Regina George, is that you? This is basically like the most dramatic reality show, but condensed into 1 minute lol. @sarahrosesummers hopefully will prove that ignorance will not win you a @missuniverse title…whatever that means these days. This is basically what normalized xenophobia looks like. If she’s trying to show empathy, the condescending, intolerant tone tells a different story. A reminder that you’re participating in a competition in a country/continent where English is NOT the primary language.

Miss Colombia, Valeria Morales & Miss Australia, Francesca Hung were seen laughing alongside Sarah Summers in the video.

Following the video surfacing throughout on the internet, the trio faced a lot of heat from people all around the world, especially, Miss USA, Sarah Rose Summers who did all the talking.

Sarah later apologized for her comments on her fellow Miss Universe Contestants. She posted a photo on her instagram hugging her fellow contestants and wrote a caption which said:

@MissUniverse is an opportunity for women from around the world to learn about each other’s cultures, life experiences, and views. We all come from different backgrounds and can grow alongside one another.
In a moment where I intended to admire the courage of a few of my sisters, I said something that I now realize can be perceived as not respectful, and I apologize. My life, friendships, and career revolve around me being a compassionate and empathetic woman. I would never intend to hurt another. I am grateful for opportunities to speak with Nat, Miss Cambodia, and H’Hen, Miss Vietnam, directly about this experience. These are the moments that matter most to me.

The matter as of now seems to be resolved as Miss Cambodia later posted the same picture and said:

My friendship and sisterhood in Miss Universe will forever be kept in my heart.
Our experience have given us the opportunity to show and learn different cultures.
I speak the language of love, respect and understanding.
I love you my sisters.♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
