Miss Universe Philippines contestant Sandra Lemonon became a trending topic after sharing a series of cryptic posts on Instagram Stories yesterday, October 25.
Taguig's representative said that she will be announcing something "big" about the recently concluded pageant. She said, "The truth always comes out."
"Karma is real," she continued, "[Tea time] soon because we deserve justice."
This was followed by yet another controversial post where she said that "real queens play fair and don't cheat."
Netizens believe that this was in response to Miss Universe Philippines 2011 and MUP National Director Shamcey Supsup's Instagram Story about true queens accepting defeat.
“To bear defeat with dignity, to accept criticism with poise, to receive honors with humility – these are the marks of a true QUEEN,” Shamcey wrote.
Hours later, Sandra wrote in her own platform, "Only people without a clear conscience should be afraid of the truth."
She followed it up just today, October 26, by writing, "Sometimes you will have to face [much] hate before people get to understand what really is happening behind-the-scenes."
"I am gathering all my strength to speak up and share the truth. All I want for us to improve for the next batch of ladies who will be in our shoes and I do not want them to face what we did. Because we can do better and we DESERVE better," she added.
Sandra and Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray were batchmates in Miss World Philippines 2016 and Binibining Pilipinas 2018.
She finished in the Top 16 at the inaugural Miss Universe Philippines pageant, where Miss Iloilo Rabiya Mateo was hailed as the winner.
