Yesterday during the Lukewarm Topic of the Day, we talked about why 18-year-old Miss Delaware Teen USA had to give up her crown.
Former Miss Delaware Teen USA, Melissa King, who was crowned this past November, had to resign after a porn video of her surfaced online.
Melissa said in the interview before the actual porn video that she was doing it for the money.
She grew up as a foster kid and her platform for Miss Teen USA was to help work with and mentor foster children.
She’s had a difficult life and is just trying to make a living. I don’t hold any judgment towards her. I think it’s hypocritical that any beauty pageant would fault her for using her looks to make money when that’s the whole point of a pageant! They make money and get attention for the way they look!
Most beauty pageant contestants say they draw the line at “selling their body” and doing porn, but being in magazines and trying to be crowned at a pageant is the same thing. They’re using their looks for money and looking down on Melissa for doing what she did to earn money is just ridiculous!
