miss columbia instagram miss universe steve harveyMiss Colombia responded on Instagram to host Steve Harvey‘s embarrassing gaffe at the Miss Universe pageant last Sunday.

Ariadna Gutierrez, who was mistakenly crowned as Miss Universe by Harvey, wrote that she “was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes.”

“I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent messages of support and strength,” Gutierrez continued. “Every one of you has become an incredible human being in my book and I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world. Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this.”

After the storm comes the calm. I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent messages of support and strength. Every one of you has become an incredible human being in my book and I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world. Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this. I was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes… Today because of that COLOMBIA and the LATIN COMMUNITY are being talked about in every corner of the world. I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe ??. The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible. Life continues and in the future we will find out why things happen the way they happen. Thank you all for your LOVE SUPPORT and KINDNESS. ❤️

Miss Colombia’s response to the otherwise internationally embarrassing matter is commendable.

Meanwhile, Entertainment Tonight reports that Harvey has signed a multi-year contract with the Miss Universe organization to remain as host for several years to come. This despite his colossal misstep at the end of Sunday’s live broadcast.
