Rumors are spreading around social media that Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2017 Katarina Rodriguez (Candidate #31) allegedly expressed that she will not accept the crown. The model and former contestant in Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 (AsNTM) was crowned as the newest Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental on Sunday, April 30, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The day after the coronation, Katarina retweeted a joke posted by a netizen that says she’s “The Miss Universe the Philippines never had.” The said post garnered different opinions from the people. Some are saying that Katarina should have won Bb. Pilipinas Universe, while others say that the beauty queen shows dissatisfaction for laughing at the joke.
Two days after her win, the Facebook page The Philippine Pageantry and CNN Philippines made shocking announcements pertaining to Katarina. Katarina, on the other hand, immediately took to social media to explain her side after netizens react to CNN Philippines and The Philippine Pageantry’s posts. She exclaimed on Twitter that people should refrain from making assumptions.
Hi fam. Never made an announcement to anyone that I’m resigning the crown. It’s been two days since one of the most intense AND fun experiences of my life. I’ve been sleeping & talking to my family, friends & loved ones. Also wanted to say whatever decision I make in regards to ANYTHING I will always consider where my heart & mind lie simultaneously. There’s a lot of magic in honesty. Remember that. 🌾
The Philippine Pageantry has taken down their post on Facebook regarding the ‘shake-up,’ and reposted Katarina’s Instagram post with the caption: “From the other side of the fence (Katarina Rodriguez).”
