Miss Teen USA Will Not Represent MADD


The fallout over Miss USA’s confessed underage drinking has snared a fellow beauty contestant, Miss Teen USA.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving said it is cutting ties with Katie Blair because its “disappointed” by news reports that she had been spotted partying with Miss USA Tara Conner, who’s from nearby Russell Springs.

A MADD spokeswoman said the organization currently doesn’t feel Blair can “be an effective spokesperson on underage drinking.”

MADD “will not ask her to represent the organization in future initiatives.”

A Miss Universe Organization spokeswoman said Blair’s crown is safe and that the organization respected “MADD’s decision as much as it respects their work.”

Miss USA will also keep her crown.
