Arna Ýr Jónsdóttir, Miss Iceland 2015, has quit a beauty pageant after the judges told her to ‘lose weight’ and labeled her as ‘too fat’.
Miss Grand International beauty contest’s owner sent Jónsdóttir a message informing her about the diet chart she need to follow. As reported by Iceland Monitor, the message advised her “stop eating breakfast, eat just salad for lunch and drink water every evening until the contest.”
Miss Iceland was stunned by the demand which was directed to her by the pageant owner, Nawat Itsaragrisil, through an official spokesperson.
Jónsdóttir said: “If the owner of the contest really wants me to lose weight and doesn’t like me the way I am, then he doesn’t deserve to have me in the top 10.
