Why Miss Universe is Trolled Online?
The safety protocols, administered by Seminole Hard Rock's Safe + Sound, are modeled after Miss USA held in November 2020. Apart from quarantining contestants, they were made to undergo frequent tests in spite of asking them to wear masks and maintain social distancing.
Talking about the measures taken for the prevention of the pandemic, Paula M. Shugart, president of Miss Universe Organization, had said, "We have spent months planning and preparing safety precautions to develop this edition of MISS UNIVERSEâone that will be memorable, special and totally innovative,"
However, the contestants apparently failed to maintain social distancing in the end after they went for a group hug. This act by the contestants have not gone well with the netizens, who have trolled the organisers and the contestants.
