“Question: Do you agree that ‘Freedom of Expression’ has limits? Why or why not? #FinalQuestion,” asked a username Ben Mark Fabro in the wake of recent terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo.
Charlie Hebdo is a French satirical weekly magazine, which has been the target of two terrorist attacks in 2011 and 2015. The attacks were supposed to be in riposte to a number of contentious Pangumber Muhammad caricatures it published. In the recent attack, 12 people were killed, including Charbonnier, and several other contributors.
“Do you think a female can lead a country as effectively as a male? Why or why not? #FinalQuestion,” asked a username Steve C Phan.
“According to a study, 40% of homeless youth are LGBT, and the #1 reason why they are on the streets is family rejection. What should be done to address this problem?” asked a pageant enthusiast named Sheen Ray Paderes Valdez.
“If you would have a chance to say something to someone who had bullied you in the past, what would it be? #FinalQuestion,” asked a fan named KC Alanes.
“Good Evening UNIVERSE! My question would be, do you think it would be fair that a transgender woman wins the miss universe title over a natural born woman? Why or why not?” asked a username Lenra Neil Dequiña.
“If you could travel back in time to the distant past with your smartphone, which notable historical figure would you seek out to take a selfie with and what would you tell him or her to explain a selfie?” asked Louis Winston de Mendoza.
