More Withdraw from the Miss Universe Pageant in Israel

Miss Universe Greece is not the only contestant who will be a no-show at the pageant which takes place in Eilat, Israel on 12 December. Contestants from Malaysia, Indonesia, and Laos have all bowed out of visiting the controversial venue. Barbados has also withdrawn, but cited COVID as the official reason…

Also, South Africa has withdrawn its support for Miss South Africa to attend, although so far she is refusing to withdraw. Nelson Mandela’s grandson has been prominently among those publicly urging a boycott, saying “nothing about Apartheid is beautiful”.
