We reported earlier that Jenna Talackova’s battle to compete in The Miss Universe Canada pageant. She has been accepted back into the competition despite being transgendered but continues to face rejection.
Jenna’s bikini photo shoot at an upscale L.A. hotel was shut down after numerous guests complained to the staff.
Sources told TMZ that Jenna was originally supposed to do the shoot in her suite at the Wilshire Hotel but the crew was unprepared so they moved it out to the pool.
The problem didn’t stem from the fact that she was born a he, but rather that she stripped down to a bikini right next to a restaurant filled with patrons who didn’t appreciate the scene.
Jenna is also to blame because she didn’t get permission from the hotel to shoot there.
Yesterday Jenna appeared at a press conference and asked that Donald Trump, owner of the pageant, eliminate the rule that contestants need to be born a female, “I want Mr. Trump to state that this rule will be eliminated because I do not want any other woman to suffer from the discrimination that I have endured.”
The transgender beauty queen got what she wanted and the Trump organization announced on Monday that it would not attempt to keep her out of the competition. However, the rule is still in place making Jenna an exception to it.
Do you think that Jenna is a plastic surgeon’s masterpiece and is exceptionally attractive despite being born a man? Do you think that bending rules in this beauty pageant is destroying its legacy?
Twitter users are divided:
Mixed feelings about having a woman born a man represent us in a miss universe pageant… Anyone care to debate??
@JennaTalackova I’m glad to hear your news & back in the Miss Universe Canada Pageant,: Congratulations! You are beautiful inside & outside
@maritimemorning Jenna definately shouldn’t be allowed to compete in the bench press portion of the Miss Universe pageant.
I’m sorry but that MAN should not be able to be in the MISS universe pageant! No offense but it’s not a tranny drag show.
http://t.co/kuQdFnAE For once I like something Trump didSo, the Transgender Ms. Canada contestant has been allowed back into the contest.
A transgendered dude wants to be in the Miss Universe pageant? Nah! I don’t care what you cut off and add on you’re still a man. XY not XX.
