She's super sorry, you guys!

Shortly after Karlie Hay was crowned Miss Teen USA on Saturday night, the beauty queen came under fire for offensive tweets from 2013 — where she repeatedly used the N-word so casually, you'd think it was Snoop Dogg's social media page.

After the Texas native found herself in the middle of a social media firestorm mere hours after winning the competition, the 18-year-old took to Twitter to explain that the incriminating tweets were "not representative of who I am as a person."

Despite the half-hearted apology not cutting it for most fans, the Miss Universe Organization stood by the winner saying they were "committed to supporting her continued growth."

When Hay stopped by Tuesday's Good Morning America to offer a real apology, the beauty queen made it clear she has grown from overcoming this "obstacle." She said:

Miss Teen USA Is Eliminating Their Swimsuit Competition — See What They're Doing Instead!

Filed under: TeensBikiniSkinPageantryViral: KidsViral: NewsControversyGirl Power

no title

FINALLY!

The Miss Teen USA competition is doing away with its swimsuit portion, and we couldn't be happier!

Honestly, we don't understand why the contestants were forced to parade around in bikinis in the first place, considering they're underage TEENS.

On Wednesday, USA Today revealed the pageant made the incredible decision to ditch the misogynistic, sexualized swimwear competition for a more family-friendly alternative!

The 51 girls competing for the crown will be trading in skimpy two-pieces for athletic wear!

In the past, organizers defended the swimsuit event, claiming that it shows the contestants' athleticism. However, the Miss Universe organization believes workout wear is a more age-appropriate way for the girls to be judged on their fitness!

Reigning Miss Teen USA, Katherine Haik, applauds the pageant's move away from bikini exploitation, saying:

Miss Teen USA Contestant Almost Committed Suicide After Horrific Bullying Over Her Infamously Bad Pageant Answer

Filed under: Sad SadBullyingPageantryViral: News

no title

This is simply awful.

As you're probably aware, back in 2007 a Miss Teen USA contestant went viral after her awkward answer to the question round left us all scratching our heads.

But while we may have been entertained by Caite Upton's garbled response to why most Americans couldn't find the U.S. on a map — she said she believed "U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don't have maps" — she didn't find the video very funny.

Trump, who has previously threatened legal action against NBC and Univision for nearly half a billion (!) dollars over the pageants in question, commented on the quick re-sale of the pageant property he had worked so hard to own outright, saying:

NBC May Follow Univision And Drop Miss Universe! Has Donald Trump Made Another Enemy?

no title

Things might not be looking so good for Donald Trump.

On Thursday, Univision announced they were pulling the plug on the upcoming Miss USA pageant — and cutting ties with the entire Trump co-owned Miss Universe Organization — because of the billionaire's racist comments during his presidential bid speech!

Now, NBC is reportedly evaluating whether or not they want to follow suit and drop the pageant from their broadcast as well!

The Miss Universe Organization puts on the Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss Universe pageants, which have aired on NBC and Univision for the past 12 years!

But sources say that NBC lawyers are currently meeting with lawyers from Univision, which is already tied up in a legal mess with the 69-year-old.

As we reported earlier, Trump is planning on suing Univision for breaking their alleged 5 year contract to air the pageant, which is set to broadcast from Baton Rouge on July 12.

If NBC pulls the plug as well, The Donald's attorneys are going to have a lot of work on their hands!

Do YOU think NBC will drop out of the Miss USA pageant?
