Those beauty pageant rumors are true…girls are catty. Miss New York Nina Davuluri is being accused of calling Miss America Mallory Hagan “fat as f**k” just days before the Miss America 2014 pageant this weekend and it was all caught on tape. After being crowned Miss New York on July 16, Davuluri allegedly called Miss America Mallory Hagan as “fat as [bleep]” in her hotel room…and another beauty queen heard the conversation and recorded the diss along with other people in the room making comments.
A source told the NY Post, “Davuluri invited friends back to her hotel room after her win. A girl in the next room overheard their conversation, and was so offended she decided to tape part of it. A friend of Davuluri was supposedly heard making racist remarks, and Davuluri is allegedly heard on the tape blasting Miss America, ‘Mallory’s fat as [bleep].’ The recording has been making the rounds of pageant contestants and officials. Her comments were brought to the board of the Miss America pageant.” Pageant organizers say Davuluri didn’t do anything wrong.
Davuluri has taken to Facebook to apologize saying that statements were made about Hagan were not from her, but others in her room. “I want to apologize for the awful statements made by people in my room . . . There were people who claimed to be my supporters and said things I never agreed with, nor supported . . . I was never a part of the words or statements that may have been hurtful . . . I’m sorry if someone said something that was inappropriate.”
A rep for Miss America said, “The situation was investigated fully back in July and there is no validity to the story whatsoever. Miss New York spoke to Mallory Hagan to let her know there was no validity and to apologize if she was offended in any way.”
This all seems so mean, hopefully people just grow up! Now let’s see who takes home the crown?
