Online name-calling, racially charged comments end cute baby contest
The cute baby contest at the Milan Community Fair will be no more after this year’s competition degenerated into online name-calling and racist remarks, the Milan News and WDIV reported.
Holly Anderson, the mother of two children who were named winners of the Prince and Princess Contest 2012 at the Milan Fair, told Channel 4 other parents criticized her children and left racist remarks on the fair's Facebook page after the contest results were announced. The comments have since been removed.
Also, at least one mother alleged that boxes that collected money “votes” for the contestants had been tampered with, the Milan News Leader reported. The allegation is being investigated.
