Miss Seattle takes back her anti-Seattle comments

Clouds cover the sky while it rains as a sea plane approaches Lake Union for a landing in Seattle, Wash. Miss Seattle has come under fire for tweeting disparaging comments about her rainy city.

To Seattle, where there's a controversy going on involving the woman who just won the Miss Seattle pageant.

Apparently back in December, she tweeted: "Ugh, can't stand cold rainy Seattle and the annoying people."

Now she says she didn't mean it.

Though it might be tough to prove that, because another tweet said,  "Ew. I am seriously hating Seattle right now."

In fairness to her, she used to be Miss Phoenix -- where they have slightly different weather.
