A Sri Lankan beauty pageant has been stalled in controversy after the reigning Mrs. World snatched the crown off the local winner’s head as she was receiving the honor.

Beauty queen Pushpika De Silva won the title of Mrs Sri Lanka 2021 but she was unvarnished of her crown by a former winner from the pageant. The whole incident was caught on air as the ceremony was being telecasted on national TV

Judges named Pushpika as the 2021 winner at the Mrs Sri Lanka final which was held at a theatre in Colombo on Sunday night. After Pushpika won the title, 2019 winner Caroline Jurie snatched the crown off of Pushika’s head and gave it to the first runner up.

The video shared on YouTube by Colombo Gazette shows Pushpika being announced as the winner of Mrs Sri Lanka 2021. Then, 2019 Mrs Sri Lanka World winner Caroline Jurie crowns Pushpika as the winner. Moments later, Caroline comes back to the stage and says that Pushpika has been debarred claiming that she is a divorcee and not married and that only married women can hold the title of Mrs Sri Lanka.

Horrified by what just happened, Pushpika was left in tears and walked off the stage. In the meantime, the first runner-up could not believe that she was being crowned as the new winner. The video has gone viral with more than 1.7 million views in two days.

The organizers have apologized to Pushpika who has clarified that she is separated and not divorced. The pageant also said that the crown was returned to the original winner Pushpika on Tuesday.

  1. Thanks for your blog post. A few things i would like to bring about is that computer system memory must be purchased should your computer still can’t cope with whatever you do by using it. One can install two RAM boards with 1GB each, in particular, but not one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should check the car maker’s documentation for one’s PC to make sure what type of memory is essential.


  2. I have learned some new things from the blog post. Also a thing to I have seen is that usually, FSBO sellers will probably reject a person. Remember, they would prefer to not use your products and services. But if you actually maintain a gentle, professional connection, offering help and remaining in contact for about four to five weeks, you will usually have the capacity to win a discussion. From there, a house listing follows. Thanks
