After the pageant ended, with Miss Philippines finally wearing the crown that she had won, the drama continued to go on backstage. Another video surfaced shortly after the Miss Universe 2015 pageant that showed many of the contestants being rude to Pia Wurtzback, the newly crowned Miss Universe.

In the video, the contestants are seen excluding Pia as they huddle around Miss Colombia, choosing to console her over her loss instead of congratulating Miss Philippines for her win. Miss Montenegro was one of the contestants who appeared to be behaving rudely towards the competition’s winner.

Miss Montenegro was seen looking at Miss Philippines for several seconds before shaking her head at the Miss Universe 2015 winner and walking away from her. She has since posted a public apology to Miss Philippines.

In the apology, posted by Miss Montenegro’s official Facebook page, it is said that the gesture was unintentional. The post says, “Congratulations on Pia Wurtzbach title of Miss Universe 2015. The girl is beautiful, worthy to bear the title of most beautiful girl and with her behavior and beauty to be an example for all girls around the world… We apologize to the fans and organizers of the Miss Philippines due to unintentional gesture of our representatives, Miss Montenegro.”
