Bianca Schoombee Withdraws From Miss SA 2020 After Old Offensive Tweets Resurface

Schoombee began trending on Twitter as a favourite potential finalist among the public after posting photos of herself as part of her Miss SA entry.

The love quickly turned into disappointment and outrage, on Tuesday night when users shared tweets she posted in 2013/14 where she made offensive and racist remarks and used the N-word several times.

Schoombee apologised for the tweets, stating that they were shared when she was still a teenager and that she had since changed. However, people on social media just weren’t buying it.

Her Modeling agency Sync Models said that it and Bianca Schoombee had decided that her pulling out of the contest was best for all involved. It also came to her defence, saying that she has grown as a woman and had changed her ways.

The Miss South Africa company stated on its website that any semifinalist or finalist may not have been involved in any unsavoury or unethical incidents or conduct that may bring the organisers or the Miss South Africa pageant into disrepute.
