The organizers of Miss Montenegro Universe beauty pageant has issued an apology to the newly crowned Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach for their candidate’s appropriate actions during the finals of Miss Universe.
In a video circulating online, Miss Montenegro Maja Cukic refused Wurtzbach to allow her to get near the tearful Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez during the live broadcast of the beauty pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada last December 20.
Miss Montenegro’s gesture angered most of the Filipino audience saying it’s a sign of disrespect to Wurtzbach.

“Congratulations on Pia Wurtzbach title of Miss Universe 2015. The girl is beautiful, worthy to bear the title of most beautiful girl and with her behavior and beauty to be an example for all girls around the world.”

We apologize to the fans and organizers of the Miss Philippines due to unintentional gesture of our representative, Miss Montenegro.”
