Miss Universe Thailand 2020 Amanda Obdam: 'I am against corruption in every form'

Miss Universe Thailand 2020 Amanda Obdam sparked a controversy for her answer in a viral video from her question and answer training for Miss Universe.

The question was "If you have to choose a leader, between a smart person with a bit of corruption or somebody who is quite incapable but then he is very clean, which kind of leader would you choose?"

Amanda replied: "Corruption is never right and should not be in any country. However, I would have to choose a leader who is capable of leading the country even though that would cause corruption. Because I firmly believe that a country can flourish in a forward direction if there is a leader who is there to back the economy, to make the country a better place for everyone and so that the citizens can have all their trust in him."

The original video has immediately been taken down but unfortunately copies of it still resurfaced. It has ignited an online outrage from some disappointed Thai fans who do not support her answer.

Amanda has today took to her official social media page to set the record straight to the world that she is not at all in favor of corruption. She said, "I am against corruption in every form."

The 27-year-old is currently in the US ahead of the 69th Miss Universe competition scheduled for May 16 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
