Wait, Miss New York Called Miss America What?
Bring on the drama drama. After winning her Miss New York crown, Nina Davuluri, who likes to call herself “Miss Diversity”, headed back to her hotel room with several other girls. Upon arrival, they reportedly talked shit about their fellow competitors so loudly and so aggressively that a girl in an adjoining room decided to tape it, and long story short, now the whole world is mad at Davuluri for allegedly calling current Miss America Mallory Hagan “fat as fuck”.
According to Page Six all involved agree some pretty heinous things were said inside that hotel room, but as for who said what, that’s completely up in the air. Some racist comments flew out of someone’s mouth. The aforementioned “fat as fuck” jab was hurled and God only knows what else that hasn’t been made public. Those who have heard the tape seem to think Davuluri was responsible for the Miss America jab and another girl the racism, but Miss New York herself vehemently disagrees, as do the executives running the pageant.
Miss America employees reportedly conducted a thorough investigation to try and figure out exactly what happened, and they concluded Davuluri didn’t anything illegal. That being said, sitting in a group and talking shit about your fellow competitors, regardless of who said what, isn’t exactly something to be proud of. As such, Miss New York sent Miss America an apology Facebook message. Here’ an excerpt…
“I want to apologize for the awful statements made by people in my room . . . There were people who claimed to be my supporters and said things I never agreed with, nor supported . . . I was never a part of the words or statements that may have been hurtful . . . I’m sorry if someone said something that was inappropriate.”
As beauty pageant scandals go, this one is decidedly tame. It doesn’t involve porn, tattoos or judging abnormalities. It does, however, involve egregious lies because Miss America isn’t even remotely fat in the slightest.
