After receiving a string of critics, Miss Algeria 2019 Khadidja Benhammou came out of her silence to react to the mostly racist comments that were made after her coronation.
The young woman assured that she read some reviews on social networks about her skin color. “I say to all those people who came down after receiving the crown that they must know me before judging me,” she said.
And to add: “There is no difference between whites and blacks. I was crowned Miss Algeria only four days ago. Try to get to know me instead of criticizing me,”she defended herself.
Khadidja Benhammou is the first candidate from southern Algeria to win the Miss Algeria title. After his coronation, several Internet users expressed their disappointment because it “does not have clear skin and does not represent the Algerian beauty”.
The organization of Miss Algeria, for its part, reacted to these comments and deplored the racist attacks on the new beauty queen.
