Wife comes second in beauty pageant, Husband breaks winner's crowntext_fields
A video from an LGBTQ+ beauty pageant in Brazil has gone viral for all the wrong reasons. The runner-up's husband climbed onto the stage and snatched the winner's crown and smashed it.
According to local news outlet Globo, one of the attendees recorded the incident.
At the Miss Gay Mato Grosso 2023 pageant, the finalists were Nathally Becker and Emannuelly Belini. The video showed a woman carrying the crown and approaching them. Before the reveal, she moved the crown on top of the two contestants. Finally, it was announced that Belini had won. When the woman proceeded to place the crown on Belini's head, Becker's husband climbed onto the stage. He pulled away the crown from the woman's hands and smashed it on the floor. He also yelled and pulled his wife away from the winner.
Security tried to take the husband away and the wife appeared to be shocked along with other people on the stage.
"He did not consider the result to be fair and caused all this inconvenience and damage. We vehemently condemn the incident that occurred at the time of the crowning of the elected Miss when the partner of Miss Cuiaba, who was classified in second place, invaded the stage and aggressively destroyed the crown," said pageant coordinator Malone Haenisch.
