Default Here she is....Miss South Carolina...Making a Fool of Herself

Failed attempt at humor to say the least...

Miss SC Brooke Mosteller, Pageant Official Apologize for 'Mobile Home' Remark


Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Miss South Carolina and the Miss South Carolina pageant are apologizing for a remark about mobile homes made during last .

Here's what led to the apology. During the introductory segment of the pageant, Mosteller said, "from the state where 20 percent of our homes are mobile 'cause that's how we roll, I'm Brooke Mosteller, Miss South Carolina."

The comment drew sharp criticism from South Carolinians on social media, who said the comment was "distasteful" and misrepresented the state.

Supposedly she had a choice between that one, "Where we sell more peaches, sorry Georgia" or "Home of Hootie and the Blowfish". And people wonder why she's being criticized for choosing one that helps to perpetuate a negative stereotype about the South and South Carolina?

Yeah...she's not too smart.
She's blamed it on the writers of the pageant, who gave her several options, and she chose this one after getting feedback from several others in the 'fishbowl' environment of the pageant that it was humorous, and not offensive.

So, what- she couldn't judge for herself?

I thought it was funny. Some people take things way too seriously. Brooke is an awesome girl who maybe made a poor choice of a line. She's beautiful, smart, and a GAMECOCK! No reason to insult her intelligence over something like this.

PS She also won Miss Congeniality, so she obviously has some fans. =)

Agreed. On some online articles the things people are saying about her are 10 times worse than her line about SC. I too thought it was funny.

Honestly there was probably some kind of rule against putting down another state or specifically mentioning one or either she didn't want to be the one to do that. If I had to guess from my limited pageant world knowledge.

I like the Georgia jab one, but if she would have said that everyone would be in an uproar because a contestant crossed the lines and making negative comments about another person and their state ... or some garbage like that.

It was funny, people need to get over it. Everyone is saying it's embarassing that people think we're all mobile homes or whatever. She said "where 20%" so that means 80% of the state DON'T.

It perpetuates a Southern stereotype, which is why I thought it was a bad choice. It would be like Miss Mississippi saying " home of the nation's highest gonorrhea rate"

I think this is the biggest issue people have with it. The South has worked hard to try to tear down the stereotypes that we're all poor, uneducated, backwoods hicks, and this did not help at all.

Let's be honest, I don't think anyone other than South Carolinian's listened to the words coming out of their mouth. I certainly know I wasn't really listening to any other state's cheesy joke, just looking at the girl.

But I do remember Miss DC's "Listening to your phone calls from the nation's capital. Just kidding!" Awkward.
