While some are inspiring, the others are simply nasty, like the recent viral video of Miss USA Sarah Rose Summers making fun of Miss Cambodia Rern Sinat and Miss Vietnam H’Hen Nie over their English-speaking skills.

She pretends to know so much English and then you ask her a question after having a whole conversation with her and goes [nods and smiles],” Summers said about Miss Vietnam before doubling over with laughter.

Summers added: “She’s adorable.”

Morales asked, “How?” coercing Summers into imitating Nie once again. Then the ladies turned their attention to Sinat.

“Miss Cambodia is here and doesn’t speak any English and not a single other person speaks her language. Can you imagine?” Summers asked. “Francesca said that would be so isolating and I said yes and just confusing all the time. Poor Cambodia.”
