Donald Trump fires back at 'hypocrite' Miss Universe titleholder Paulina Vega


Miss Universe Paulina Vega is being urged to give up her crown to protest organization owner Donald Trump's harsh remarks about Mexicans. Trump has called her a 'hypocrite' for not stepping down herself
 

Real-estate magnate and presidential candidate Donald Trump blasted another one of his critics early Sunday morning.
Trump said the reigning Miss Universe pageant winner, Colombia's Paulina Vega, was a "hypocrite" for criticizing him without giving up her award.
"Miss Universe, Paulina Vega, criticized me for telling the truth about illegal immigration, but then said she would keep the crown-Hypocrite," Trump, who helps run the pageant, tweeted at roughly 5 a.m.
According to the Associated Press, Vega said last Thursday that Trump's controversial comments about Mexico were "hurtful and unfair" but she had no intention of giving up her crown "because the Miss Universe organization does meaningful social work in communities around the world."
She was referring to comments made during the Republican businessman's June 16 campaign launch, in which he railed against Mexico for supposedly sending its "rapists" and drug runners to the US.
"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," Trump said then, according to a transcript. "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
Several prominent companies have cut ties with him. These include Macy's, which has a Trump clothing line and fragrance, and two television stations that were going to air the upcoming Miss USA pageant.
Trump reacted aggressively to each of the provocations. He said he is suing Univision for $500 million and slammed NBC for being "weak."

End Of The Year Review - Pageantry In 2021

  And the winner is... Miss Quasi-Normal. Runners-up include Miss Apartheid Universe and Miss Covid World.         2021 pageantry was characterized by a gradual return to normalcy as pageant competitions – which had been cancelled or postponed in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic – succeeded in staging physical productions while paying close attention to universal safety guidelines. Even major events like the Tokyo Summer Olympics, which was cancelled in 2020, successfully took place in 2021. Miss Universe and Miss Grand International held two editions (one each for 2020 and 2021), The Miss World finals was postponed for March 2022 after several contestants had tested positive for COVID-19 in Puerto Rico which hosts the pageant. The year was also a milestone for Miss Universe and Miss World’s 70th anniversary and Miss America’s 100th anniversary.
