Netizens turn Miss Universe Singapore 2018 national costume into hilarious memes

Thursday, Nov 29, 2018

Another year, another Miss Universe Singapore national costume that has drawn flak.

This year's costume features a peace symbol incorporated into the bodice, but the highlight is a fan-like electric blue skirt emblazoned with a digital print of a handshake - one arm features the North Korean flag and the other, the American flag - over the Singapore skyline. 

The eye-catching design inspired one Facebook user, Jer Bear, to launch a #MissUniverseSingaporePhotoshopBattle, challenging internet users to superimpose on the skirt whatever they want. More than 45 Photoshop-enthusiasts have posted their responses within four hours.

Wary that some of the nastiness may be misdirected at current Miss Universe Singapore Zahra Khanum, Jer Bear wrote: "This is calling out the team behind her, not Miss Universe herself."

"Yes it's mean of us, but when you do s**** like this you get called out."
