Torrent of racist messages … new Miss Algeria 2019 responds to criticism (Video)


Miss Algeria 2019 Khadija Ben Hamou faced a torrent of racist abuse after beating, on January. 5th, 16 other women from the four corners of the country.


A flood of internet users disputed the judges’ choice, mainly due to the colour of her skin. They commented on her appearance, including her hair, weight and features. When other social media users began to call out those spouting racist abuse, some Twitter users maintained it had nothing to do with race. “She just wasn’t that pretty”, one person wrote.


For her part, the girl did not seem too affected by criticism, “To those who criticize me, I ask Allah the Almighty to bring them back to the right path. On the other hand, I thank those who encouraged me, “she explained to the private channel El-Djazairia One.


The winner highlighted that her participation in this competition was a pure coincidence, “I decided to participate at this contest at the last minute,” she underlined. “I want to volunteer for charity projects,” added the young lady.
