*Mexico’s national beauty pageant director Lupita Jones confirms the country won’t send a contestant to the Miss Universe contest because of disparaging remarks by pageant co-owner Donald Trump.
Jones, who was Miss Universe in 1991 and runs the Mexico competition, tweeted that she was offended and angry “like everyone else” with Trump over his comments referring to Mexican immigrants as “criminals” and “rapists.”
She said Trump damaged the pageant and its tradition of convening countries for an event that showcases “friendship, unity and breaking down cultural barriers.”
She lauded Mexico’s media giant Televisa for deciding not to air the pageant in announcing that Mexico would not participate.
