Miss USA contestant Sheena Monnin is making it very clear she won’t be intimidated by Donald Trump and threats of legal action.
The 27-year-old is in hot water after accusing the Miss USA pageant of being rigged, and is standing by her beliefs, despite pressure to make it all go away.
In a statement on her Facebook on Friday, Monnin made her position very clear:
“I want to make it clear to all, should the opportunity present itself, I will NOT be bought off, I will NOT be bullied, into silence, I will NOT be pressured into changing or recanting what I believe to be true. I consider it to be my moral obligation and my social obligation to do what is right, to fight for justice, to stand for truth. I believe it is important for every one of us to individually and collectively live a principled life. If we do not stand up for what we believe is right, then not only will we suffer, but our future generations will suffer.”
“If you are facing trials in your life, if you feel beaten down or tempted into silence, be encouraged!! You are not alone!! We must fight together for integrity, honor, justice, and honesty. Fair play must be the standard, not the exception. Let us live with respect and gratitude, with pure hearts not afraid to stand up for the truth. Thank you for your support. Thank you for your kindnesses. Thank you for the heart you have shared with me!”
