You won't believe this...

... but we have a new beauty pageant controversy.

In viral footage featured here, Sarah Rose Summers -- the 24-year old Nebraska native who won Miss USA in May -- is seen calling attention to fellow Miss Universe contestants Miss Cambodia (Rern Sinat) and Miss Vietnam (H'Hen Nie).

"What do you think of Miss Vietnam Nie?" Summers asks the women in the video.

"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 [nods and smiles]," Summers said prior to laughing.

"She's adorable."

After Miss Colombia asks her "how?" Summers does the imitation again.

Then, in another clip, Summers takes aim at Miss Cambodia for not also speaking English.

"Miss Cambodia is here and doesn't speak any English and not a single other person speaks her language. Can you imagine?" she asks, adding:

"Francesca said that would be so isolating and I said yes and just confusing all the time."

Summer does come across a little more sympathetic here, but it's a pretty terrible look all around to be SO dumbfounded that non-U.S. citizens don't speak English.

In response to the immediate backlash over this video, Summers said on Instagram just now:

"In a moment where I intended to admire the courage of a few of my sisters, I said something that I now realize can be perceived as not respectful, and I apologize."

She added that she would be "grateful" for an opportunity to discuss the issue with Miss Cambodia and Miss Vietnam.
