How do you fight fire? With fire, of course.
The hilarous Ethel Booba on Saturday posted a digitally altered picture of herself burning an effigy featuring a body of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach superimposed with the head of Nolder Almanza Barraza. She wrote: “Kalma lang guys. Ako bahala. Babawi tayo sa sunugan ng effigy. Charot!”
Barraza, a Colombian man, had earlier posted a video that showed him burning an effigy of Wurtzbach and Miss Universe beauty pageant host Steve Harvey as a way to welcome 2016.
He has deleted the video and apologized for offending the people of the Philippines. He explained that it’s a Colombian tradition to burn effigies of public figures on New Year’s Eve as a way to get rid of the past year’s bad vibes.
