Responding to Latino Rebels for comment, Perez stated: "Whenever we are questioned, we ask for them to bring that stuff in,” she said. Perez denies the claims that the questioning was racially motivated. 

"Color has nothing to do with it," she said. She also cited other contestants who were both black and Hispanic and who had been crowned. 

The organization crowned someone else, and McKoy was given "runner-up" despite not providing documentation.
