Miss Delaware’s Crown Abruptly Taken Away, A woman stripped of her crown as Miss Delaware because of her age said on Friday she had done nothing wrong by entering the pageant.
Amanda Longacre said she learned on Tuesday that she was disqualified because the Miss Delaware pageant determined she violated the age requirement. On NBC’s “Today” show on Friday, a tearful Longacre said she was consulting a lawyer.
Pageant rules say Miss Delaware contestants must be no older than 24 and cannot turn 25 before the end of the year. Longacre’s 25th birthday is Oct. 22.
She said on Friday she had provided her birth certificate, driver’s license and other documents with her pageant application.
“I did absolutely nothing wrong and I want to make that clear,” Longacre said in an interview with the News Journal of Wilmington.
“Now I have lost everything, my scholarship money for school, my prizes and my crown, all because of a technicality that was not caught by the executive board.”
