Controversy has now hit the Miss Universe pageant in Thailand. A video surface of a tearful Miss Cambodia doing a live in her Facebook talking about being mock for not speaking English. Two of the contestants apologized to her, and the misunderstanding has cleared up. If you now go to the Miss Universe official page, there's a prominent photo of Miss Cambodia posted.

[> Subject: We seem to forget that many Miss Universe winners of years past did not speak english. During their reign however, they managed to learn a little english. I would NEVER vote against a Miss Universe candidate on the basis of speaking of english or not.

[> Subject: Yipes, it was actually Miss USA who started the whole controversy, which surprised me. (You can find the video on YouTube.) However, her comments about Miss Cambodia were meant to be sympathetic to her; i.e., it must be so difficult to be in a situation where you are the only person who speaks your language. I don't think she meant to be catty at all, but her tone may have come off that way. I would have expected Sarah to say it in a better way. In any case, it seems like it's all been patched up between them.

[> [> [> Subject: It's hard to say. She might have gotten one of the spots anyway, since she is very beautiful. I guess the same question applies to Spain. I'm just not sure how much controversy counts these days. It seems like MUO/IMG will do anything to get viewers to stay tuned. I don't think too many people know about the Miss Cambodia thing (except die hard fans) but lots of people have probably heard about Miss Spain. What do you think?

[> [> [> [> Subject: Video is still there. Depending on how you interpret it, (mostly) Sarah is surprised that Miss Cambodia doesn't speak English who just nods at the end of conversations. She finds it adorable, but her tone came off as somewhat catty to me. Not every contestant speaks English, why is she so surprised? Sarah hugs Miss Cambodia at the end (some say looks forced) and tries to talk to her using her phone to translate

[> Subject: She wasn't making fun of Cambodia. She actually felt sorry for her because no one could understand her and it must be sad for her. And, the last thing she said was that Cambodia was adorable. Talk about myaking something out of nothing, and I really care for MUSA..
