Twitter Is Popping Off About Rumors Of Miss USA Being Rigged

On Oct. 3, Miss Texas R’Bonney Gabriel was crowned as Miss USA 2022 — but the competition drew a lot of attention and criticism as numerous contestants have alleged that the whole thing was rigged. The tea began to brew when multiple contestants walked off stage as soon as the crown was placed on Gabriel’s head. (Her Campus previously reached out to Miss USA for comment but did not hear back by the time of publication.) TikTok is now on the case, with users posting things that are a *tad* suspicious, including that Gabriel began to indulge in her price package immediately after she was crowned and that she went to NIZUC Resort and Spa — one of Miss USA’s sponsors — eight weeks before winning the competition. And although I don’t watch beauty pageants, I have to say: The tea is piping hot, and like most of the internet the past day, I’ve been down the TikTok pageant drama rabbit hole.

The conversation has now spilled over to Twitter, with users doing what they do best: sharing funny tweets and memes about the whole ordeal, obvi. Here are some of the funniest ones.
