Is size 4 the "new normal"?

The beauty queen who set social media on fire after flaunting some serious curves at the Miss USA Pageant is speaking out.

Miss Indiana Mekayla Diehl is 5'8" and wears a size four.

Twitter and Facebook were flooded with comments following her turn on stage in the swimsuit competition.

"Today's woman is healthy and that's what I represent, I guess and I'm OK with it and I'm happy that girls are looking to me and thanking me for being average I suppose," said Diehl.

By the way, according to the Centers for Disease Control, the average American woman is 5'3" and wears a size 12 to 14.
