Via The Hill:
Miss Michigan 2019 winner Kathy Zhu was stripped of her title on Thursday for “offensive, insensitive and inappropriate” social media posts, she said Thursday.
Zhu, 20, tweeted Thursday what appeared to be a screenshot of an email she received from Miss World America officials, who told her she was dismissed from being a pageant participant.
“Miss World America’s State/National/Chief Director accused me of being racist, Islamaphobic, and insensitive,” Zhu tweeted. “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.”
The first racist incident happened in 2018, in which Zhu went up to a Muslim Student Association booth celebrating World Hijab Day.
She then tweeted:
“There is a ‘try a hijab on’ booth at my college campus.
So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?
The second occurrence is a reply to another Twitter user in which Zhu says:
“Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community before blaming others.”
I wonder if it would it be insensitive to tell her if she doesn’t like it she can go back where she came from ?
