Steve Harvey announced Miss Colombia as the winner of the 2015 Miss Universe pageant. But Miss Colombia was not the winner of the 2015 Miss Universe pageant. Miss Philippines was.
Host Steve Harvey says he made a mistake and didn't read the card correctly when he announced that the contestant from Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo, had won. She had already been crowned by the previous year's Miss Universe, also from Colombia, when Harvey returned to the stage to apologize.
The crown was removed from Aravelo's head and placed on the mystified Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, the contestant from the Philippines.

Bonus Steve Harvey: he misspelled the contestants' countries' names in his tweet of apology.
The cock-up is so monumental, and the carnage outside so bizarre, that there are already conspiracy theories.

Twitter rants and various online ugliness aside, social media has actually grown up a bit over the past 15 years.
