“PookLook” Fonthip is low in spirits and releases her feelings on her Facebook with tears after being scrutinized for not being suitable as a contestant for Miss Universe pageant.
From the case of, “PookLook” Fonthip Watchratrakul who is now in Las Vegas, Nevada U.S.A. Holding the title of “Miss Thailand Universe 2010” whom is representing Thailand had came out to express her feelings through her Facebook with tears in her eyes on August 17th. Fonthip expressed her feelings in both Thai and English regarding the criticisms made towards her.
“How can I make it through to the preliminary rounds when there is something bothering my heart? I still want to be Thai! stop your action plz. For Thailand!!”
“What I posted on Facebook was meant towards 1 person. I didn’t mean anything in regarding the pictures and if I had made anyone feel bad, I apologize right here right now. I will have to bow and humbly accept the criticisms and comments like in the past. Those who are fans of beauty pageants know that I can take the criticisms anytime since I’ve accepted this honorable position. I can’t progress if there are not good comments from fans of the pageant.”
“It’s only that right now is a sensitive position for me than I can explain. No one understands these feelings if they have not been in this position. I am accepting everyone’s expectations in the country of 26 62 million people ? and a 20 year old young adult only. Right now I’ve expressed everything I have to say already and I hope that those who doesn’t know who I am will understand me much more. As for the fans of the beauty pageant, I know you will always be by my side.”
“I think it’s a good thing that this has happened because I know how much fans of the beauty pageant love me. Another thing is that those who have never followed the beauty pageant, but only did because of the “wave” has been giving me encouragement from the incident that has happened. I believe that that the sky after the storm will always be beautiful. Thai’s love each other. This is what I believe and have confident in from the moment I stepped foot at the airport in Las Vegas.”
