Miss Earth Philippines Imelda Schweighart has denied reports that she apologized for her Hitler remark on a Facebook Live post she did earlier this week.
Imelda says her Facebook account was hacked shortly after the she went live on Facebook to make such remarks.
Despite much social media backlash and criticism, Miss Earth Philippines Imelda Schweighart says her “words remain the same”. “I don’t intend to retract my remarks” – she added.
Bandera reports on her supposed apology which explains how Imelda’s choice of words comes in context of her upbringing.
Upon posting the Facebook Live post, both Duterte supporters and non-Duterte supporters were quick to point out Imelda’s mistake. The context of Imelda’s intention was lost, of course, as the video and issue went viral.“I was just not able to explain what I really meant further in Facebook Live because my mind was occupied with the other delegates I want to capture on my Facebook Live cover.”
