The happiness for Miss Columbia and her supporters was indeed short-lived after Ariadna Gutiérrez was mistakenly crowned Miss Universe in a major goof up by Host of the evening Steve Harvey.
However, those few minutes for which she wore the crown made her a queen for the whole world. People from all over the world have shown her love and support at all social media platforms. Some of them even expressed their anger at host Steve Harvey for messing up the names and causing embarrassment for both Miss Columbia and Miss Philippins, the real winner of the Miss Universe title.
Ariadna will be celebrating her birthday on Christmas and she chose to break her silence after the event with a heartfelt post on instagram.
Her post read the following message..
After the storm comes the calm. I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent messages of support and strength. Every one of you has become an incredible human being in my book and I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world.
Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this. 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. I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe. The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible. Life continues and in the future we will find out why things happen the way they happen.
