A Thai beauty queen contestant is currently being slammed on social media after she shared a photo on her Instagram where compared the reigning Miss Universe Catriona Gray to Miss Grand International 2018, Clara Sosa.

Coco Arayha Suparurk who is one of the candidates for Miss Grand Thailand 2019, described Clara as “fit” while Catriona as “fat” on her Instagram story, and this has sparked outrage among pageant fans, especially the Philippines!

Though Coco has since removed the photo from her Instagram, it is too late, as many people has bombarded her social media account, calling her out for body-shaming Catriona.

Neither Catriona or Coco have responded to the issue, but pageant fans have demanded Coco to publicly apologise to Catriona.

During the recent Miss Universe Philippines on 9th June, Catriona has revealed that was once criticised for her body during Binibining Pilipinas 2018.

It was this same event that I experienced an increase in bodybashing, bodyshaming from so many in the online community. It’s easy to tell someone to have a ‘thick skin’ but it hurts,” she wrote.

“There were days I really struggled reading comments online. And it was definitely a process. But I had to grow to accept and love my unique shape and appreciate my body for its strength and capabilities.”

Coco will compete for Miss Grand Thailand 2019 at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre on 13th July 2019. If she wins, she will represent Thailand at the Miss Grand International 2019 pageant in Venezuela this October.

But seeing how her image has been tarnished on social media, it will be quite difficult for her to get the support from pageant fans.
