She also took some time to address the controversy surrounding Steve Harvey’s misreading of the envelope during the pageant finals which briefly awarded the crown to runner up Miss Colombia.
Wurtzbach wrote on Instgram; 'And to all the fans who are still fighting about this…Please let’s all stop now. The Miss Universe Organization is about uniting empowered women from all over the world.
‘Arguing and sending hateful messages to each other defeats the whole purpose. You believe in the message of Miss Universe and so do I.’
She also said of Miss Colombia; 'You are an amazing woman and we are now bonded together forever by a unique experience. In the last 3 weeks we were together, I saw how strong and beautiful you are inside and out.
‘You represented your country with honor and I know how proud everyone must be of you. Fate has a plan for you, and I’m excited to see what’s ahead.’
