|Ms. Earth - Ms. USA, Nicole Kelley|
Up until now, her hate comment is being talked about.
According to a Facebook post that spread on the Internet:
"I hardly made it to manila and we already attended a ridiculous tv show. So annoying!!! These people want to touch you and be with you all the time!! I can't understand a word they say. I can't wait to go back home. This country is so dirty and noisy. I'm scared to eat!!! What a mess. On a lighter note I don't see any real competition. Will keep you updated my loves"

The controversy elicited many reactions. There are those who became angry, while some says she should just say sorry. But before the situation got worse, Nicole posted a video on Youtube saying her account was hacked and she was not the one who's responsible for posting the negative remarks. She immediately deleted the post when she was informed about it.
"I arrive here yesterday, safely, so thank you for a very warm welcome and I'm very appreciative of that. I wanted to address something that was earlier, which was brought to my attention. I'm very disappointed about what was written as me, but it wasn't me. I was out at the community center to work earlier when it was posted, but I want to make it clear that it is never okay to cyber-bully anyone," Nicole said.
Miss Earth organizers did not give further comment on the issue.
