Miss Washington --

One Bad Apple!

7/9/2008 6:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miss Washington 2007 might wanna take the crown off before flipping off the camera, getting her Beer Pong on and making suggestive oral sex gang signs.

Elyse Umemoto
Elyse Umemoto, who was the second runner-up in this year's Miss America pageant, ran on a platform promoting diversity and women's empowerment. The Evergreen State must be so proud.

Miss Washington Executive Field Director Mike Miller tells TMZ the organization is "embarrassed," and issued this lengthy statement.

Face it, young women today are lacking morals, intelligence and CLASS. This chick is a fine example.

Lovely. I'm all for young people having fun and being cool, but this skanky girl behavior is just trash. She has her crown on for God's sake. I'm not a big fan of pageants, but if she wants to be a tough girl, she shouldn't try to be Miss America. Being cheap isn't empowerment, it's just stupid. You can be edgy and different without being a sleaze.

hey youth of america...yeah she's young, and is having fun and is human...but beauty queens are role models for young girls, if she wants to act this way then she needs to take off the crown. if she wants to carry on this way then maybe a role in Girls Gone Wild should be her career calling and not wearing a crown. Obviously she doesn't care for her crown anyway, one of her friends is modeling it in one photo. I agree with the other poster that said the committee not taking her crown is whimping out...many have lost theirs over stuff equal to this...so why is she an exception?

I agree that she is a representative and should be held to higher standards. She was made aware of her obligations before she signed up for the pagent and she has disregarded the standards of the pagent. She should have her crown taken away. She quite clearly is either hanging around with the wrong people or is easily influenced, either way she is no role model or represetative for the country I live in.

The bitch should be de-crowned. What a whore. I guess not much is going on up in Washington that they think they need to keep this bitch.......I say we take a vote through the TMZ family, after all we are the pulse of the nation, and see if she's "deal or dud".
I vote DUD!!!!!!!!

There is nothing wrong with a young girl having fun...what you kids don't understand is when you are reresenting a state or country, you don't do it in front of a camera, TIA!

DUD. Get rid of her and the people who leave her there. If they think this is private what the f###k do they think public is?

I can't help but laugh at those of you who suggest her crown should be taken away. Clearly, you all aren't aware that Miss Washington 2008 gets crowned this Saturday night. So, her reign is days from being over any way. With that said, though, those of you who want to feign shock and disgust have Donald Trump to thank for this. When he allowed a Miss USA who broke the law with underage drinking to keep her crown, he basically set a precedent that anything goes with respect to behavior from pageant titleholders so get over it. Also, it's important to point out that having met this young lady and spoken to her, I'm confident that her heart is in the right place. She is a college student, folks. Anybody on here who has been of college age and acts like they've never had a few raucous times at parties is full of @#$%^&*!

This is the generation that's coming up in the world, sweet-natured, friendly, sympathetic, generous. While we weren't looking these young people have been growing up, but somehow their DNA got crossed with pit vipers, or maybe it was gila monsters, and there are moments when their affectionate nature is slightly overshadowed by just the merest tinge of reptilian venom. We who are past 60 used to look with regret at the relatively short time left to us, but these days we are cheerfully ticking off the calendar days, content in the knowledge that we won't have to see the demonic, diabolical world that will be created out of this lizard philosophy, now only its teens and early twenties.

I totally agree with comment 12! Someone needs to yank that crown off her head and then haul her butt to some etiqutte classes.....................It is just ALL wrong!


BTW, what do Eylse and Mike Miller have going on? Something smells real bad with the statement he issued!
