LETTER TO THE EDITOR – On the evening of the 15th of Nov, Latoya Moffat, former Miss St. Lucia Galaxy won the title of Miss Commonwealth International 2014, beating out all 52-commonwealth countries.
Amidst the celebration and national pride, chaos erupted, as dissatisfied participants and coordinators accused the pageant of being rigged.
Despite the lack of evidence to support their claims, these countries are determined to unveil their alleged conspiracy that St. Lucia had rigged the pageant.
It is also evident on social networking sites such as Facebook and Instagram that the winner, Latoya Moffat is a victim of what appears to cyber bullying.
Comments of malicious nature, such as Moffat not being worthy of the crown, appeared under the names of unhappy contestants and their family members.
Having questioned Moffat about the current accusations, her manager responded on her behalf:
“Latoya Moffat is incredibly disappointed and hurt by these allegations. Not only has the cyber bullying taken her by shock, as her team acknowledges all the hard work and months of preparation she applied to this pageant, but she was devastated that such untrue accusations could arise.”
“Speaking on her behalf, Latoya being a pageant contestant at an International competition where St. Lucia didn’t have a director nor any political or financial advantages, we are shocked at the poor sportsmanship of the contestants and their family members.”
“We hope, for her sake, these allegations are proven to be untrue in a timely manner so that Latoya can continue to fulfill her reign and make St. Lucia proud.”
