Miss America pageant says #byebyebikini, Twitter reacts

New York: The Miss America Organisation has decided it will no longer judge contestants by their looks. As a result of the latest development, the contestants will no longer be strutting down the stage wearing swimsuits.

Twitterverse, however, was divided in their opinion. While some seemed genuinely impressed with the move, hailing the transformation as a revolution, others, not that much.

#byebyebikini. The @missamerica competition will no longer have a Swimsuit portion! ???? It’s a bold move for the @MissAmericaOrg to cut???? after nearly 100 years, but I’m excited to see a new era of #MissAmerica with emphasis on scholarship, talent, and the inner beauty of women.

Kali Brooke Whitaker, however, felt that instead of changing the swimsuit round, one should change people's mentality.

#byebyebikini is sending the wrong message - the swimsuit competition does not need to change, but how we teach young men to treat women does

For the peeps out there commenting that only physically unattractive or unhealthy people are happy about #byebyebikini, I call BS. No one should be paraded around in bikinis in a national competition that wants to be taken seriously. For people who like doing that, there are…
