The 2018 Miss America cried out that she has been bullied, manipulated and silenced by the pageant’s leadership, in what could be addressed to be an open letter.
In a letter sent to her predecessors, Cara said she chooses to cry her feelings out not minding the consequences.
CARA MUND LETTER READS:
Gretchen Carlson is chairwoman of the Miss America Organisation, and Regina Hopper is its chief executive.
“Our chair and CEO have systematically silenced me, reduced me, marginalised me, and essentially erased me in my role as Miss America in subtle and not-so-subtle ways on a daily basis
Her letter exponentially increased the turmoil surrounding the pageant three weeks before the next Miss America is crowned.
CARA MUND ACCUSE MISS AMERICA LEADERSHIP IN HER LETTER:
” Let me be blunt. I strongly belief that my voice is not heard, or wanted by our current leaders of Miss America. Nor do they have an interest in knowing who I am and my experiences relate to positioning the organisation for the future,” Says Cara Mund.
” Our chair and CEO have systematically silenced me, reduced me, marginalised me, and essentially erased me in my role as Miss America in subtle and not-so-subtle ways on a daily basis.
” After a while, the patterns have emerged, and the sheer accumulation of the disrespect, passive-aggressive behaviour, belittlement, and outright exclusion has taken a serious toll.”
Mund said she had been left out of interviews, not invited to meetings and called the wrong name.
Cara, however, spoke on the troubles She’s facing with pageant leadership in an interview earlier this month with the Press of Atlantic City.
Cara stated she was swiftly punished by the leadership, for having her speech cut to 30 seconds, during a televised farewell speech and was told a dress she had been approved to wear in the traditional “show us your shoes” parade cannot be worn.
