Sri Lanka Winner Injured After Another Paageant Contestant Ripped Crown Off

The winner of Mrs. Sri Lanka was injured after another queen ripped her crown off her head during the ceremony.

Just a few moments after Pushpika De Silva won the title, 2019 Mrs. Sri Lanka, seized her crown during the national broadcast. The former winner claimed De Silva couldn't be named the winner because she is divorced. The winner is meant to go on to represent Sri Lanka at the Mrs. World competition, which Jurie won in 2020.

In the video, you see shortly after De Silva was crowned the winner, she says "I have a small request, as for the Mrs. World, there is a rule that you have to be married and not divorced." She said the crown should go to the first runner-up and then walks over to De Silva and takes the crown off her head. After untangling the crown from her hair, she places it on the runner-up, the video shows. De Silva left the stage in tears and the runner-up began crying.
