Far Right Wing Spanish Political Party Slam Beauty Queen.
Vox are not happy about the recent choice of the youth beauty queen at the local fiestas in the municipality of Otura, in Spain’s southern province of Granada. According to a post on Vox Otura’s Facebook page, the group objected to the fact that the winner was “a young Moroccan girl,” who had only been “living in Otura for two years.” The post said that the winner should have been “from Otura, Spanish and better looking.”
Not only was the post deemed racist it also turned out to be untrue.
The young Spanish girl in question has lived in Spain all her young life. She’s also lived in Otura for 4 years before entering the competition.
The Otura winning beauty queen, who has opted not to give her name, let her older sister Kauty explain the situation. On Tuesday night, in a quiet moment, Kauty asked her sister how she was feeling. “I don’t want to be the queen of the fiestas anymore,” she replied.
“I’ve lived in Spain since I was born,” explained the young beauty queen via her sister, complaining about the comments without fully understanding them. The next scheduled event at which she will appear is at Christmas, and her family is convinced that, in spite of everything, she will forget what has happened and will attend.
The young girl in question was among a group of six candidates who entered the contest on August 5, her sister explained. She went having been encouraged to do so by her friends, some of whom were her competitors. “There was also a Russian girl, but nobody said anything about her,” the sister explained. No one objected to the choice of queen at the time and the fiestas ran smoothly. On September 4 the coronation ceremony took place. “She was so happy with the party and with everything. It makes me so sad,” said the sister, “ I guess there’s good and bad the world over,” she added.
The controversy has clearly been an unexpected shock for the family.
Three reports about the post have already been filed with the Civil Guardia.
Right Wing political party Vox have now deleted the publication and the comments with it, and posted a new statement saying that it “regretted the message” and “the harm done to the family of the young Spanish woman.”
