A beauty queen known for her pro-Trump conservative views was stripped of
her Miss Michigan title and dismissed from the Miss World America pageant
this week after the organization found her social media presence
offensive, insensitive and inappropriate.
Kathy Zhu, 20, and president of College Republicans at the University of
Michigan, tweeted screenshots of the email correspondence with the Miss
World America organization on Thursday.
"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," Zhu asserted Thursday.
After Zhu's story went public, she received a torrent of feedback, both
positive and negative.
"I woke up this morning with an overwhelming amount of support; I can't
thank you all enough," she wrote to her supporters Friday. I am glad this

In 2017, Zhu tweeted that African Americans needed to fix problems within
their own community because the majority of black deaths are caused by
other blacks. She defended the tweet on Twitter Friday, claiming
statistics backed her statement and that she is not a racist.
When the left calls you racist for using statistics to back up your
claim, you know youre on the right side of history, Zhu wrote.
In her response to the dismissal email from Miss World America, Zhu said a
Muslim woman tried to forcibly put a hijab on her head on her college
campus in 2018.
Zhu said she refused to wear the garment in support of women in the Middle
East who are getting stoned to death for refusing to obey their
husbands' orders to wear hijabs. She also asked Miss World America
officials if they would have dismissed her if she refused to wear Catholic
rosary beads instead of the Muslim hijab.
Zhu said Friday that she would not be taking any legal action against Miss
World America officials because they have suffered enough negative
publicity - especially because they wanted to decrown me due to not
wanting bad publicity in the first place.
