"Yes I'm Fat And Ugly and Megan Young Is Sexy And Beautiful," -Devina Devida

“Yes I’m Fat And Ugly and Megan Young Is Sexy And Beautiful,” -Devina Devida

Days after a certain DEVINA DEVIDA or DEVINA SHARMA bashed Filipinos after Megan Young won the Miss World 2013 crown on FaceBook  ; she instantly got the ire of netizens and was called names mostly by Filipino onliners.  Word have it that she lost her job [she is a special education teacher in Singapore] and life in general turned for the worst.  She has now extended her apology.

Here is an article from an Australian entertainment site :

Devina Sharma or Devina Devida as we know her is really sorry and regretting the words she said for Miss World 2013 Megan Young. She has gone to great lengths to abuse the Filipinos and called the girls as dirty and smelly but Devina is repenting what she said and has also created a Twitter account just to apologize to the people in Philippines and Megan Young too. “Im so sorry @meganbata and to all the Filipinos out there. Sorry. I don’t have a twitter account so I made one just to show my apology,” Devida wrote on her Twitter account as a profile summary and says she is so resentful that she will not change her Twitter bio “for life!”

Devina, who is now the most hated woman in Philippines, is asking for forgiveness from the people in Philippines and requesting them to stop hating her.

“Hating me won’t ever make you look good. Now shut up,” she writes in another tweet.

The impact of her racist comments for Megan Young was to this extent that she got fired from her current job and even has criminal charges filed against her. She is currently looking for a job and says she had “moved on.”

Devina also added that her grandmother is being taken care by a Filipino nanny who is really sweet.”I feel so disgusted. My grandmom is taking care by a filipino nanny. She was so good and kind. :(,” Devina says.

“I’m trying to get my files so I can work again. I badly need a job,” Devina wrote on Twitter.

Though the hate comments haven’t stopped against the girl but there are certain people in Philippines who are actually ready to forgive her.

“Apology accepted … Hope you will be ok soon 🙂 Please be strong and hope you will be ok soon :),” she is assured by one Twitter user Nene Nette, from Philippines.

“if there are some filipino who still insult you, don’t mind them. they will stop soon. i assure you that. :),” said another user Jo Ann Bolocboloc from Philippines.


“Please show me filipinos are willing to forgive someone. That’s all I want. Again, I’m sorry,” Devina pleads.

Do you think it’s time for the Filipinos to show their forgiving side and accept the apology?


MUZY2The July issue of ISDA MAGAZINE features this year’s Cannes sensation ANGELI BAYANI.  Having the pleasure of doing the cover story, here is an excerpt of  the raw version:  Has she landed softly back to reality after being  sent  to stratospheric heights  by the deafening standing ovation her films (Singapore’s “ILO-ILO” and Lav Diaz “NORTE, HANGGANAN NG KASAYSAYAN) received in the recent Cannes Film Festival?  Honestly?  Yes.  Honestly,  but ANGELI BAYANI would rather puff some smoke and give you a girlish  gaze trailed by an enigmatic smile.  ‘Actually, na-ooffend ako sa mga tanong kung nakababa na raw ba ako… let’s face it , part yan ng job mo bilang actor na tanggapin ang karangalan para sa mga obrang sinalihan mo ; yes , to receive a Cannes approval so to speak is all glamorous and stuff, but at the end of the day – it’s still part of your job!’  Never underestimate this lovely petite actress who is at the prime of league;  her craft comes first and the accolade the may be thrown her way  are tasty sprinkles on the icing.  ‘I can never sit back or float on a pool relishing on how it felt to be there , much less being acknowledged! I’m a working actress and the affirmation comes with the load of work that may come my way now…’
