Imelda Schweighart quits as Miss Philippines Earth


The candidate resigned after she was caught on video criticizing Miss Ecuador.

Imelda Schweighart, a Filipino-German model, has resigned from being the Miss Philippines Earth 2016 on Monday, October 31.

Imelda and was accompanied by her mother to meet with Lorraine Shuck, executive vice president of Carousel Productions, to pass her resignation form which the organization accepted, according to a report of ABSCBN.

Imelda apologized for the viral video wherein she was seen and heard saying negative remarks about Miss Ecuador Katherin Espin who won the pageant.

"If it's a crime to tell the truth, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to offend Miss Ecuador," Imelda said.

"I don't know her enough but she was my roommate," she added.

Imelda was seen on the video influencing her fans after the competition, saying: "Yung nanalo peke ilong, peke baba, peke boobs! Miss Earth, dapat natural."

The pageant was held at the Mall of Asia Arena on Saturday, October 29 and Imelda did not make the top 16.

Imelda also broke silence about the gown issue between Espin and her.

"Honestly, I’m not bitter. I’m just offended. Why? Because the gown that I was supposed to wear was given to Ecuador. I was fitted the gown. I was just so offended. That time, I’m still in the heat of the moment, the gown that was placed in Miss Philippines’ cubicle was taken. That box, my gown named after me… I wasn’t able to wear it. Even Miss Guam made me borrow her gown… because I have nothing to wear," she said.

This is not the first time Imelda criticized someone publicly. A video of her asking Miss Austria an offensive question about Hitler and shedding bad light on President Rodrigo Duterte also went viral and gained the fury of netizens.

She told Miss Austria during a live video that Duterte was doing Hitler stuff in the Philippines, leaving the latter with disappointment.
