"Davuluri invited friends back to her hotel room after her win," a source told the paper. "A girl in the next room overheard their conversation, and was so offended she decided to tape part of it. A friend of Davuluri's was supposedly heard making racist remarks, and Davuluri is allegedly heard on the tape blasting Miss America, ‘Mallory's fat as [bleep].' The recording has been making the rounds of pageant contestants and officials."
The source adds that Davuluri's attacks "were brought to the board of the Miss America pageant."
Davuluri's also reportedly sent a Facebook message to Hagan denying the offensive comments, writing, "I want to apologize for the awful statements made by people in my room...There were people who claimed to be my supporters and said things I never agreed with, nor supported...I was never a part of the words or statements that may have been hurtful...I'm sorry if someone said something that was inappropriate."
A new Miss America will be crowned during this Sunday's annual pageant.
