Nagbigay ng kaniyang mensahe si Miss Universe Philippines (MUPH) Organization national director Shamcey Supsup sa pambato ng Pilipinas na si Celeste Cortesi, na bigong maiuwi ang korona ng pagiging Miss Universe nitong Enero 15, 2023.
Bago maging national director ay naging 3rd-runner up si Supsup sa Miss Universe noong 2011.
“You fought bravely to raise the Filipino flag on that stage and what truly matters is that you gave it your all and made your country proud. 🇵🇭,” ani Supsup-Lee sa kaniyang latest Facebook post.
“This experience is truly a lesson in humility. It is a way to remind all of us to stay grounded for we are all created equal.”
“The new era of Miss Universe cemented its thrust on breaking stereotypes and embracing diversity. Apart from the glitz and glamour, we are again reminded of the true essence of this platform.”
“Our work continues, to be a venue for women to find a purpose larger than themselves and to use their collective voices to create an unstoppable force for GOOD.”
Samantala, wala pang tugon, reaksiyon, o pahayag si Supsup sa mga kumakalat na tsikang matapos daw na hindi makapasok sa Top 16 si Cortesi ay “iniwanan daw nila ito sa ere”, ayon sa mga kumakalat sa iba’t ibang social media pages.
