It Looks Like People Are Actually Kind of Sick of Miss Colombia

It’s been a few weeks since the Steve Harvey Miss Universe gaffe seen ’round the world. But of course, Steve Harvey and Miss Colombia couldn’t resist a face-to-face meeting discuss the mistake that saw Miss Colombia wear, and eventually lose, the Miss Universe crown.

Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, recently appeared on The Steve Harvey Show so the two could patch things up.

Miss Colombia teased Harvey that he should learn to read cards…

Steve Harvey apologized and shed a few tears…

Then the two hugged it out and apparently squashed it.

Story over, right? Not totally. While some thought Miss Colombia was gracious…

Some people disagreed:

This person had some advice:

And this person was done. With all of it.

These reactions added to the growing chorus of people who were already sick of Miss Colombia.

And although the jokes and memes about Steve Harvey may have been funny at first, this person said it’s time to move on.

Those hoping that Miss Colombia will quietly disappear will have to wait quite a bit: Steve Harvey said he believes Gutierrez will make an appearance at next year’s Miss Universe ceremony. Harvey told E!, “I promise you. This woman will be on that stage next year.”

Three of the United States most watched beauty pageants just made the events a whole lot more colorful.

This week 28-year-old Charlotte, N.C. based attorney Cheslie Kryst was awarded the crown for Miss USA.

Her win came following pageant victories of three other Black women, Kaleigh Garris for Miss Teen USA and Nia Imani Franklin for Miss America. It’s another big Black moment in pageant history that will see Kryst in a crow and off to represent our country in the Miss Universe pageant.

Kaleigh Garris, the winner of the Miss Teen USA title, wowed audiences earlier this week when she made her win while wearing her crown of natural curls.

“The night before, I finger curled every single piece of my hair in the shower, which led to a very long shower, but it was for the greater good,” Garris told Refinery29 in an interview. “I know what I look like with straight hair, with extensions, and with my curly hair, and I feel more confident and comfortable with my natural hair.”

Now, none of the women who won the pageants are Latino but its IMPERATIVE for our community that we receive this type of representation.

Black Latinos make up a significant aspect of the Latin American community but are so rarely represented and it’s imperative that Latinas with African roots be allowed to celebrate in these exciting Black moments!

After winning the Miss Universe crown in 1996, Alicia Machado says Donald Trump called her “Miss Piggy” and demanded her to lose weight.

To Machado’s misfortune, Donald Trump had just taken over the Miss Universe organization right after she won the crown. That same year, she started gaining a significant amount of weight.

“She weighed 118 pounds or 117 pounds and she went to 160 or 170. So this is somebody that likes to eat,” Trump said publicly. Because we know he can’t keep his misogynistic thoughts to himself.

Last time we checked, that’s true for any human being. The whole weight-gain controversy turned into a spectacle to the point where Trump had Machado work out in front of media to prove that she was working on losing the weight ASAP. She says all of his verbal abuse led her to become severely depressed and battle with eating disorders for years.

Oh, and he also called her “Miss Housekeeping” – because of her accent.
