Being in a beauty pageant, beauty queens will be judged based on their appearance amongst other things. Over the weekend, some Singaporean netizens were not too happy about their homegrown contestant for Miss International.

Charlotte Lucille Chia is a 21-year-old Singaporean model who studied at the University of Sydney. She was crowned Miss Singapore International last July 13 and will be vying for the title of Miss International this year in Tokyo.

The Facebook page All Singapore Stuff shared a photo showing the Southeast Asian candidates. The photo had the caption “Team ASEAN for Miss International 2019. Good luck to our Singapore representative! #PrideofSG

Many netizens reacted rudely at the post, commenting rather harshly about Chia’s appearance.

“So stunning especially our miss Singapore. Everyone will be STUNNED,” one commenter said in quite a sarcastic tone.

“I am sure Singapore can select a better contestant. Her face is very ordinary & her mouth is too large. If she gets in, I will be very stunned!,” another netizen observed.

Netizens also said Chia looked like an “ahlian” and compared her to the loud-mouthed television character Rosie Phua played by Irene Ang.

Some netizens could not help but pit Chia against Malaysia’s Charmaine Chew (22).

But, not everyone threw harsh words at Chia. Coming to her defense, a netizen commented that she looked “most original,” suggesting that Chia is admirable for not looking like she underwent cosmetic procedures.

“She is miss original. Must give her the credit for not adjusting god’s creation,” one comment said.

Another netizen said that the photo was a bad choice considering it was from a front angle and was not Chia’s official pageant photo.

“Y’all can stop throwing shade at this amazing girl who is putting herself out there to represent her country. Charlotte is gorgeous, smart, eloquent and kind hearted. She deserves better than all of y’all sitting behind your computer and phone screens and being keyboard warriors.”

The contestants will be competing for the title of Miss International 2019 on Nov 12 in Tokyo, Japan. /TISG
