Miss Seattle apologizes for tweets that called Pacific Northwest city cold and people annoying
SEATTLE (AP) ' The newly crowned Miss Seattle says she was just having a bad day back in December when she tweeted, "Ugh can't stand cold rainy Seattle and the annoying people."
Since winning the pageant on Saturday, Jean-Sun Hannah Ahn has said she was just complaining about the weather like any Seattle native and didn't mean that people in Seattle are annoying.
A former Miss Phoenix who graduated from Arizona State University, Ahn told KIRO-FM (http://is.gd/lCqjOm ) she was in a transition period three months ago, missing friends and sunshine.
She says she learned a valuable lesson. On Twitter Monday she said, "I really do love Seattle ... the summers are to die for."
Miss Seattle represents the city this summer at the Miss Washington Pageant.
