A new Miss Universe was crowned last night, as Miss Colombia Paulina Vega took home this annually coveted crown.
But the United States representative made a major impression of her own; partly due to her bikini body, partly due to her runner-up finish... and largely due to her answer during the interview segment of the competition.
Asked what message she would send to terrorists around the world, Sanchez replied with answer befitting of Miss Congeniality.
"I know as Miss USA I can always spread a message of hope and love and peace, and I would do my very best to spread that message to them and everyone else in the world," the brunette responded to this inquiry, prompting a backlash on Twitter.
"I feel like I'm watching the trailer for Miss Congeniality 3," one user wrote, while another added:
"Miss USA said she would try to spread love and hope to terrorists. Yes, if only we would've tried offering love and peace to ISIS."
In fairness to Sanchez, the question is ridiculous. Few politicians have the answer, let alone a woman who has trained most of her adult life to look pretty in an evening gown.
But can we focus on the real injustice of the Miss Universe pageant please? How did Miss Jamaica only finish fifth?!?
