Megan Young faces disqualification from Miss World over topless photos

 
 
Many observers agree that the Philippines has a strong chance this year to finally bring home the elusive Miss World crown.

Young increased her chances of taking home the first ever Miss World title to the Philippines by being one of the 10 finalists in the Top Model Competition. This is a great addition to her Top 11 finish in the Beach Fashion contest two weeks ago. 
 
However, topless photos of Megan Young, an early favourite among pageant’s fans, that appeared in the March 2012 issue of Rogue Magazine have surfaced and drawn ire from the fans.
 
 
The International Business Times, a UK-based news agency where the headquarters of the Miss World Organization is also based, published on its website www.ibtimes.co.uk that Megan’s topless poses in the March 2012 issue of Rogue Magazine, a magazine circulated in the Philippines.
 
A user wrote to IBTimes UK on condition of anonymity:
 
“Rules are rules when it comes to the Miss World beauty contest it seems that contestants’ taking their clothes off is a clear breach of the laws. A beauty queen is somebody that is a good role model inside and out and obviously is a beautiful person. It's not just about exterior beauty; a beauty queen has to have outstanding morals, elegance, femininity and class. And that's what everybody thinks it is. Beauty queens should be seen as role models not sex object.”
 
The user asks:
 
“Will an Indonesian group of religious and feminist launch a protest on Megan Young's naked pictures? How will Miss World Organization and Indonesian government handle this issue?”
 
 
The Miss World Organization is readying to host all the 130 contestants on the Miss World 2013 Coronation Night. Miss Philippines remain listed on the pageant’s official website.
