Has Colombian beauty queen Ariadna Gutierrez responded to President Rodrigo Duterte’s criticism against former Colombia President Cesar Gaviria?
Facebook user Allan Fernandez shared an article claiming such to Facebook fan page “Protectors of Our Beloved President Digong II.”
And the post had some netizens all riled up against Gutierrez, who was mistakenly crowned as Miss Universe 2015 for a few seconds before the crown went to the real winner, Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach.
Some called her “bitter” and labeled her as loser. Others told her and the former Colombian leader to mind their own business.
We clicked on the link, which first appeared to be from ABS-CBN. However, the URL of the page to which we were directed to turned out to be abs.cbn-tv.com, a poor imitation of ABS-CBN’s real page, abs-cbn.com.
The article claimed that Gutierrez “fired back” at Duterte for calling Gaviria an “idiot.” She allegedly said that Gaviria is far better than Duterte and all the Philippine presidents combined.
She was even quoted saying, “You insult my president right. Gaviria is far better than you even combined with all the former presidents of the Philippines.”
Duterte indeed called Gaviria an “idiot” for giving him a lecture about how to deal with drug users and to not repeat the mistakes he committed in Colombia’s drug war.
However, the story about Gutierrez firing back at Duterte is not true. It is a hoax from a website that is trying to pass off as ABS-CBN to fool people. When we checked the other articles on the site, we also found out that it has published several fake articles, such as the Philippines becoming a US territory as per Duterte’s statement, Trump tripling financial aid to the Philippines, Jinkee Pacquiao being shot dead, and more.
