Miss Universe Philippines 2018 had always faced criticisms regarding her body. Although she doesn’t bother at some of the comments, there are times that she wouldn’t hesitate to share her thoughts about people asking women about their vital statistics.
The Miss World Philippines turned Binibining Pilipinas Universe titleholder responded to a netizen on Instagram after she was asked about her body measurement.
Netizen @abarai_jap posted, “mmmmm.. May we know po anong vital stats ni Kat? Ba’t parang hindi klaro parati ang waist nya? Or sadyang she has an elaborate rib cage?”
Catriona politely responded saying “What number would be good for you? What number constitutes my worth, or a “perfect” figure? I hope you would see women as individuals whose worth are defined by what they do and who they are, not by numbers on a tape.”
Catriona’s fans rallied behind her in the comments section of the post, with most saying that her training is not finished and they are confident that she is taking the competition very seriously.
