On November 17, the social media personality has addressed the comments made by the comedian regarding Miss Universe Philippines 2023 Michelle Dee.
In a Facebook post on Friday, November 17, Valentine clarified that she did not call Michelle Dee ugly. She explained that she mentioned lacking a “WOW factor” in Michelle’s beauty. Valentine emphasized that she still supports Michelle as the representative of the Philippines, praising her beauty but describing it as simple and generic.
“Wacky wala naman ako sinabing pangit si MMD nor sinabing pangit ang performance niya. As a matter of fact sinabi ko sa post ko na support parin ako sakanya since siya ang pambato ng ating bansa. I said that she lacked WOW factor,” Valentine stated.
