Binibining Pilipinas apologizes for ‘natural woman’ post after backlash: ‘No intention to throw malice’

Binibining Pilipinas MUP

Binibining Pilipinas has issued an apology after it drew criticism for supposedly being homophobic and throwing “shade” at the newly crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2021 Beatrice Luigi Gomez.

Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) drew flak after it showed a photo of Miss International Philippines Hannah Arnold along with the description “natural woman” in a now-deleted Facebook post last Oct. 1.

Pageant fans described the remark as “outdated” and “homophobic,” while others also speculate that Binibining Pilipinas was “shading” Gomez, who is an out lesbian woman advocating LGBTQ rights.
