Angry Russians have taken to Twitter to claim the Miss Moscow contest was fixed because the teenage ballerina who won should never have been given the crown.
Blonde Irina Alexeyeva, 18, beat other contestants to grab top slot in the Russian capital’s event for 2014. But within minutes of her being named outraged fans soon took to social media to express their disbelief, slating the teen for being too ugly.
And shortly after that, large numbers of photo shop modifications started to circulate on social media sites including Twitter mocking the decision.
One dumbfounded user said: "The newly crowned Miss Moscow makes me want to leave planet Earth altogether."
Another said: "The time has come in which almost every man has a girlfriend who's hotter than Miss Moscow."
The debate verged on turning political with angry fan Mikhall Golub posting a photo of Ukraine’s Miss Kiev alongside the 18-year-old the people to compare.
And the unlucky winner was even compared to Russian striker Aleksander Kokorin with Manchester United fan Miss_United_Di saying: "Alexander Kokorin and Miss Moscow 2014... Like twins ffs."
A spokesman for the competition saying that looks were not the only criteria for selection, and adding: "She was chosen for her ballet dancing ability and her choice of clothes."
