ICYMI, host Steve Harvey crowned the wrong woman on Miss Universe yesterday, December 21. Just as Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez started to blow kisses and wave at her fellow contestants, Harvey had to step back onto the stage to announce that the real winner was Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach.
After the crown had been put on the head of the rightful owner, the live broadcast was cut immediately. But something else transpired right after.
Missosology, a site that covers beauty pageants, uploaded a clip showing what happened after the broadcast.
In the one-minute and 22-second long video, it can be seen that some candidates surrounded Ariadna to show sympathy. Pia herself had wanted to empathize but that's when the heartbreaking moment occured: The other candidates snubbed, blocked, and practically shooed her away.
It was good that they were trying to comfort Ariadna, but surely, they could have treated our queen more gracefully as a Miss U candidate should. (If only the gay community of the Philippines had been there to defend Queen Pia!)
