In the Facebook video, Miss Philippines-Earth Schweighart asked Miss Earth Budinsky if Hitler was an Austrian.

"Imelda: is Hitler from Austria?

Kimberly: Ok that's a bad question because we normally don't really talk about Hitler, but yeah he is.

Imelda: Oh my God our President is doing Hitler stuff here in the Philippines.

Austria: That's crazy."



Many supporters of Duterte slammed and angered over the statement of Imelda.

Meanwhile, Imelda apologized and explained herself on her Facebook account. She said that she's a Duterte follower and she just made a 'soft joke'.

Here's what Imelda said:

"Guys, I'm a Duterte follower. The people who talk to me everyday knows how delightful I am to see and experience the change he has made happen so far. I am half German that is the reason why I talked to a fellow delegate about 'Hitler' so casually who is Austrian. Because all my life I am always teased by fellow filipinos as 'Hitler' because they are not well informed that Hitler was not German. In fact Hitler was Austrian. So , when I saw my fellow delegate i made a soft joke about it out of my excitement. I am an extremist so forgive me my fellow Filipinos and Duterte supporters if you didn't understand how I am. I got that idea wherein i said, 'Duterte is doing Hitler stuff' from online news, newspapers with headlines saying he is Hitler-like but for the good. I was just not able to explain what i really meant further in Facebook live because my mind was occupied with the other delegates i want to capture on my Facebook Live cover. That is what i meant. Hope you appreciate me explaining myself so that you understand more. Peace."

  1. OK Meldy,we accept your apology & explanation but next time be careful what you say. Austrian & German are the same species or of the same kind. Austria was a part of Germany for your information.
