Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray is in Colombia to judge the country’s Miss Universe pageant – but not everyone is thrilled to see her travelling.

His trip to Colombia amid a pandemic and typhoon in the Philippines was questioned by an Instagram user, as seen in Gray’s post yesterday, November 11.

Gray announced her touchdown in Colombia today and before that she made a stopover in Turkey.

“Cat, why are you in Colombia instead of helping your own province deal with the typhoon?” I always was [a] fan but especially to travel in times of pandemic? What example does taking this job send to everyone? an @kopkhunkha, which appears to be an anonymous account, Gray asked.

The beauty queen replied:[This] the invitation was extended months ago and even though I’m away I’ve been doing my part working with @philredcross since the day of the typhoon to bring aid and relief to affected areas. Thank you for your concern.

The same social media account responded by explaining that the question had been asked to “hold even beauty queens accountable” and that “others may see this as their departure to travel” during the pandemic.

Gray openly documented his travels not only overseas but also in the Philippines. As an ambassador for the Philippine Red Cross, she advocated for swab test, blood donation and make a donation to the typhoon relief efforts.

She announcement her trip to the South American country last October where she will be a judge on Miss Universe Colombia.

She previously judged in competitions in Thailand and South Africa. J.B.
