Apparently, Miss USA along Miss Columbia and Miss Australia criticized two other contestants for not being able to speak English properly. In a video that went viral, Miss USA mocked Miss Vietnam by saying: ‘’She’s so cute and she pretends to know so much English, and then you ask her a question after having a whole conversation with her and she goes—.” And when she realizes she went off the limits, she adds that Miss Vietnam is adorable. Later, they started talking about Miss Cambodia saying that she does not speak English and none of the other Contestants speak her language.
