SCARY: Look What ISIS just did to newly-crowned Miss Iraq…
Beauty queens have been suffering in the news lately. First, Miss Colombia was crowned and then de-crowned when Steve Harvey mistakenly named her as the winner at the Miss Universe pageant.
Then Miss Puerto Rico was forced to step down after posting tweets supportive of Donald Trump and criticizing Muslims.
But that’s nothing compared to what Miss Iraq is having to endure.
Shaima Qassem Abdulrahman, a 20-year-old economics student is the first woman to be crowned Miss Iraq since 1972, winning the contest on Saturday.
But on Tuesday, she received a phone call telling her to join the ranks of ISIS or she will be kidnapped, according to a report by the Kuwaiti daily al-Watan.
NBC News says “More than 150 women applied for Miss Iraq pageant, which organizers said was a chance to “create life in Iraq” and “revive our country” after years of bloodshed and internal chaos.
But a backlash saw 15 contestants drop out of the competition, according to one of the judges, Iraqi fashion designer Sinan Kamel. Reuters reported that least two of these women had received death threats.”
