Beauty queen stripped of crown after officials learned she is pregnant

~snip~

A Bolivian beauty queen was stripped of her title for a “breach of contract” after officials found out that she is pregnant.

Joyce Prado, 22, was crowned as Miss Bolivia Universe 2018 in June. But before making it to the end of her reign, she lost her titles as both Miss Bolivia and Miss Santa Cruz just days before she shared some personal news on Sunday.

The modeling agency responsible for the pageants, Promociones Gloria, took to its Facebook page on Friday to announce the development and cite “reasons that are strictly related to contractual breach.”

The agency went on to say that it had to safeguard the confidentiality clause and didn’t include specific details about its decision to cut ties with the titleholder.

1. The continuation of "beauty" pageants ensures the continuation of patriarchal standards so

not really too surprising, unfortunately.

5. I feel the same way

especially about these "meat parades" on US television. I would imagine that like bullfighting, they will persist much longer in macho Latino cultures.

6. I think the issue they had is that she wasn't married when she got pregnant.

Which is reprehensible of them in a different way.
