Miss Colombia responded to falsely being named Miss Universe, resists opportunity to fry Steve Harvey.
Miss Colombia has responded to that whole incident in which she was briefly named Miss Universe by accident when she was actually the first runner-up. By now you've probably watched host Steve Harvey's 100% fuck-up or decided that it's too stressful to watch at all. The video is here, if you're into seeing people's dreams be realized and then immediately crushed in a way that's worse than never achieving them at all.
Now Miss Colombia has shared a gracious Instagram post explaining her perspective. And she didn't even incorporate any Steve Harvey jokes, unlike the rest of the Internet.
Ariadna Gutiérrez posted a photo of herself from the pageant and wrote that Steve Harvey building her up and then taking everything away was her "destiny." She explained, "I was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes... Today because of that COLOMBIA and the LATIN COMMUNITY are being talked about in every corner of the world." What a glass-half-full Instagram caption.
Gutiérrez is also getting a lot more attention than most Miss Universe winners get during their whole reign. And probably Instagram followers.
