Miss America Nina Davuluri's Indian Heritage Leads To Racist Tweets
Nina Davuluri became the second Miss New York in so many years to be crowned Miss America, while also becoming the first winner of Indian heritage.
Davuluri’s crowning came with messages of support and pride, but also with some negativity on Twitter. Many of those who published racist and incendiary tweets have since deactivated their accounts, including a Twitter user JPLman95, who had tweeted, “Miss America? You mean Miss 7-11.” Luke Brasili had written, “9/11 was 4 days ago and she gets miss America.” And, Savannah Dale posted, “Miss New York is an Indian.. With all do respect, this is America.”
Only reason she won is bc her people said they would lower gas prices ⛽
