Miss USA 2023 Noelia Voigt Resigns, Claims Toxic Work Environment Including ‘Bullying and Harassment’

Noelia Vogt, last year’s Miss USA pageant winner, resigned from her position this week, claiming she suffered “bullying and harassment” during her tenure.

In her resignation letter, which was obtained by multiple news outlets, Noelia Vogt singled out Layla Rose, the president and CEO of Miss USA and Miss Teen USA, and said Rose was “the antithesis of fear and control.” “We are actively building a culture of The push for women’s empowerment is creating a toxic workplace that is dangerous for future title holders and employees. ”

Her sudden resignation was followed by another resignation announced this week. 2023 Miss Teen USA winner Umasofia Srivastava said on social media that her “personal values ​​are no longer fully aligned with the direction of the organization.”

Their resignations shocked the beauty pageant world and cast doubt on the future of Miss USA and Miss Teen USA, which have been in existence since 1952.

Noelia Vogt, 24, wrote in the letter that she was “made to feel unsafe” at events she attended during her reign, which led to her being “sexually harassed at the 2023 Sarasota Christmas Parade.”

She also claimed Ms Rose was “generally unable to communicate”, did not offer support and “slandered” her.

As a result, Vogt wrote, her mental health suffered significantly.

“It is important to make this abundantly clear: The toll this treatment, experience, and abuse has taken on me will have long-lasting effects on my health,” she wrote. “Unfortunately, this won’t magically go away. I know the harsh reality of it, and I won’t continue to feel like a victim any longer.”
