The email had pictures of Hagan and three other former Miss Americas. "Much of what was reported is dishonest, deceptive, and despicable".

In a statement, the organisation said it would be conducting "an in-depth investigation into alleged inappropriate communications [by Mr Haskell]".

"We stand firmly against harassment, bullying and shaming - especially of women - through the use of derogatory terms meant to belittle and demean", the Huffington Post quoted the letter as saying.

Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan, who turned 29 Saturday, was a subject of some of the worst of the emails between Haskell and other members of the organization.

"Those who know my heart know that this is not indicative of my character, nor is it indicative of my business acumen", Haskell said.
