Model Nadia Mejia turned to God for help with a question she’d just been asked on stage during the Miss USA pageant last Sunday: How would she address the gap between rich and poor?
The answer might have made sense in her head, but something got lost on the way to her mouth.
“When it comes to social and economic inequality, I think that the rich and the poor need to stop being so segregated. I think there is a middle class.”
God still absent, she tried again.
“I think that the rich need to be able to be giving, and I think the poor need to work hard, and I think the middle class need to come together and find an in-between.”
She later posted on social media that God had responded, and that his words had been “It’ll take longer than 30 seconds to answer that, babe.”
At least Mejia can thank the heavens that she wasn’t the pageant contestant with the ditziest reply ever. That crown still belongs to Miss Teen South Carolina.
