SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Beauty queen Miss Singapore World has given up her crown after it emerged that she had stolen credit cards to go on a shopping spree for lingerie. Ris Low had come under public pressure to be stripped of her 2009 title, after local media reported she stole seven credit cards last year while working at a medical clinic, buying goods worth about S$8,000 ($5,662) including gold anklets and phones.

Organizers of the pageant ERM World Marketing said she had resigned Tuesday of her own accord. She will no longer represent Singapore at the Miss World finals to be held in South Africa in December, but her replacement has not yet been decided.

Low had also been criticized for her poor English, mispronouncing "bikini" in a recent video, leading others in multicultural Singapore to spring to her defense and soul-searching on websites about the national character.

And she has to resign as Ms Singapore because why? I thought this kind of behavior was a requirement to be Ms Singapore.

They’re just judging her looks. Used to bug me too and I’m a guy.

She is definitely cute

Not really attractive. I wouldn’t give her a second look and the first would be very brief.

She should also be stripped of her stolen lingerie. Televise it. Only way to teach her a lesson.

If she'd used the money to pay for her wedding with another woman, it would all have been okay here in the States.

I love Asian/Eurasian females, but for some reason, that particular pic isn’t doing it for me.

Correct. Average. There are some genuine eye-popping world class over-the-top drop everything gifts from God roaming the world. Ms Sinagpore/World 08 is nice.
