Miss USA apologizes for mocking rivals' English-speaking skills

Sarah Rose Summers admits she disrespected Cambodian and Vietnamese contestants

The woman who holds the Miss USA 2018 title has apologized after she was captured on video mocking two of her fellow competitors for their English-speaking skills.

In a video posted to Instagram, Sarah Rose Summers made light of Nat Rern, Miss Cambodia and H’Hen Nie, Miss Vietnam. In the video, she said of Nie: “She’s so cute and she pretends to know so much English and then you ask her a question after having a whole conversation with her and she goes …” she said before mimicking a confused nod and smile.

Then Summers makes fun of another contestant for not speaking English, apparently unaware that the language is not universally understood around the world.

“Miss Cambodia is here and doesn’t speak any English and not a single other person speaks her language. Can you imagine?” she said. “Francesca said that would be so isolating and I said yes and just confusing all the time.”

5. God, what a moron. And her little sidekicks.

And what is with young women and awful parted-down-the-middle straightened hair, overdone eyebrows, and tacky fake nails... they look "hard." Kartrashian influence?

Maybe pageants do need to go away if these three are representative of the dopes they attract...

12. I just looked at her photo. She isn't even that. Blonde and boorish. That qualifies her for Miss Fox

And not much else.

11. Did you guys really watch the whole tape?

I mean I got no dog in the fight and I think beauty pageants are archaic bullshit. But I don't see how you can completely villify this woman if you watched it all. She wasn't trying to be mean spirited she seemed to be trying to express some sort of admiration for how tough those other women were. I mean it was condescending and ignorant and typical American exceptionalist bullshit, but I don't think she was trying to put them down.
