Miss Universe Puerto Rico messed with the wrong puertorriqueña.
Less than a week after Kristhielee Caride was dethroned of her Miss Universe Puerto Rico title for her alleged bad attitude and unwillingness to take photos, fans of the Isabela beauty queen created a Facebook page demanding she be returned her rightfully earned crown.
"We want Kristhielee Caride back," reads the Facebook page’s description in Spanish. "The community is tired of their outrage and exploitation of our favorites."
But her fans didn’t stop there. They’re also calling for the removal of those who stripped Caride of her title.
“Luisito and Desiree, be gone. The people are tired of your abuses and exploitation of our models,” it reads, referring to Miss Universe Puerto Rico franchise holders Desiree Lowry and Luis Vigoreaux.
In a recent interview, Caride addressed accusations of her rude behavior.
"At no point in the video do you see a disrespectful Kristhielee, to the organization or the reporter," she says on the Puerto Rican talk show Lo Sé Todo. "I see a scared Kristhielee, full of panic."
More than 3 thousand people have liked the Facebook page and others are using the hasgtag #YoApoyoMiReina to support Caride.
Caride was replaced by Aguadilla beauty queen Brenda Jiménez.
