Devina DeDiva, a former assistant teacher from India, has apologized for her negative remarks toward Miss World 2013 Megan Young.

Manila Bulletin reported on October 7 that Devina has issued her apology through the biography of a Twitter account believed to be hers.

“Im so sorry @meganbata and to all Filipinos out there. Sorry. I don’t have a Twitter account so I made one just to show my apology,” the statement read.

As of this writing, Devina's Twitter account has been suspended.

Devina sparked outrage among Filipinos after she slammed Megan's victory--the first for the Philippines in Miss World history--on Facebook on September 29, saying that it was a "joke" and branding Filipinos as "maids."

As screenshots of these comments circulated online, Devina became a top local trending topic on October 1. Facebook posts expressing Filipinos' ire toward her also became viral, reported.

Manila Bulletin reports that Devina's Facebook account eventually got suspended, and she was allegedly terminated from her teaching job at a Singapore-based school, which was incidentally run by Filipino supervisors.
