(NewsReady.com) – Lucy Sophia Thomson won the Miss Scotland competition in July 2022. Nearly a year later, she is facing the possibility of losing her crown. She’s also in trouble with law enforcement after an alleged incident at a rugby match.
On June 17, Thomson was reportedly at an Edinburgh City 7s event when security escorted her off of the site of the match at the Peffermill Playing Fields. A video of the event shared online showed the moment she was allegedly ejected.
The Daily Record reported the videographer claimed that he recognized the 24-year-old Miss Scotland after seeing her at a school that day. Another person at the event alleged the woman screamed, “Do you know who I am? I’m Miss Scotland,” as security guards forced her to leave.
Thomson was also accused of assaulting and racially abusing someone. According to reports, she allegedly bit a man and called him the N-word. The Daily Mail reported a friend of the person who she allegedly attacked said she “violently racially and physically attacked [the man] in public [at the event] while he was at work.”

A Police Scotland spokesperson acknowledged something reportedly happened but didn’t mention any names. They told the press that law enforcement “received a report of a disturbance and a hate crime,” and the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
People are now calling for Miss Scotland to lose her title over the allegations. On June 18, the organizers of the beauty competition announced on Facebook that they were now accepting 2023 entries for the pageant. To qualify, women must be “attractive [and] compassionate.”
The comment section under the announcement called on organizers to make a statement about the incident that took place involving their current ambassador. Others said Thomson should have her title stripped because “lovely girls don’t bite black people and call them the n word.”
