“Cat, why are you in Colombia instead of helping your own province deal with the typhoon? I have always been [a] fan but especially with traveling during a pandemic? What example does taking this job send to everyone?” one @kopkhunkha, which appears to be an anonymous account, asked Gray.

She then responded:

[This] invitation was extended months ago and even though I’m away, I’ve been doing my part in working with @philredcross since the day of the typhoon to provide aid and relief to the affected areas. Thanks for your concern.

The Instagram user then responded by explaining that the question was made to “hold even beauty queens accountable”. The user also added that “others can see this as their go ahead to travel” despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

But Gray wasn’t just sitting down while here in the country. She was an official ambassador to the Philippine Red Cross. She was also advocating for swab testing as well as donating to typhoon relief efforts and blood donations as well.

One Tweet even mentioned “Protect Catriona”
