The Miss Universe Organization issued a statement via its Instagram account.

MUO-Logo-300x300The 2015 Miss USA pageant will still take place in Baton Rouge on July 12th. We are disheartened by recent events but the show will go on.


The Miss Universe Organization operates as an independent company. In its 64 year history, and under many owners, Miss Universe has developed into a globally recognized brand, with nearly 150 franchise holders domestically and internationally, the majority of whom are small business owners.


The Miss Universe Organization is built on a foundation of inclusion and continues to be a celebration of diversity and of all cultures. This year’s Miss USA contestants represent many different ethnic backgrounds, including six Latinas (four of whom are of Mexican descent.)


Annually, nearly ten thousand young women all around the world participate in Miss Universe pageant events. We continue to welcome those from all backgrounds to enter our system. Our franchisees work tirelessly every day to empower young women to be confident and to be their personal best while raising awareness and millions of dollars for philanthropic endeavors.


While world politics and other influences will undoubtedly play a role, the pageant will always seek to transcend controversy. It is unfortunate that recent events beyond our control have only served to negatively impact the women who participate in the pageant, our state directors, our sponsors and our fans. We want our supporters to know we remain committed to them and we will be conducting the pageant, regardless of the current situation. We are moving forward, full-steam ahead as planned for the next two weeks, culminating in the crowning of a new Miss USA on July 12th. -MUO

      • i should really shut the hell up already!…i am so fucking desperate to hide my obviously overwhelming envy for the pinoy that i come up with the stupidest and dumbest things to say lacking in any fucking logic whatsoever just to hide how much i crave to be part of this glorious race…my head is so full of shit that there is just no more room for thinking! LOL

  1. They are not racist remarks by Mr Trump, he has the right to defend his country. It is like all Western countries people from overpopulated countries flooding the social welfare systems when jobs are getting scarce for all. Why cant developing nations stop being so male domineering for their ego. It is a males world as men have more choice over jobs but if developing nations just stop marrying their daughters off at 12 to 20 where they become a grandma by 30 while our kids are just walking down the isle those nations will be better off. You don’t have kids if not enough jobs, you learn from successful countries and teach you home countries why they are better countries and equal opportunity for genders and education for girls is one them. also you have stop corrupt leaders getting in spending all the foreign aid on private planes and realestate instead of the right things. You cannot see it but west is going down tube because of the financial strain you put on our nations. I suppose when it happens USA will mean nothing to you and in meantime you rock up with hands out. UN run to them they want the west to fall so we become communist. China and Russia run the show UK and USA have only proposal rights. China and Russia have some nasty depopulation plans in place and it is against all races accept them. Look it up. UN has enough money to give everybody in world 500 thousand us dollars, corrupt as but China and Russia help themselves to the till.
    Why don’t they pay foreign aid? Wake up

    • I remind you that the richest man on earth is Mexican, his name is Carlos Slim. in Mexico there are qualified people, and those crossing ilegaly the US Mexico border are hard worker people who wants to develop a better life to their families. Donald Trump label Mexicans as the worst people on earth. in Mexico I am middle class and I live very well in Mexico, sometimes I travell to the USA by airplane and I stay in nice hotels and make some shoppings, does that makes me a drug delaer or a rapist? The real drug dealers are from Mexico and USA and is a business of the two countries, they have passport, US Visa

  2. Miss universe is an international & traditional event. It should be organized by an international organtization not just by an american businessman. as they say it is the beauty counterpart of the olympics so it should be one

    • Yes. Sad but true. For the past years it has becoming an american production just like the other nbc show. With american guest, american judges, even american celebrity hosts. It shoul be a contribution of international community. international, world class production is what miss universe contest /final proper should be.

  3. Miss Universe should crown women from Asia, Europe and Africa also and not only selfish slut latinas again and again.

      • Don’t be a racist to African, European and Asian women asshole. Bcoz they too need a chance. They are smart and intelligent and educated. Latinas ate hi rained educated prostitites who know how to flaunt with the hosts and judges and make them win. Donald trump is a pimp who ducks these latinas and gives them to win. You mean only latina women r hot. What about other nations aren’t they good looking too. Think abefore you speak shithead bcoz u support trashy lstinad whores.

        • It seems that you defend beauties from other continents by calling Latinas “sluts” and “prostitutes”. It’s clear that you are a racist, too!

          • I am not a racist you are. I defend others bcoz there are so many people in this world and all need a chance. You on the other hand like prostitutes and these are available in abundance in latina nations like Venezuela Puerto Rico etc. So shut up and let other nations win

          • Allan, let me tell you something.
            First, based on what could you say that I like prostitutes?
            Second, prostitutes could be considered a social issue not only present in Latin American countries. European and Asian societies also deal with it. Based on what statistics and evidence that you name Venezuela and Puerto Rico as places abundant in prostitutes, or significantly more abundant than other countries?
            Third, you can’t have your opinion respected by calling others to shut up.
            I completely agree with you that every country should have a fair chance to win the competition. Do you know this before concluding that I am a racist? Read my previous comment. Did I say that I reject your view that Europeans or Asians should not win? But you know what, I concluded that you are a racist because you call women from Latin American with nasty names. I agree with your main point of view, but I reject how you argue for it! Take some critical thinking class!
