    Miss Universe contestant Sarah Rose Summers, representing the US, was accused of mocking another Miss Universe contestant's English language skills. The contest, which is currently taking place in Bangkok, Thailand, and will air on December 17, includes women from 94 countries competing for the crown.

    In a now-expired Instagram Live video, Summers spoke with Miss Colombia Valeria Morales and Miss Australia Francesca Hung about their thoughts on Miss Vietnam H'Hen Nie.

    Summers, a 24-year-old from Omaha, Nebraska, said: "She's so cute and she pretends to know so much English, and you ask her a question after having a whole conversation with her and she … [smiles and nods]."

    The three then went on to talk about Miss Cambodia Rern Sinat.

    "Miss Cambodia is here and doesn't speak any English, and not a single person here speaks her language," Summers said. "Poor Cambodia."

    The comments were made as the pageant is being held in Thailand, where English is not a common language.


    While the original Instagram Live video has expired, other accounts, including the popular account Diet Prada, posted the clips and compared Summers to Regina George from the film "Mean Girls."

    Diet Prada's post caption read: "Regina George, is that you? This is basically like the most dramatic reality show, but condensed into 1 minute lol. @sarahrosesummers hopefully will prove that ignorance will not win you a @missuniverse title...whatever that means these days."

    The caption called Summers' comments "normalized xenophobia" and noted the competition is taking place in a country where English is not the primary language.

    Commenters also condemned the behavior, with people calling it "bullying" and saying they were "disappointed" with the women.

    "Dont expect that even one of you, three is gonna make it, even to the top 3. YOUR COUNTRIES ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED ON YOU, for sure," said one commenter.

    Other commenters defended Summers, with one saying: "I don't think they meant to belittle their non-English speaking colleagues. They were even amazed how the ladies are able to hold up and stay composed despite the language barrier."
