The world of international pageantry is indeed a colorful one as lovely beauty queens from around the globe are vying to get a prestigious beauty title.

Its prestige, on the other hand, comes along with intrigue and the recent controversy in Miss Earth pageant created a new door for this issue to be addressed.

Carousel Vice President Lorraine Schuck previously expressed their side regarding the issue and Amado S. Cruz denied the allegations against him.

The beauty queen also said that it is not appropriate to blame the victim. For Mariel De Leon, other aspects of the issue such as the state of the victim should not be the concern.

She stressed out that what is wrong is wrong.

Here is the post of Mariel De Leon:

Sexual harassment in pageantry is real. Just like how it is in any field of work. IT IS NEVER OKAY TO BLAME THE VICTIM. It doesn’t matter what she is doing, where she is, what state she is in, and it especially doesn’t matter what she is wearing. No is no
