Apparently, 25 years old is too old for the Miss Delaware title.
Amanda Longacre, 24, was stripped of her crown this week by pageant organizers, who said that her age violated a clause in the rules for the Miss America competition. The Miss America Organization says contestants must be 17 to 24 years old, and Longacre turns 25 in October, a month after the Miss America competition.
Not surprisingly, Longacre isn't taking the news too well.
Longacre appeared on the Today show Friday
, clearly emotional about being stripped of her title, which she won on June 14.
"It's like they're trying to erase me in a way, like it never happened. And it's not fair because I won outright, and I deserve to represent my state, and I want this chance to go to Miss America," she said.
Though things clearly got worse when she was reminded that she's already been replaced with the first runner-up, Brittany Lewis -- also 24 -- who was crowned Thursday.
Longacre then dissolved into tears.
