Aside from the controversial blunder of announcing the competition’s winner, Perez Hilton took the opportunity to express his always direct opinion. Hilton, who was one of the judges of this year’s pageant, was asked what he thought about this year’s event, Latin Times reports.

The 37-year-old social media star began by explaining that many more people would be watching this year. He continues, “Thankfully, Donald Trump no longer owns this pageant.” Hilton’s remark was followed by an uproar of cheers and social media responses in support.

In June, NBC dropped Trump as owner of the pageant, after his offensive, derogatory remarks came about Mexicans.
