Moments after winning the new Miss Universe title in a drama-filled announcement of the winner, Wurtzbach told reporters that she feel sorry about Miss Colombia and to the Latino community.

“I’m very sorry, I did not take the crown from her and I wish her well in whatever she wants to pursue after this pageant,” she said.

She also said : “I hope that I did not upset anybody like the Latino community, especially the fans of Miss Colombia.”

“I’m the voice of Miss Universe now, so I’d like to send my apologies for any confusion that happened,” she added.

The pageant’s host, comedian Steve Harvey, misread his cue card and initially announced Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, as the winner.
