BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – New Miss USA Olivia Jordan spoke of the need to discuss race relations en route to her pageant victory.
Jordan, who’s from Oklahoma, won the title during a pageant in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Sunday night.
She beat out the other four finalists to win the crown.
The pageant has been largely overshadowed by comments made by co-owner Donald Trump bashing Mexican immigrants. Broadcasters, judges and hosts pulled out of the ceremony in protest.
During a news conference after the pageant, Jordan hailed the diversity of women taking part in the contest.
She also said she’s looking forward to eating some popcorn and going to watch a movie when she gets home.
