Angelique, fellow Miss Universe Philippines 2023 candidate, saw this post. She expressed her support for Michelle in the comments section.

“GANDA NIYA SH*T,” the former Pampanga bet wrote.

Angelique competed against Michelle, along with other beauty queens, during the local version of the prestigious pageant early this year.
