The feisty Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio has strong opinions about Mariel de Leon’s Miss International loss.
Inday Sara took to her Facebook account her “schadenfreude” moment after learning that De Leon wasn’t able to win the coveted crown. “Schadenfreude” is a German word meaning enjoyment derived from another person’s failure. Duterte claimed she has an experience with De Leon but refused to explain it further.
She reposted an unflattering photo of the lady shared by Jefry Tupas and captioned it, “Meron ako personal experience sa kanya, but I’m too tired to make kwento. I believe pageant judges see through the physical beauty and examine the heart. Para bang Ms. Venezuela sa Ms. Universe 2016. Parang ganyan. This is a schadenfreude moment for me. Sa binisaya pa, ang gabà di gyud magsabà.” The Visayan part meaning, karma doesn’t warn.
De Leon is a staunch critic of the Duterte administration who described the country as “bloody Philippines.” She was at loggerheads with Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson; saying that she’s “Biased and disrespectful. She insults those who are against her.”
