An official of the Miss Universe Philippines organization expressed his disapproval over the leaked photos and videos of candidates during the rehearsals that were found online.
Voltaire Tayag, the director of communications of Miss Universe Philippines, posted an Instagram Story on Monday where he addressed the issue.
“Posting or reposting spoilers from the dress rehearsals isn’t cool. Everyone in the arena was told not to take photos or videos. It’s completely disrespectful to the pageant and to the candidates,” he wrote.
Some social media accounts have been posting clips of the alleged evening gown rehearsals which features candidates walking in a single-line formation.
One clip showed Philippine bet, Beatrice Luigi Gomez.
The coronation night of the 70th Miss Universe is being held at the Red Sea Resort in Eilat, Israel.
If Gomez wins, she will be the fifth Filipina to have secured the crown of the most prestiguous beauty pageant.
