When it comes to being a beauty queen, contestants are expected to accept challenges with grace and poise.

However, one runner-up in a pageant in Brazil did not quite know how to handle defeat.

Carolina Toledo was just crowned Miss Amazonas 2015, but her moment in the spotlight was cut short.

The runner-up, Sheislane Hayalla, ripped the crown from her head and yelled a few insults before storming off stage.

According to the Independent, Hayalla claims Toledo “bought” her victory and “didn’t deserve the title.”
