Miss Nevada, Katie Rees is issuing a correction on the statement released by her attorney yesterday regarding some photos that were published of her on the internet. That press release stated that she was 17 years old when the photos were taken. Miss Rees’ actual age when the aforementioned photos were taken was 19. Miss Rees acknowledges her misbehavior as captured in the photos. The pictures were taken years before her consideration to compete for the title of Miss Nevada.
Katie says, “Over the past couple of days I have seen and heard numerous reports and I feel it is necessary to address the public with the facts. Simply put, these images were from an isolated incident during my teenage years prior to my consideration to compete for Miss Nevada. While I take full responsibility for the photographs, I want everyone to know the truth. This was by no means representative of who I was, who I am, or who I will become.
I have no intentions to disgrace the state of Nevada, the Miss Universe Organization or Mr. Donald Trump. Nonetheless, I feel I have been unfairly treated and I am being judged without due process.
I challenge those individuals to look back on their pasts and not find something they did to humiliate themselves or that they deeply regret—especially during their teenage years. I am very embarrassed by the situation. Regardless, such a brief and distant lapse in judgment does not warrant my loss of the title I worked so hard to achieve.” We’re with you Katie and we thank you for your little indiscretion! We just loved that lesbian action!
