The first Black Miss England is no more.
21-year-old Rachel Christie made everyone proud when she beat out her competitors and was crowned Miss England despite only receiving 9 votes from viewers. Now only four months into her term, she’s relinquishing her crown.
Rachel Christie decided to give up her crown after being accused of getting into a brawl with Miss Manchester and punching her in the face. The alleged fight was said to be over a man.
Miss England organizers released a statement over the controversy saying,
“Due to the media attention following the allegations against her, Rachel Christie has now decided to withdraw from the Miss World competition and relinquish her Miss England crown. Rachel will concentrate on clearing her name and focus on training for the 2012 Olympics until this case is resolved.”
She was scheduled to participate in the Miss World competition in South Africa later this year.
Damn! It just had to be the Black girl….
