A beautiful model who was crowned as this year’s ATV Miss Asia Pageant Malaysia might be stripped of the title after she was called out for being a bully in school a day after she won.
Luwe Xin Hui, 23, from the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, has been grappling with allegations from the past after many of her classmates came out online saying she had bullied them in school.
The wave of accusations followed just a day after she triumphed over 14 contestants and clinched the title of ATV Miss Asia Pageant Malaysia 2023 on Sunday, 24th September.
After the win, Hui reportedly took to her 74,900 Instagram followers, saying: “The road ahead is still long. I will learn with humility, and we will work together to create more milestones.”
But it was not long after when her alleged victims confronted her in the comments section revealing how she treated them in class.
Instagram user ‘jennislee’ said: “When you bullied people, have you ever thought that other people’s childhoods might be ruined because of you?
“Some people even suffer from depression and can not sleep well every night.
“Have you ever thought that you would ruin someone’s happy middle school career?
“When people think about middle school, you were always the one with the ugly face that bullied them.
“People with bad intentions should not be respected by anyone.”
User ‘k.xuan96’ commented: “You don’t deserve to be the champion, you are a bully sister.”
And ‘gan.darren’ added: “Congratulations to the bully champion.”
Following the incident, ATV’s executive director Leong Wei Ping released a statement addressing concerns regarding the allegations made against the winner on Wednesday, 27th September.
Ping claimed that ATV is against any forms of bullying and discrimination and will be taking active measures to investigate the allegations.
He added: “We will strictly review the circumstances involving the accusations to ensure that the investigation process is fair and impartial.
“We will listen to the voices of relevant parties and do our best to ensure that justice is done.”
The company urged the public to refrain from speculating or making malicious claims against the event until conclusive results are obtained.
