Miss Michigan Stripped Of Title For Posting Conservative Opinions

Beauty queen Kathy Zhu was stripped of her title and crown after somebody found her social media posts offensive.

Ann Arbor, MI - A pageant winner who openly supported President Donald Trump said she was stripped of her title just days after she won the crown because of anti-conservative bias.

Kathy Zhu was named the Indiana and Michigan 2019 national finalist in the Miss and Teen World America (MWA) Preliminary and Finals, according to Newsweek.

On Thursday, she was notified via email by the organizers of the pageant that she had been disqualified and had her title revoked due to some of her old social media posts that someone found offensive.

“Miss World America’s State/National/Chief Director accused me of being racist, Islamaphobic, and insensitive,” the 20-year-old Zhu, who is Chinese, wrote on Facebook. “They stripped me of my Miss Michigan title due to my refusal to try on a hijab in 2018, my tweet about black on black gun violence, and ‘insensitive’ statistical tweets.”

In February of 2018, Zhu found herself in the crosshairs of social justice warriors on her college campus after she refused to try on a hijab and then posted about it Twitter.

Zhu said she was changing classes at University of Central Florida when she encountered a “try a hijab” booth and declined the offer, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

"So you're telling me that it's now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing?" she tweeted afterwards, and included pictures of the booth. "Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?"

The pageant organizers were also offended by a post she made about black-on-black crime.

"Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others,” Zhu posted, according to Newsweek.

The organizers took umbrage at the tweets and used them as grounds to take Zhu’s beauty pageant title away from the winner less than a week after she was granted her crown.

"It has been brought to the attention of Miss World America that your social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content, and in violation of MWA's Rules and Conditions, specifically the contestant requirement of 'being of good character and whose background is not likely to bring into disrepute Miss World America or any person associated with the organization,’” MWA State Director Laurie DeJack wrote to Zhu.

"Therefore, and effective immediately, MWA does not recognize you as a participant of any sort or in any capacity as it relates to any and all events of MWA," DeJack wrote, summarily firing the new beauty queen.

"Furthermore, let this communication serve as official notice to remove any mention of yourself as a participant in MWA from all social media platforms (including photographs of you wearing the MWA Michigan sash and/or crown, and any text claiming to be a participant of MWA events)," she ordered the decrowned college student.

Zhu complied with the organizations directive to remove the pictures but she also decided to take her case public, Newsweek reported.

She said on her Facebook page that she felt vindicated after she shared what had been done to her.

“I woke up this morning with an overwhelming amount of support; I can’t thank you all enough,” Zhu wrote. “I’m glad this story came to light because this is more than just some beauty pageant, this is about the prejudice views against people with ‘different opinions.’”

Zhu said doesn’t plan to take legal action against the organization.

“I think they have suffered enough negative publicity – especially because they wanted to decrown me due to not wanting bad publicity in the first place,” she explained. “

“When they go low, we go high,” she said, making fun of a famous quote from Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

It used to be nude photos that stripped a beauty queen of her title. The officials have now become snowflakes and anything can be called offensive. I guess they would prefer their pageant contestants to have been born and raised alone on desert islands with the approved books to learn from for education - no phones, no computers.

It’s time for everyone to find everything offensive previously stated by any of the participants in that event. As the runners up step up, we take them down one by one until each of the participants is stripped of their crown and removed of their title. Then the organizers can crawl away in shame knowing they’ll never see another sponsor or contributor to their snowflake event.

I feel slightly bad that that happened to Ms Zhu, but lets face it. She is, or was, a beauty Queen. No one wants to hear intelligent things come out of your mouth, dear. Her job is to look pretty, smile for the camera and say scripted lines about how you would "change the world for the better" and that's about it. Your job isn't to wax politic on social media. Silly little girl, STFU and do your job, honey. Another note, your Chinese American. Aren't we deep in a trade war with China? Aren't we not engaged in hostilities with China and curtailing Chinese ambitions and aggression and advancement in the world? Maybe she should leave America and go back to her country instead of causing trouble in mine.

I quickly opened this story when I saw the headline "Miss Michigan Stripped" and that's where I stopped reading. So after getting over my disappointment I finally read the story and came to the conclusion that the overly sensitive leftists only advocate free speech when they are in agreement with what you have to say.

Seems like the far left considers any conservative opinion as automatically a racist opinion. The word is so over-used it has lost it's meaning.

Excuse me?? She didn't say anything wrong!! If she didn't want to try on a hijab, that's her choice!! And statistically speaking, the majority of blacks ARE killed by other blacks. She was stating a fact. So what's the problem??? Oh I see, the Leftist SJW Liberal Snowflakes got their itty bitty feelings hurt and their panties in a wad because she supports Trump and they needed a reason to knock her out of the competition. Because God forbid they have a beautiful and INTELLIGENT woman in the competition against the other airheads!!! This s**t is getting ridiculous!!! Can we please go ahead and give these idiots the West coast and make it it's own country and let them do whatever just as long as they stay put!! Then the rest of us could live in peace!!

Marxest... What a name. Seems to fit you well. What other titles do you hold? Sexist? Racist?

Well hey, if 13 officers can get fired for it, what’s a Miss World America crown? These officers had families and careers. She will still be able to get a job and move forward in her life. She will get over it I’m sure. And in her defense, play on what the other contestants said and be super extra hypersensitive about that. Or say some shit like “you did it because I’m Asian!” It works for black people right?........ Well, maybe not, Second thought, just say I’m sorry..... hahaha. Good on you for speaking the truth. Some people just can’t handle the truth. Keep on keeping on!
