Miss Universe Contestant Stripped of Her Crown

Puerto Rico’s 2016 Miss Universe contestant Kristhielee Caride is being stripped of her crown after a controversial interview with a Puerto Rican newspaper.

The 24-year-old beauty pageant contestant is said to have missed several public appearances and in the interview explained that she did not like being in front of the camera.

Kristhielee
blamed the situation on personal problems and apologized for her actions in a now deleted Facebook post.

“I would like to express my most sincere apologies to each and every one of my fans first of all those who have supported me from the first moment, to my work team and the organization of Miss Universe Puerto Rico. It was never my intention to make you feel bad, hurting or damaging the image of those who have helped me to be where I am today,” the former Miss Puerto Rico said.

She held the title for four months and will transfer the crown to the runner up, Brenda Jimenez.

    It is awful that she was stripped from her crown because she has social problems. That is truly upsetting.

  • Koos

    my support is hers, good girl.

    All the interviewers probably ask her the same question regarding the mix up and how she feels. Of course she’ll feel anxiety and wouldn’t want to have to deal with it. They screwed up big time. It would be one thing if she herself gave it up, but now they’re removing her crown themselves because of social problems? This entire thing is a joke. Leave the poor girl alone. This is why I don’t support these beauty contests. It’s stupid.

    God forbid a pageant girl keeps it real every once in awhile. Give the girl her crown back.
