Chrissy Teigen & Twitter Aren’t Happy with The Lack Of Diversity in Miss Teen USA’s Top 5

Well ,this isn’t surprising, on July 30th Miss Texas, Karlie Hay was crowned Miss Team USA in Las Vegas, and while the 18-year-old was filled with joy, Twitter didn’t seem to share her excitement. Twitter took to express their disappointment with the lack of diversity in the top five contestants

“Wow how can we choose from such a diverse bunch,” Chrissy Teigen sounded off on Twitter, with an image of the final pageant queens. The photo, which incited negative backlash, showed the five ladies – Miss North Carolina, Nevada, Texas, Alabama, and South Carolina – all of which were Caucasian and blonde.”

“Literally all of Miss Teen USA top 5 were white, blonde, and light eyes. Watching it last night I was like bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye,” another viewer tweeted. “It really pisses me off that apparently you have to all look like a blonde barbie to be Miss Teen USA good job US,” another chimed in.” And so it continued.

While the lack of diversity across all major industries is nothing new, it is a little shocking the beauty pageant didn’t pay closer attention to properly representing a broader demographic in its teen edition, especially after crowning Miss District of Columbia, an African-American military vet, as Miss USA only months before.”
