The husband of the runner-up in a Brazilian beauty pageant smashed the winner’s crown after his wife was placed second.
According to The Telegraph, the man stormed the stage of the Miss Gay Mato Grosso pageant, snatching the decorative headwear just as officials were placing it on winner Emannuelly Belini’s head.
It came after a closely contested final of the competition, which was open to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual, Pansexual and other (LGBTQIAP+) entrants, between Belini, from the city of Várzea Grande, and Nathally Becker, from Cuiabá.
Malone Haenisch, one of the organizers of the pageant, “vehemently condemned” the man’s behavior following the incident on Saturday.
They said he “did not consider the result to be fair and caused all this inconvenience and damage.” In a statement, the organizers said they would be taking legal action and congratulated Belini for winning the contest.
