Karen Davila asked for Ariella's permission if she can ask her a somewhat controversial question. "I don't want to make you feel bad before you leave", Davila said.
But when Arida welcomes all the questions wholeheartedly, Davila started to detail the queries from social media site Twitter, "Karen, is she our representative to the Miss Universe? It seems like she's having a hard time speaking in English."
"I'm aware of that actually," Arida responded. "I got a lot of... feelings especially on my communication skill(s). I'm doing my best to convey my message to the people. Like what I told my trainers, I will do my best in the competition," Miss Universe Philippines said during the interview on ANC's Headstart show.
"When you get there, it's (on) how your express yourself. Latinas can't even complete a sentence... in English. I think it's (just) the Filipino(s) who are critical", "Many of the candidates have a translator. But I know I'm gonna deliver," she boldly added. She later tweeted that she didnot want to hurt anyone.
OM sorry. I didn't mean to offend anyone from my last interview. I hope you guys can understand what Im trying to say.
