Mancini, during the disqualification announcement
CHIZMAXX – A contestant in Miss Italy pageant cried after she was disqualified by the judges due to her “transsexual” issue.
Alessia Mancini, Candidate #53, was accused of being a transsexual by some reporters, which was not proven by the competition judges. But to be able to stop the controversy, the judges disqualified the 24-year-old beauty from Lazio in the final round of the competition.
She cried in the live telecast of the said pageant.
Also, Mancini did not received enough votes due to the “transsexual” issue. Pageant observers credited her as one of Miss Italy 2010 top competitors. But due to lack of enough votes, she lost in the “final two”.
Meanwhile, Mancini stressed that the issue is only a black propaganda against her. Even the local media proved that she is indeed a 100% woman.
