Ethel Booba answers the Miss Universe 2018 questions in her own way.
Comedienne Ethel Booba tried to answer the questions given to the Miss Universe Top 5 on Twitter and she once again won the Internet with her “charot” answers. The top five consisting of Miss Puerto Rico, Miss Vietnam, Miss South Africa, Miss Philippines, and Miss Venezuela were given a minute to answer controversial world issues.
Miss Puerto Rico got the question, “Why is freedom of the press important?”
Ethel answered and said, “Some journalists are under threat because of telling the truth. Let us protect them and their work. However, when one’s freedom abuses or hurt others by spreading fake news like what other[s] did, it’s not freedom of speech or expression, it’s an attack on [others’] freedom. Charot!”
Miss Vietnam was asked, “Do you think the #MeToo movement has gone too far?”
Ethel said, “If we want equality don’t ask for special treatment. There are some who [are] hiding in being feminist which is [becoming a] man hater. There are some who use that as weapon to prioritize us or giving special treatment. #MeToo would like to protect us women and I respect that. Charot!”
Miss South Africa had to answer the question, “Do you think countries should limit the number of refugees allowed across their borders?”
“Every country has rights to choose who to accept and not to accept. Without borders there’d be no nation. We’re in no way obligated to help refugees but if we’re blessed by God of vast richness and success maybe it’s time to repay it by helping those who are in need. Charot!” Ethel said.
Miss Venezuela got the question, “What would you say to those who believe that pageants are archaic and anti-feminist?”
“Beauty pageants isn’t (sic) archaic especially in this age of radical feminism where women are told that being feminine isn’t a good thing and just being superficial/petty. You can be strong and independent while embracing the traditional beauty standard for women. Charot!” Ethel wrote.
Philippine bet Catriona Gray had to answer the question, “What is your opinion on the legalization of marijuana?”
Like Catriona, Ethel also emphasized the medical benefits of marijuana. “There are several studies that highlight the benefits of marijuana. If regulated properly, we could legalize it [and] use it to cure illnesses. It’s like a knife, that may either cut the meat or the throat of a man; it may be his food or his poison, his exercise or his peril. Charot!”
When Miss South Africa, Miss Venezuela, and Miss Philippines got into the top three, Ethel also had a funny comment about Catriona’s winning answer, “I would bring this aspect as a Miss Universe to see situations with a silver lining and to assess where I could give something, where I could provide something as a spokesperson.”
“Tagal kong tumira dyan sa Tondo di ko nabalitaan yang silver lining. Foil ba yan? Charot!”
The comedienne also noticed how Miss Albania projected herself onstage and said, “Hoy @MissUniverse bigyan nyo ng tribute ang mas vaklang umawra na si Miss Albania. Charot!”
In another tweet she said, “Parang nakikita ko ang sarili ko sa kanya. Miss Albania sya sunod Miss Alabang ako. Charot!”
