Binibining Pilipinas candidate Maria Isabela Galeria from Sorsogoon explained the ‘microphone’ moment she shared on stage with host Anne Curtis after finding out that it has been going viral online.
In an Instagram post, Miss Sorsogon addressed the issue and clarified that she had no bad intentions towards Anne who was left holding the microphone for her during the Q&A portion.
She wrote: “So today I woke up as a meme.
I honestly had no bad intentions towards @annecurtissmith I was just really nervous and was concentrating to answer the question being asked.
Anne is a superstar and was very kind, polite and gracious to all of us. It was a pleasure and inspiring to be in her presence?”
Anne then assured Miss Sorsogon that she has nothing to worry about as she commented: “Hey gorgeous! Don’t worry about it and don’t mind the memes. All of you were nervous and had to concentrate on one of the most crucial parts of the pageant – the Q & A. It was an honour to be of service to you and all the beautiful candidates. Ganyan lang talaga minsan. May mga kulit moments na hindi palalampasin ng Madlang People. Congratulations on your performance last night @mariaisabelagaleria”
