Miss Hong Kong 2017 Looks Like Ronaldinho, Says Netizens
Do you agree?
Newly-minted Miss Hong Kong 2017, Juliette Louie, may have slayed the competition, but she didn’t exactly win the hearts of netizens.
Netizens criticised the competition as being rigged, as Juliette hails from a wealthy family (her dad is award-winning Hongkong graphic designer Henry Louie, who reportedly nominated her for the contest).
Juliette’s win also came about as judge and TVB host Carol Cheng voted for her twice when the votes were tied between her and first runner-up Regina Ho, a move that many called unfair.
Since the competition, Juliette’s Instagram account has been flooded with hate comments lambasting her as not “fit for the crown” and comparing her looks to a horse and Uruguayan footballer Luis Suarez and Ronaldinho (who are also known for their, yeah, prominent teeth).

Oh, and also Karen Mok’s bucktoothed hawker character Turkey in God of Cookery and Rabbit-Tooth Jane in Kungfu Hustle.

Ouch. And you think Sarah Jessica Parker got it bad.
victims of this form of ‘bullying’ I guess you could say. I know my worth and myself and I won’t change to please others… Loving yourself is the first step to happiness… I will continue to be myself and won’t change myself to please anyone!”
It doesn't help that Juliette herself further fanned the flames by releasing a live broadcast video on Facebook where she declared: "Do you expect me to give up my winner status because you are unhappy with the results? I will not do that and expect everyone to like me as it shows that I lack confidence. I will continue to be myself and will not change myself just to make people happy."
She also reportedly has no plans to get braces for her pearlies, but has Instagrammed that she hopes to be “making it out in Hollywood because my ambition goes beyond this tiny but great island”.
