Will Miss America Be Dethroned for Speaking Out on Alleged Bullying?
Cara Mund, 24, appeared on "GMA" after her bombshell letter last week.
Is Miss America about to lose her crown following recent comments she has made about the leaders of the organization?
All Miss America contestants are required to sign a contract in which they agree not to disparage the organization and to get approval for all interviews.
Suzette Charles, who was Miss America 1984, told Inside Edition "anything is possible" when it comes to dethroning Mund.
"We have leadership that is pretty ruthless," she added. "I am very shocked that she would put herself in harm's way legally, but as she said the truth is more important."
Mund was speaking out for the first time since her bombshell letter last week, in which she claimed Miss America’s leadership “silenced,” “reduced,” “marginalized” and “essentially erased me in my role as Miss America ... on a daily basis."
Twenty-three previous Miss America winners have signed a petition calling for the ouster of Chairwoman Gretchen Carlson and the entire board.
Carlson has denied claims of bullying.
"I was surprised and saddened by the letter from our reigning Miss America," she tweeted earlier this month. "I have never bullied or silenced you. Actions have consequences.”
Carlson also said, "We've acknowledged your grievances and taken many steps to try to make your experience a good one."
With the Miss America pageant less than three weeks away, Mund claims the pageant is punishing her by reducing her farewell speech to a mere 30 seconds.
A spokesperson for Miss America Organization told Inside Edition they are not firing Mund.
