MISS USA AND MISS UNIVERSE THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
As you may have seen earlier today Monday, June 29, 2015 our breaking news story on NBCUniversal dropping Miss USA and Miss Universe beauty pageants from the networks due to the derogatory statements on Immigrants made by it’s co-owner and producer Mr. Donald J. Trump. Also Mexico’s Televisa and Carlos Slim from Ora TV ends relationship with Miss Universe.
To be fair and heard both sides, we contacted Miss Universe Organization in New York, NY to get a statement and here is what we received, you can see it and read below their statement. You can read that Miss Universe Organization (MUO) is trying to separate from Mr. Donald J. Trump Sr.
Read Miss Universe Organization Statement on Miss USA and Miss Universe Beauty Pageants:
The 2015 MISS USA® Pageant will still take place in Baton Rouge on July 12th. We are disheartened by recent events but the show will go on.
The Miss Universe Organization operates as an independent company. In its 64 year history, and under many owners, Miss Universe has developed into a globally recognized brand, with nearly 150 franchise holders domestically and internationally, the majority of whom are small business owners.
The Miss Universe Organization is built on a foundation of inclusion and continues to be a celebration of diversity and of all cultures. This year’s Miss USA contestants represent many different ethnic backgrounds, including six Latinas (four of whom are of Mexican descent).
Annually, nearly ten thousand young women all around the world participate in MISS UNIVERSE pageant events. We continue to welcome those from all backgrounds to enter our system. Our franchisees work tirelessly every day to empower young women to be confident and to be their personal best while raising awareness and millions of dollars for philanthropic endeavors.
While world politics and other influences will undoubtedly play a role, the pageant will always seek to transcend controversy. It is unfortunate that recent events beyond our control have only served to negatively impact the women who participate in the pageant, our state directors, our sponsors and our fans. We want our supporters to know we remain committed to them and we will be conducting the pageant, regardless of the current situation. We are moving forward, full-steam ahead as planned for the next two weeks, culminating in the crowning of a new Miss USA on July 12th .

About Christopher Street West
For over 45 years, Christopher Street West (CSW) has produced LA PRIDE, a series of events celebrating the accomplishments of the LGBT community and shedding light on its continued struggle for equality. A year after the modern lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender liberation movement was launched by the mob-led rebellion at the Stonewall Inn on New York’s Christopher Street in June 1969, activists in Los Angeles’ community came together to honor the rebellion with the world’s first PRIDE Parade in Hollywood, CA. Today, the organization continues to promote equality and diversity amongst the LGBT community and its peers with a three-day event held in West Hollywood, CA. The non-profit organization is comprised of volunteers committed to the goals of human rights, education and outreach. For more information visit http://lapride.org
