Netizens react to Sen. Angara’s Q&A in Bb. Pilipinas 2014


Sen. Angara, who was elected to the Senate of the Philippines in the 2013 Philippine Senate election, stirred up social media sites because of the way he delivered his question to Bb. Pilipinas 2014 favorite Pia Wurtzbach.

Senator Juan Edgardo Manalang Angara asked his question to Bb Pilipinas 2013 1st runner-up Pia Wurtzbach in Filipino or Tagalog, in which Pia also answered in Filipino.

As claimed by some netizens, Pia Wurtzbach was not given a chance that her answer be translated from Filipino to English as there were some non-Filipino speaking judges.

Sen. Angara raised his question in Tagalog: “Anong pinakamagandang leksyon para sa mga babae sa mundo?”. Pia Wurtzbach responded by answering also in Tagalog, “Intuition po ang pinaka-importante, kahit hindi ka sigurado sa gagawin mo, maasahan mo ang intuition mo.”

Netizens expressed their anger against Sen. Angara by calling him “bobo”, “rude”, “unfair”, “insensitive”, and a lot more.

Netizens were blaming Sen. Angara of not having Pia Wurtzbach in the list of big winners in the recently concluded Bb. Pilipinas 2014 pageant.

Following are some reactions from netizens regarding Sen. Angara’s Q&A in Bb. Pilipinas 2014:

    It does not matter whether the question was asked in Tagalog or English. Senator Angara asked a good question. If the candidate was quick-witted, she could have given a better answer that could have landed her among the winners’ list. If Pia translated her answer in English, who knows it could have spelled her utter ruin. I must say she has a pretty face and great level of confidence… But it must still be coupled with intelligence! She must be thankful that she won two special awards. Worthy to take pride in. Congrats!
