T he 2019 Miss Michigan winner Kathy Zhu alleged Miss World America officials may discriminate "against people with conservative views" after she was stripped out of her title and sent a message of "offensive, insensitive and inappropriate" social media posts ,
On Thursday, Zhu said that she was dismissed as a pageant participant for violating the requirement of "being of good character." Officials thus indicated that they were "likely to bring into disrepute the organization. "
Zhu, a 20-year-old vocal supporter of President Trump, shared a screenshot of the letter she received on Twitter along with the news.
In 2018, Zhu visited a Muslim Student Association during World Hijab Day and refused to wear a hijab when she was offered the chance. "There is a try a hijab on 'booth at my college campus," she tweeted afterwards. "So you're telling me that's just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing?"
So they reportedly said, "Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks?"
Both tweets have since been deleted.
Someone called me for Islamophobic
Someone called me a racist because I know that black people kill more blacks than police do.
Good luck to those who are as gullible as this.

On Friday, they told Yahoo that the organization was at fault for "not vetting me properly before they signed me up for this."
"They're not letting people that represent another side of the story," she said. "They only want to say things that people want to hear. And there's a lot of things in this world that's hard to hear, but it's the truth. "
" It's not even about a crown or a pageant, "she added," it's about the fact that people really do discriminate against people with conservative views. "
