Colombians Start New Year Burning Steve Harvey and Miss Universe Effigy (VIDEO)
Colombians started the new year by burning Steve Harvey and Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach effigies for the annual año viejo (old year).
The burning of effigies is a New Year’s Eve tradition in Latin America believed to ward off bad luck in the coming year. The burning occurs at midnight.
This makes me very sad. Miss Universe is an event commodifying women. Unfortunately, people are just blinded by their competitiveness (and whatever other reason they would think of for burning Steve Harvey) and fail to see the bigger picture.
Honestly, Steve Harvey’s mistake during Miss Universe is the greatest thing that has ever happened to that pageant ever. EVER.
Press play to watch the video below.
