The Polemic


Wendy Esparza won the Miss Mexico Pageant at the Jardines de México park in Jojutla, Morelos on October 25, 2014. A few months later Televisa - the largest mass media company in Mexico - Lupita Jones and the Nuestra Belleza Mexico Organization decided to cut ties to Donald Trump, who was then a part-owner of the Miss Universe Organization since 1996, and thus pulled out Mexico's delegate from participating in the Miss Universe 2015 pageant.

This was due to the controversial remarks the American business magnate made about Mexican immigrants during his presidential candidacy speech on June 16. In september WME/IMG has added another event franchise to its holdings, cutting a deal with Donald Trump to acquire the Miss Universe Organization. IMG had already worked with Miss Universe on licensing deals in the past. With new owners it was decided that Mexico would return to Miss Universe.
