Be careful on what you tweet! Less than 48 hours after she was crowned, Miss Universe Paraguay Sally Jara, is under fire for her tweets she made a year ago. The tweets were considered racist and discriminatory and the Paraguayan press are all over it. About a year ago, Sally Jara posted tweets making fun of fat people as well as claiming to have pushed a fat black girl. In her first post she made fun about the claim that what matters most in a relationship is love and not the physical characteristics of a person. In her second post she claimed, “Yesterday I pushed a fat black girl when I turned around” and made fun of the girls appearance.
One press report said that Sally claimed her twitter account was hacked. This is a rather ridiculous claim as the tweets were made a long time ago. The account was since then removed online but questions were raised over the attitude and personality of the new Miss Universe Paraguay. However, during a live interview yesterday in Teleshow, Sally has finally admitted that she made the tweets but denied that she is a racist or a person who discriminates. “Yes, I wrote these in 2012,” she said “But it was intended for a specific person that was bothering me at that time and it was never my intention to offend others. I never discriminated anyone. I was and will always be respectful.”
