Melissa King, who was crowned Miss Delaware Teen USA in November, has resigned her crown amid allegations she appeared in a pornographic video.
King said in an interview she knew of the video, but was not the girl in it.
A still from the video in question, in which a woman bearing a striking resemblance to King performs explicit sex acts.
Interestingly, on Thursday, YouPorn's Braden Burns reached out to the pageant queen and asked her to be "Miss YouPorn."
A transcript of YouPorn's offer:
