In a scene almost straight out of Miss Congeniality, the runner-up in the Miss Amazonas 2015 tore the crown right off winner Carolina Toledo’s head. The second place beauty queen, Sheislane Hayall, took to her Facebook page after the event to explain her actions:
I wanted to express my disapproval of the actions in the preparations for Miss Amazonas 2015. I do not regret having protested. I believe I have planted change in this great contest. I wanted something clean and honest.
Toledo will go on to compete in the Miss Brazil pageant, and has not commented on the incident, but we imagine she would smile graciously and say, “World peace.”
