Mexico Won't Send Contestant To Miss Universe

Mexico's national beauty pageant director has confirmed that the country won't send a contestant to the Miss Universe contest because of insulting remarks by Donald Trump, an owner of the pageant. Lupita Jones made the announcement via her official Twitter account. Jones wrote that she was offended and angry "like everyone else" with Trump over his comments referring to Mexican immigrants as criminals and rapists. She said Trump damaged the pageant and its tradition of convening countries for an event that showcases "friendship, unity and breaking down cultural barriers." She lauded Mexico's media giant Televisa for deciding not to air the pageant.
