Mo Twister blasts Miss Universe bet Ariella Arida

BY PAUL MICHAEL CAMANIA JARAMILLO
 
Radio personality Mo Twister took to social media on Tuesday to comment on the Philippines' representative to Miss Universe, Ariella Arida, recent interview on the ABS-CBN News Channel's (ANC) "Headstart."
 
 
In a post on image-sharing service Instagram, Mo Twister on Tuesday showed a short clip from Arida's "Headstart" interview.

"I don't intend to bash on our Ms Philippines here but how the [expletive] is this not considered offensive toward Latinas? I mean, we ALWAYS get so sensitive when someone says anything about us Filipinos (see Dan Brown, Alec Baldwin, and every other time we screamed murder) yet our girl representing our country, in a legit interview regarding the competition, says Latinas can't put a sentence together in English. That would royally piss me off if I were of Latin descent. I'm pretty sure we would lose our minds if we heard an interview of a contestant saying 'Filipinos can't string a sentence together' and our Senator/Congressman would persona non grata that bitch immediately."
 
 
The controversial disc jockey then took to Twitter to bring up his concern that Arida's supposedly "offensive" comment might make it to news outfits with Latin Americans as the target audience.
 

 
On Tuesday night, one of Arida's pageant trainers, Jonas Gaffud, answered Mo Twister's statements. Gaffud, who heads local modeling agency Mercator, maintained that Arida is "very humble."



"I have nothing against Mo Twister. But to clarify, Ara meant lang she's ok with her communications skills because a lot of other girls don't speak good English in Miss Universe. It's about speaking English in pageants, not to downgrade anyone who doesn't speak well. Respect is something lacking in our society that makes the world more complicated to live in. Let's not use news programs to destroy entire groups of people. I agree."
 
Gaffud proceeded to update his followers on Arida's Miss Universe bid, saying the 24-year-old Laguna native arrived in Moscow on Tuesday night.

The 62nd edition of Miss Universe, which will gather over 80 candidates, will be held on November 9 at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow.
