In an extremely dramatic climax to the Miss Universe 2015 competition, Miss Colombia was declared the winner. Just moments later, however, Steve Harvey, who was hosting the show, announced that he’d made a huge mistake and Miss Philippines was the actual winner of the title.

Now, there is backlash from all the world against Steve Harvey and against the Miss Universe pageant, and none so venomous as that from the Colombian community themselves who still believe that Miss Colombia deserves the crown.

The aftermath of the Miss Universe 2015 competition has gotten pretty ugly as people make all sorts of accusations about the outcome. Miss Colombia herself is being laughed at and was called “Miss Universe for 3 minutes” in Colombian headlines. “Universal Error,” another newspaper called her on their front page.

“It wasn’t a mistake by Steve Harvey, it was a dirty humiliation, a manipulation to make Miss Colombia look ridiculous in front of the world,” a viewer commented on a clip of Steve Harvey being handed an envelope after his mistake had been made that went viral.

As Miss Colombia’s nation seethes from the humiliation, a hashtag began trending: #Lacoronaserespeta, which means ‘the crown must be respected.’ Despite the fact that Miss Philippines was declared the rightful winner, many still believe the crown should remain upon Miss Colombia’s head where it first sat.

In fact, more than 26,000 people believe that the Miss Universe 2015 crown should be taken back from Miss Philippines and given to Miss Colombia again. A netizen named Bryan Herrera started a petition on Change.org in hopes of seeing this happen, and as of right now, 26,620 people have signed the petition to show their support for Miss Colombia.

Juan Manuel Santos, the president of Colombia, posted a tweet praising their nation’s candidate which translates to “For us, you will always be Miss Universe! We’re very proud!”
