‘Insensitive’: Ganiel Krishnan hits back at ‘bully’ after Miss World PH stint
MANILA — Broadcaster and beauty queen Ganiel Krishnan called out a critic who appeared to be poking fun at her for not winning the Miss World Philippines crown on Sunday.
Krishnan, who finished the national pageant as second runner-up, reposted a post from a supporter defending her in an Instagram story of designer Domz Ramos.
Ramos said in his post, “MS. WORLD OR NOTHING DAW EH OH AYAN 2ND RUNNER UP JIVAHHHH.”
While he did not mention Krishnan’s name, the former TV Patrol Star Patroller made this statement after she submitted her application for the Miss World Philippines.
The beauty queen left a short yet strong response to Ramos’ comment: “UNNECESSARY. INSENSITIVE. BULLY.”
A Krishnan’s supporter also berated Ramos for the obvious shade.
“If there is one thing that was made clear after the recently concluded Miss World Philippines pageant is that Domz Ramos is a bully. Even if he didn’t mention Ganiel Krishnan’s name in his post, it was clear as day that he was throwing shade at the beauty queen, using her famed answer during the MWP screening ‘MWP or nothing’ and even added her MWP placement,” Jerome Balute said.
“This is quite alarming because it has become a culture amongst Pinoy pageant fans to bash and bully candidates without considering the trauma it might cause to the bullied.”
Balute also noted that Ramos is the “swimsuit provider” of rival pageant Binibining Pilipinas.
“As the swimsuit provider of Binibining Pilipinas, it also stains the reputation of the organization because of his affiliation so I am hoping that he will be reprimanded or dropped because of his bullying ways,” the pageant fan added.
Balute also claimed that it was not the first time Ramos bullied a candidate.
“It’s high time that we call out these people who find satisfaction over other people’s heartbreak and misery. What bothers me most is that he doesn’t even show remorse because this isn’t the first time he bullied a candidate,” he continued.
Krishnan previously won the Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia-Pacific International crown in 2016.
She also represented the Philippines at the Miss Asia-Pacific International in the same year and placed second runner-up.
The Filipino-Indian beauty queen also ventured into broadcasting after becoming a courtside reporter of Far Eastern University, where she finished her college degree.
Tracy Perez from Cebu was crowned the new Miss World Philippines after the six-hour long pageant.
Walang nagcocomment dito oh, takot mabahiran ang pinakamamahal nyong BBP no? Pero kung employee ng MUPH yang Domz na yan, tadtad na ng reklamo at comments dito hays #Hypocrisy #Biased
The cyber bully is not just “insensitive”, he is ignorant. When credentialed aspirants declare “MW or nothing” (like Catriona saying MU or nothing”), they say so in the context of the platform that the title carries. A Broadcast Journalist with a beauty title of another pageant already tucked in her waist, but which does not have a platform for a social advocacy, I am sure she was gunning for the chance to use the platform “beauty with a purpose”. The platform was not given to her. Any right-thinking purpose-driven individual who knows her real worth to society will simply look for other platforms for her advocacy. The professional and honorable to do it is to resign from the ceremonial title that will just bound her to a contract with no clear and specific function, much less compensation.
@scorg – Very well put.
Bat walang comment dito? 😆
Because we’re all bullies LOL
Anyway, this Domz Ramos is also the designer that MWP candidate Pauline Robles posted about yesterday on IG. He was also bullying Pauline, going so far as post her name on Facebook, telling her she won’t win, calling her ingrata and poking fun at her for having “no budget” for gowns.
This designer must not know shiz about Cybercrime Law. What an idiot.
hahahahhaa powthah… natawa ako sa “we are bullies”
Hindi kasi related sa MUPH yung issue kaya kebs lang sila. Biased ang pag call-out 😂
If MWP respected her decision to resign, who are we to criticize her. If she eyed for MWP title and did not get it, she has the prerogative to resign. .
The only problem is the reason for her resignation stating that she cannot serve 2 Masters at the same time which is a little bit off. She could have stated that she would be more effective being a broadcaster than being 2nd runner-up.
