Following the leak of the scathing internal emails by the Huffington Post on Thursday, Hagan, 28, said in a video posted to Twitter Friday morning that she hopes the story "will bring light to the type of behavior that's been in leadership of the Miss America Organization" and "really help us put in place people who care and embody the mission of Miss America", the pageant which aims to empower women and provides scholarships.
"Due to the egregious and unacceptable comments made by the CEO of Miss America I have asked the CRDA to terminate its contract", Gilliam said in a statement on his Facebook page. Colin Bell of Atlantic County also called on the CRDA to end its relationship with the Miss America Organization.
Among those pressuring Haskell to resign are 49 former Miss Americas, who issued a joint statement; the mayor of Atlantic City; and former MAO CEO Leonard Horn.
Hagan said she was told not to interact with former Miss America Kate Shindle, who had said some critical things about the pageant. The statement did not say if he had apologized to the women mentioned by name in the emails, or whether such an apology was conveyed to them.
Chris Howard, the CRDA's executive director, said the report about the emails and the behavior of the pageant's leadership were "troubling".
Sam Haskell did not specify what he claims is untruthful in the story, published Thursday, that detailed email correspondence in which he and others ridiculed former title holders, including remarks about their appearance, intellect and sex lives.
"As a proud former Miss America and former member of the Board of the Miss America Organization, I am shocked and deeply saddened by the disgusting statements about women attributed to the leadership of the MAO". Others included speculation about how many men one particular former Miss America had had sex with. "Please change all script copy to reflect that they are Former Miss Americas!" "I read that that same board passed around photos to email each other degrading comments about Miss America's body".
As a result of that investigation, Lewis Friedman, the lead writer of the Miss America pageant telecast, had been let go from the organization.
According to the Associated Press, Dick Clark Productions was made aware of the emails several months ago.
"I knew (Thurlow) would be appalled by it, as I was".
"I hope that with new leadership and new management, those who now believe in the Miss America program - Dick Clark, ABC networks, Atlantic City, every sponsor that's listed there - I hope that they will continue to want to support a relevant and new Miss America that they can be proud to have their name on", Hopper said.
