Dethroned Myanmar beauty queen takes crown

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — The first Myanmar national to win an international pageant has been stripped of her title for being rude and dishonest, and has allegedly run off with the expensive crown and breast implants. Her picture was blacked out on the organization's website and replaced with the word "dethroned" Myanmar, which only recently emerged from a half-century of military rule, started participating in international beauty pageants again in 2012. Two years later, May Myat Noe was crowned Miss Asia Pacific World. David Kim, director of media for the Seoul-based pageant, said Friday the 18-year-old was informed of the decision to retract the title earlier this week. He says she has since absconded with the $100,000 bejeweled tiara and $10,000 breast implants, paid for by the pageant's sponsors.
