The scandal ended the beauty contest “Mrs. Sri Lanka 2021”.
It was initiated by one of the members of the jury. During the award ceremony, she learned that the woman who was given the crown was divorced. Unexpectedly for everyone, the judge of the contest approached the winner and began to tear the decoration from her head. Then she gave the crown to the second beauty, telling the public that the coronation of a divorced woman is against the rules.
As a result, the organizers of the contest apologized for the incident, saying that Mrs. Pushpika De Silva had separated from her husband, but had not yet divorced, and returned the crown to the woman.
