Oh, America!

Apparently, nothing can get you dethroned from the Miss USA organization nowadays. Well, almost nothing can get you dethroned. Oh America! Let me count the ways…

For the Current Miss California:

  • Posing topless? A-ok.
  • Being a rampant homophobe? That's cool, too.
  • Seemingly breaching your contract and speaking out for unapproved organizations while in your official role? Contract, schmontract!
  • For the former Miss USA:

  • Not showing up to your events? As long as your behavior can be blamed on alcohol.
  • Doing drugs? Cool.
  • (Alleged) Inappropriate behavior with Miss Teen USA? Fancy!
  • I guess the only thing that can get a lady thrown out is this exact combination of offenses that got Miss Nevada thrown out: "Kissing other young women, exposing one of her breasts, and pulling down her pants to show her thong underwear at a party."


    The only difference between the ones that kept their crown and the now crown-less? Beats me.

    The only possible explanation I see is that all this dethroning happens dependent on the organization you are representing. Therefore, the state that brought us gambling, legalized prostitution, and half-naked show girls has much higher moral standards than California, the Miss USA organization, and it's leader, Donald Trump.
