Sheena Monnin, Miss Pennsylvania resigned from the Miss USA pageant as of Sunday.
She states it was because the contest was rigged and she wanted to distance herself from an unfair organization.
“In my heart I believe in honesty, fair play, a fair opportunity, and high moral integrity, none of which in my opinion are part of this pageant system any longer,” Monnin wrote in one of her Facebook posts
However that is not what her home state is saying she sent them in an email.
Apparently in the email she stated that it was against the rules for the pageant to have a transgender contestant; she believes in fair play and tradition.
Donald Trump, who runs the Miss Universe Organization, called Monnin’s claims that the pageant was fixed “totally ridiculous” in a live interview Wednesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and said the pageant organization plans to sue Monnin for making the “false charge.”
“We’re going to be suing her now. She made a very false charge and she knows it’s a false charge,” Trump said.
It could have been a winning move for Miss Rhode Island when she answered the question about her feelings on a transgender Miss USA.
She stated she believes its a free country and anyone who is happy with themselves deserves to be a winner.
Times are definitely changing, it may be a long road but it seems many Americans are embracing it and supporting those who do as well. Obviously Ms. Monnin was ashamed of her original statement.
