As someone who has seen Miss Congeniality about 100 times, I thought beauty queens were obsessed with world peace. Unfortunately, there’s some new drama between Miss Lebanon and Miss Israel that’s more Mean Girls than Miss Congeniality. Via Instagram (the only news source that matters), not only does Miss Lebanon spell Israel wrong, she says that since the pageants started Miss Israel kept trying to take a picture with her.
While she allowed it at first, she quickly took the opportunity to crop Miss Israel out.
I never knew selfies made such a political statement (quick, better tell every guy ever on Tinder). After the Instagram went up, Miss Lebanon was under fire in a serious way. She responded by saying that when she “was having a photo with Miss Japan, Miss Slovenia and myself; suddenly Miss Israel jumped in, took a selfie, and put it on her social media.”
