On Wednesday night, television network Televisora de Costa Rica announced on its nightly news program that it would not broadcast the Miss Universe pageant unless Donald Trump retracted his statements and apologized, or resigned from the pageant.
Miss Nicaragua 2013 Nastassja Bolívar had her crown taken away, according to a statement from the country's local Miss Universe franchise. The surprise move has shocked the country.
The director of the franchise, Karen Celebertti, decided that Bolívar "will have no involvement in the official events" for the Miss Nicaragua Organization. Celebertti alleged that the conflict began shortly after Bolívar was elected to represent Nicaragua, and insubordination led to the beauty queen losing her title.
