I just listened to what Miss USA said regarding Miss Cambodia and Vietnam. Actually I thought what she said about Miss Vietnam was worse than what she said about Cambodia. Either way though, it was tacky, in-called for, and simply catty. I don't think it reached to the level of bullying though. She did apologize, but what she said resonated with everyone.

[> Subject: P.s. I went back and forth on this. I thought the reaction might have been overblown until I thought more on the subject. We want to teach our children right. You don't critisize someones accent, or lack of speaking english. There was no requirement to speak english so the catty remark against Vietnam was childish. That said, Miss USA wasn't even close to my choice at Miss USA. Damn, I didn't even have her in my top 5!

[> [> Subject: She lost all the way. It's one thing to be catty and get called out, it's quite another to try to be nice and come out catty as hell. That's even worse. Not good for a spokesperson.

[> Subject: Yes, it seemed like she was actually trying to sympathize with Cambodia for being the only person at the pageant who spoke her language, but the comments about Vietnam came across much worse. The key thing is that she shouldn't have even been talking about the other contestants at all (Siera Bearchell, Miss Canada 2016, pointed this out in her review). It's fine to just say "Oh, I'm friends with Miss Vietnam" or whatever, but it seems weird to say anything at all beyond that.
