Miss Singapore Beauty Pageant finalists turn to counseling
« on: August 10, 2017, 05:24:14 pm »
Thanks to the fast-paced, ever-changing world that is the internet, Singaporeans would have  probably forgotten by now last month’s Miss Singapore Beauty Pageant  that was savagely ripped apart by netizens. It was a picture of the finalists circulating on social  media that garnered vicious online commentary from keyboard warriors who  probably didn’t give a second thought to their hurtful words.

But for the contestants, the trauma lives on beyond the competition.

According to STOMP,  pageant organizer ERM Singapore Marketing has arranged to provide  counseling services to the finalists after the nasty backlash reportedly  left them distressed. The photo in question — allegedly not taken by an official photographer — had made netizens question the quality of the  contestants and hurl abusive remarks at the girls.

Shin Min Daily News reported that since the incident, some of the contestants refused to make public  appearances for fear of being filmed or photographed, and one finalist apparently missed her training for three days and suffered from an anxiety disorder after being maliciously told that she looked like she was a result of a hit-and-run accident.
