Oligarchs and the Deep State that fund and protect the untouchable leaders of the CPP-NPA-NDF Communist-Terrorist network,”
“You have sold your souls to the devil, and yet you look like angels. May God enlighten you. Truly. May you wake up from your deep slumber,”
She also criticized the ‘wokes‘ who wanted to protect communist group from the controversial measure.
Drei is the estranged daughter of alleged NPA official Antonio Lim Toledo.
