Miss Universe Vietnam 2017 Nguyen Thi Loan took to Instagram to apologize and explain her side on why she wrote “ugly” on Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa’s photo on the Instagram page of a pageant website in 2016.
She explained, “A year ago, when I was checking information on social media, I saw a picture of Kylie, Miss International 2016. Just by natural reaction, I thought that it was not a good picture of her and I commented based on my honest feelings. You would agree with me that sometimes, even the most beautiful person could have a non-photogenic picture… due to the angle, lighting, or a wrong moment. Perhaps I could have stated things more clearly but due to my limited English, I made you all misunderstand me.”
She also revealed the reason why it is only now that she spoke up about the issue. "I decided to keep silent because I did not want to cause any more misunderstanding or accidentally hurt anyone's feelings (including Kylie's ones if she would have noticed about that)," she wrote.
The beauty queen then expressed apology about what happened. “I am so sorry for any inconvenience caused. I sincerely apologize for hurting Kylie and you by accident. This is a lesson for me and I will take more care in the future,” she stated.
