A beauty marred with controversy. Such is the case of Cindy Mejia, Peru's top-notch rep for this year's Miss Universe beauty quest.
The Peruvian beauty queen has been in the hot seat last year for making some rather bigoted, scathing remarks against homosexuality igniting the wrath of LGBT community and even facing Ricky Martin's fury. The pop icon reacted via twitter in response to Cindy's headstrong views pertaining to the causes of homosexuality, which prompted the latter to make a public apology. Click Here for more details.
Well everything seemed to be water under the bridge for now and her apology was well accepted, I suppose? The twenty four year-old model-turned-beautyqueen will be competing for the Diamond Nexus crown this year. Could she stand a chance? Let bygones be bygones..:-)
