Puerto Rico's Miss Universe title holder is out; she doesn't like cameras

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Puerto Rico's 2016 Miss Universe contestant has been stripped of her crown because of what officials say is an attitude problem.

Her latest debacle came during an interview on March 13 with a Puerto Rican newspaper, during which Desiree Lowry, the Miss Universe Puerto Rico national director, was present.

The decision to replace Kristhielee stemmed from the beauty queen not wanting to participate in interviews. She then went on to cancel other press events and reportedly would not reschedule.

In Kristhielee Caride's place, Brenda Jimenez was crowned the new Miss Puerto Rico on Thursday during a press conference. While saying she didn't agree with the decision, Caride confirmed she had handed back her sash and crown "with dignity" in a Facebook post shared Thursday (although she has since deleted it, womp womp).

"I still haven't fully process the information", says Jimenez. "I will always have the memory of that night, November 12, where I won the title and all the experiences and handsome memories that I have had as Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2016". And for some, Kristhielee got what was coming to her.

"I wanted the earth to swallow me".

"It's a given that we are going to be in front of cameras and that we have to answer all types of questions".

Lowry told of Caride telling having personal problems and 'it' wouldn't be happening again, while failing to apologize.

It is worth mentioning here that this is first of a kind in the history of Puerto Rico.

The dethroning comes just four months after Kristhielee Caride after winning her title, after accusations that the beauty pageant victor was flippant during interviews along with telling organizers she didn't love cameras and skipping appearances for 'doctors' appointments. "It was never my intention to hurt or damage the image of everyone that helped me to be where I am today".
