Miss PNG loses crown after twerking video

According to theĀ GuardianĀ 25 year old Lucy Maino faced intense online harassment after she shared a video of herself twerking.

She was criticised for inappropriate behaviour and the website reports she has been dumped by the PNG pageant organisers.

The organisation said it aims to empower women, promote confidence, self-worth and integrity.

The Governor of East Sepik, Allan Bird, asked, "What kind of society condemns the torture and killing of women yet gets upset when a young woman does a dance video?"
