Former Miss Americas Blast Organization's Request In Search For New Leadership & Call For All Board Members To Resign In New Petition!

Filed under: TwitterPageantryControversyGirl Power

Former Miss Americas are NOT about to clean up the organization's mess — not after board members protected executives who exchanged emails so crude, you'd think they were on an Access Hollywood bus with Donald Trump.

In fact, former winner Mallory Hagan said the board of directors' request to help them find new leaders is so insulting, she's laughing at it!

As we reported, former CEO Sam Haskell resigned from the organization after leaked emails showed that he and other now-resigned execs routinely mocked the bodies and sex lives of former pageant winners. Not to mention, laughed when a writer called them c***s.

In attempt to make up for the trash talk, the board of directors said it wants former Miss Americas and state directors to help in the search for new leadership, asking each on Wednesday to nominate four people to serve on a search committee that will also include multiple board members.

To the board's dismay, however, Hagan did not take the offer as an honor, but as "an insult to every Miss America and volunteer's intelligence." She crowned the request as nothing but a shrewd attempt by the "complicit" board members to save their jobs, telling The Associated Press on Thursday:

Less than a day after the shocking reveal of leaked emails between the leadership of the Miss America pageant, 49 former Miss Americas are demanding resignations.

In case you hadn't heard, HuffPost revealed company messages between CEO Sam Haskell and others, which contained numerous examples of fat-shaming, slut-shaming, name-calling, and, frankly, scheming behind the backs of the Formers.

Now they've banded together, from 1948's BeBe Shopp Waring (now 87 years old!), to 2013's personally insulted Mallory Hagan (above) to 2017's Savvy Shields, to say enough.

1989 winner Gretchen Carlson, who already has some experience fighting a sexist exec, tweeted:

The dream of a million girls who are more than pretty… is actually a disgusting nightmare behind the scenes.

HuffPost got their hands on three years of internal emails from the Miss America organization, thanks to two inside sources disturbed by what they regularly saw. Now CEO Sam Haskell (above, right) and head writer Lewis Friedman have a lot to answer for.

In their convos, they fat-shamed, slut-shamed, and used sexist language against pageant winners and contestants.

Miss Texas just came for Donald Trump — and we're LIVING for it.

During Sunday's Miss America pageant, Miss Texas Margana Wood was asked to comment on the Trumpster's controversial remarks following the tragic violence caused by white supremacists during the August march in Charlottesville. (In case you forgot, POTUS blamed the violence "on many sides.")

Miss USA 2017 Is Crowned — But Not Without Some Controversy First!

miss usa is crowned

Say hello to our new Miss USA!

On Sunday evening, the 2017 Miss USA title was handed out and ANOTHER beauty queen from Washington, D.C. snagged the coveted title. Yup, Miss District of Columbia Kara McCullough was announced the winner during the live competition in Las Vegas!

Photos: Worst Beauty Pageant Answers Of All Time!

Miz McCullough beat out the other top three finalists, including first runner-up Miss New Jersey (Chhavi Verg) and second runner-up Miss Minnesota (Meridith Gould). And we can't say we're surprised to hear that Kara won the Miss USA crown as she's a nuclear scientist at the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission. No, really!

Not to mention, this is the second year in a row that a contestant from D.C. has walked away victorious at the celebrated pageant.

Still, McCullough's crowning doesn't come without some controversy. The scientist was dragged online for her answers regarding health care and feminism during the competition. When asked if healthcare is a right or a privilege, Kara responded that healthcare should only go to citizens with jobs — but then added that it's the country's job to make more employment opportunities so that most people can have healthcare. Huh.

See the best reactions to her answer (below).
