Whistleblower Behind Miss America Controversy Says He Wishes He Spoke Up Sooner
Former Miss America pageant executive Brent Adams, who helped blow the whistle on profane and sexist emails sent by contest leaders, says he wishes he had come forward a long time ago. "I wish I had said something sooner," Adams told Inside Edition. Some of the leaked emails concerned 2013 Miss America Mallory Hagan. "OMG she is huge," wrote CEO Sam Haskell, who has since stepped down. A lead writer added, "Mallory's preparing for her new career as a blimp in the Macy's Thanksgiving parade."
