Miss Ukraine Veronika Didusenko was stripped of her crown for lying about her personal life on the application. She has been disqualified by the Miss Ukraine organization for being married and having a child. The organization in its statement said, “In accordance with the Rules for conducting the National Beauty Contest Miss Ukraine, a person who wishes to take part in the National Beauty Contest “Miss Ukraine” must comply, among other things, with the following requirements (valid for the period of the Contest): – not / was not married; – has no children,” the statement reads. “The same requirements are indicated in the official form (Official Entry Form), which is contained in the unified rules and conditions of participation in Miss World contest 2018.”
Following this decision Veronika’s fans are giving reaction in the social media.
“I do not think that the child and the family should be an obstacle to their dream,” one person commented on Veronia’s Instagram account. While another wrote, “It’s time to change the rules.”
But still, there are others who argue that a rule is a rule, and that Didusenko had no business breaking it. “The rules are the same for all, and Ukraine did not come up with them, but the founders of this world competition.”
In Veronika’s most recent Instagram post, the model thanks fans for their “sincere support at such a difficult time,” and even acknowledges her growing following since the controversy. Yahoo said, “Now, with over 11,000 followers, Didusenko could have a future as a social media influencer despite losing her crown.”
