As Miss Indiana Mekayla Diehl strutted her stuff wearing a bikini and a big smile during the swimsuit portion of Sunday’s Miss USA show Sunday night, Twitter responded with a flurry of flattery.
I really wanted Miss Indiana to make it to the top 10. She was the only girl up there who had a relatively normal body. #MissUSA2014— Abby Snyder (@NotTooShabby12) June 9, 2014
Miss Indiana shows you don't have to be super skinny to be beautiful.— kennaaa (@Hi_ItsKenna) June 9, 2014
Or for being a “bag of bones”
And for not being a “twig.”
The fact that Miss Indiana is not a complete twig makes me really happy!— Kadee McKoin (@k_mck12) June 9, 2014
There was one person who put it a less flattering way:
Y'all I love miss Indiana!!! She is a thicker pageant girl!!!! ��— Southern Sweetheart (@_sweetsouth_) June 9, 2014
And this seemed to be a compliment, but was it really?
People seemed to relate to her:
#MissIndiana looked beautiful and the most real girl out there ��— brooke conrady (@brookeeconrady) June 9, 2014
Unfortunately for her, she didn’t make it to the Top 10. But viewers were rooting for her.
