On Thursday, it was announced that Puerto Rico's Miss Universe 2016, Kristhielee Caride, has been stripped of her crown just four months after winning the title.
Director of Miss Universe Puerto Rico, Desiree Lowry, revealed the organization's reason behind the decision in a press conference. "I saw the damage that she was doing and the damage that she was doing to the organization," she shared.

Lowry went on to explain that in one particular interview, the pageant queen admitted, “I just do not like cameras.”
“I wanted the earth to swallow me,” Lowry said, according to the Associated Press. “You always have to put your best face forward… It’s a given that we are going to be in front of cameras and that we have to answer all types of questions.”
While the 24-year-old brunette beauty allegedly said it'd never happen again, she reportedly went on to cancel other press events, later refusing to reschedule.
In a lengthy Facebook post, Caride apologized for letting fans down. “It was never my intention to make you feel bad, hurting or damaging the image of those who have helped me to be where I am today,” she wrote in Spanish.
The organization announced that pageant runner-up, Brenda Jiménez, will take her place.
