Beauty queen stripped of title for "eating too many tacos"

The pageant has a strict "no fat chicks" policy.
A beauty queen in Texas lost her title, according to Reuters, for a variety of infractions, including eating too many tacos.

The 17-year-old Miss San Antonio, Domonique Ramirez, was initially stripped of her crown in late January, with pageant directors citing tardiness to obligatory functions, taking a modeling job not sanctioned by the organization, and gaining weight from eating too many tacos as reasons for her dismissal.

A legal battle ensued, and today the judge rendered a shocking decision that has people talking.

Today State District Judge Cathy Stryker ruled against Ms. Ramirez's request for a court order that would allow her to keep her title.

Domonique Ramirez looks OK to us.
The beauty queen's contract required her to remain at the 129 pounds she weighed at the time she won the pageant.

The video embedded below shows Ms. Ramirez giving testimony and slowly turning around on the witness stand, so the court could appraise her figure and alleged weight gain.

Winners of the Miss San Antonio crown also receive a scholarship, a place in the Miss Texas pageant, and a shot at the Miss America pageant.

Losers of the Miss San Antonio crown receive the privilege of eating as many tacos as they damn well please.

It's NORMAL for Hispanic people to eat Mexican food, including tacos! This sounds like bigotry against Hispanic culture and people.

Let us not forget that Vanessa Williams, the first black Miss America, was stripped of her title for the trumped up "scandal" of appearing in nude photos before she became Miss America. Same unfair rules as here!
