"No matter what publicity you get, someone's gonna have something negative to say," Fakih explained "Extra," claiming she thought they were creative. "I've got a few comments going 'why?' and I say... 'why not?'"

Miss Universe producer Donald Trump also weighed in. "We're in a very different age, frankly," adding, "the girls all did what they were comfortable with."
