The man who thinks the Internet existed since The Mahabharata can't understand why Diana Hayden won Miss Universe. The newly-elected Tripura CM, Biplab Kumar Deb, has already been crowned the nation's "new entertainer" owing to his science-defying comments. But while the Internet can't speak for itself, Diana Hayden can.

The former beauty queen has responded to the Tripura CM's comments on her looks, and has urged people in power to think before they speak.

"Whoever contested the international beauty pageants won. For five consecutive years, we won the Miss World/Miss Universe awards. Diana Hayden won it too. Do you think she should have won the title?" Deb said while speaking at a programme in Agartala. 

"Aishwarya Rai got it. That's justified because she carries the essence of the beauty of Indian women. Indian beauty is all about Goddess Laxmi, Goddess Saraswati... Diana Hayden does not fit that class of beauty," he added.

 And soon after, Tweeple came out all guns blazing to slam him for his remarks. 

Diana, who won the title of Miss World in 1994, hit back at the politician, too. "I am fighting this brown skin bias since my childhood. And I have succeeded. People should be proud of my achievement, rather than belittling it. I am a proud brown-skinned Indian. I am hurt. The minister is in a prominent position and he should be careful about what he says," the model told News18.
