Earlier this week, Malaysian beauty queen Amelia Thripura Henderson was crowned ‘Model of the Year’ for Malaysia at the 2019 Asia Model Festival in Seoul.

It was a magical night for the Selangor-born lass who expressed her gratitude for the privilege and honour to represent ‘beautiful Malaysia’.

Like any other member of today’s society, she shared the moment on Instagram with a post captioned “never forget where you come from 🇲🇾”

That’s when the trolls reared their ugly heads…

Not one to take the abuse, Amelia clap-backed with the grace and dignity of a true icon.

She even took to Twitter to not only express her disappointment, but to take the opportunity to educate people on verbal abuse.

Now that’s a true QUEEN

The daughter of a Malaysian dentist mother of Sri Lankan descent and a Scottish architect father, 23-year-old Amelia is known in for her modelling and acting roles in Malaysia.

She’s not just a pretty face though. The model-actress-host is also a member of Mensa International with a certified IQ of 180.

(Correction: An earlier version labelled Henderson as a Beauty Queen. While she’s still a Queen in our hearts, we regret the confusion caused by this.)
