After Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, was crowned the 2014 Miss America pageant winner, the twitterverse, along with a lot of America, raged at the fact that a “terrorist” won the pageant.
I understand what the Miss America pageant means to many women, and men, and Americans in general. It’s a longstanding tradition that overall is for a good cause, because these women do amazing and charitable things. That being said, in my opinion, pageants are dumb. The idea of women parading around, being judged by men on how good of a woman they are so that they can win the coveted title of Miss America makes me rage.
Either way this is obviously something that meant a great deal to Davuluri who made it through a bajillion rounds of judgement to finally become Miss America. Too bad too many Americans are ignorant enough to call her a terrorist.
Buzzfeed pulled together the best of the worst tweets aimed at the newest Miss America. Take a look. You’ll be just as shocked as I was to learn that Davuluri is Arabian. Hint: she’s Indian, and the first woman of Indian descent to win the pageant. So congrats Nina, you’re doing awesome things, despite what the internet thinks.
