Megan Young hosted Miss World for the third consecutive time Sunday. A former Miss World winner herself, Megan wore a revealing dress that showed her cleavage during the start of the event. It was a stunning look for the former Miss World 2013 but, it seems, not everybody was impressed.

This prompted protests on social media sites and accused the Thailand TV network of hypocrisy, with many pointing to the country’s notorious sex industry.

“If you guys have ever been to Thailand what Megan Young wearing is nothing compared to the Thai women are wearing in street at night. Hypocrisy at its finest!” reads one comment.

“Yeah right! Then they gladly allow tourist to sleep with children,” said another.

“What a load of rubbish that is. In Thailand they sell young children for sex and nothing is done about it,” another reader chimed in.

But, according to The Daily Mail, Thailand may be famous for its sex tourism but when it comes to television, it has long been known for being strict.
