A video in which she allegedly makes racist comments against her colleagues ended up burying Fernanda Pavisic’s dreams of continuing to represent her country in beauty pageants. And it is that Miss Bolivia herself shared a clip on her social networks in which, while she was seeing photographs of the candidates for Miss Universe 2022, she was qualifying them in sections such as “doñas,” “thank you for participating,” and pointing to one of them as “Miss Potosí,” making a mocking reference to the Bolivian altiplano department.

This situation led the Potosinista Civic Committee (Comcipo) to demand the dismissal of Fernanda Pavisic and the removal of her crown for her “discriminatory and racist” acts, in addition to publicly apologizing to the current representative of Potosí for her statements.

Given this, Pavisic described the decision to remove her from her crown as unfair, after a controversial video that went viral on social networks in which the then representative spoke with a person about the other candidates for that beauty pageant in a mocking tone. . “The decision to withdraw the Miss Bolivia crown is absolutely unfair because I never made racist or discriminatory comments or statements against anyone,” he said.
