Ariadna Gutierrez, Miss Colombia, who was left red-faced when she was stripped of the Miss Universe crown after a costly error on the part of the organizers has finally broken her silence on the debacle.
Host of the night, Steve Harvey had initially announced Miss Colombia as the winner of the beauty pageant held in USA and Gutierrez had been crowned before the mistake was eventually discovered.
Miss Philippines was named the actual winner with Harvey claiming responsibility for the gaffe.
Twitter has since descended on Harvey and now, Gutierrez has broken her silence.
After the storm comes the calm. I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent messages of support and strength. Every one of you has become an incredible human being in my book and I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world. Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this. I was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes… Today because of that COLOMBIA and the LATIN COMMUNITY are being talked about in every corner of the world. I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe ??. The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible. Life continues and in the future we will find out why things happen the way they happen. Thank you all for your LOVE SUPPORT and KINDNESS. ❤️
