— -- Miss Oklahoma, Olivia Jordan, took home the Miss USA crown Sunday night, beating out 50 other women.

The 26-year-old bested Miss Texas, Ylianna Guerra, who was first runner-up, and Miss Rhode Island, Anea Garcia, who came in third.

"This organization is not one person. It's definitely not just me. It's a family," Jordan told The Associated Press after her win. "This organization celebrates diversity, and I think that was clear on the stage tonight, and I look forward to spreading a message of love and diversity and acceptance."

Jordan's comments came after weeks of controversy surrounding the pageant's co-owner, Donald Trump, who has been criticized for comments about Mexican immigrants made when he announced he was running for president. NBC dropped the pageant, and several celebrities who were supposed to be involved dropped out.

"We have freedom of speech in this country, and immigration is certainly an important issue," Jordan told the AP, when asked about Trump.
