Miss Universe Honduras Sirey Morán was stripped of her crown, and she won’t be able to participate in this year’s pageant.
The organization claims that she had not complied with her contract,
She issued the following statement: “It is very unfortunate this has happened and I am very disappointed and hurt, violence is never the answer. I am working with proper authorities here in the United States and Honduras and I am confident in how they are handling this situation for me.”
Morán quickly fired back at Carlos Rivera, the director of Carimaxx, the organization that has the rights to the pageant in Honduras.
According to the beauty queen, a discussion over her participation in an event turned sour and things escalated quickly. She says that Rivera and another male verbally and physically attacked her to remove her cell phone after they realized she had recorded the conversation. That’s when she ran out into the streets and called the police.
