Miss South Carolina embarrasses the state with trailer joke

Miss SC Brooke Mosteller

Many South Carolina residents were outraged after the state's representative in Sunday's Miss America pageant suggested that 20 percent of them live in a trailer.

The comment has caused quite a backlash and many people feel it wasn't the best representation of what the state has to offer.
