The Twitter user, warning fellow netizens about using Wikipedia as a reference for information, said Pokwang’s photo appears on the page of Miss Universe 2001 instead that of the actual winner — Puerto Rican Denise Quiñones.
“Hindi talaga dapat ginagawang reference ang Wikipedia eh. Search n’yo #MissUniverse2001 si @pokwang27 ang winner,” the netizen wrote.
Pokwang, on the other hand, couldn’t help but share her reaction to the post on social media, writing: “Ang agaaa! Tawang tawa ako pot*h.”

Actor and spoken word artist Juan Miguel Severo reacted to Pokwang’s tweet saying she could go up against the Quiñones.
“Parang may laban naman po yung nasa picture,” Severo wrote.

Wikipedia has become infamous as an unreliable source of information as the public can easily tamper with the facts and edit details posted on the website.
Born Marietta Subong, Pokwang has earned herself a spot as one of the top Filipino comedians in the country.
Meanwhile, the Philippines has so far produced four Miss Universe winners throughout the history of the competition. Among them are Gloria Diaz, Margie Moran, Pia Wurtzbach, and Catriona Gray.
