The coronation of Miss Universe 2018 may be over, but Filipinos online are not yet done with their celebration.
Joyous tweets and Facebook posts hailing Filipina beauty queen Catriona Gray for bagging the coveted title poured on social media. And just like in any other big event, some netizens showed their wit and sense of humor to take their Miss Universe-related posts to the next level.
Arguably one of the funniest memes to come out was a screencap of Gray onstage as part of the Top 5 contestants, with the caption “Catriona Gray and the Silver Linings.” Gray, in a blazing red evening gown, stood in the middle of competitors who all wore similar shades of silver and gray, making her look like the lead singer in an all-girl group. The caption also referred portentously to her answer during the Top 3 Q&A portion, in which she encouraged others to look at even the toughest situations “with a silver lining.”
Can you imagine Filipinos erupting when Catriona was announced as the winner? Prince (@prxnce) gave a glimpse of the celebration.
