Whoa, an immigrant asian white spremacist
A Michigan pageant contestant and fan of President Donald Trump was stripped of her title for what she calls discrimination against her conservative political views.
Kathy Zhu, a University of Michigan student, was dismissed Thursday as a Miss World America pageant participant when the organization described the content of her social media as “offensive, insensitive and inappropriate.” according to a letter from the pageant that she posted on her Twitter account.
“I have seen this happen before,” Zhu told the Free Press on Thursday. "It is just not okay to be prejudiced against people who just have a different political view as you.”
Miss World America did not respond with comments despite repeated attempts to contact her.
Despite the apparent support from her peers, the tweets Zhu claims caused Miss World America to dissociate with her have caused backlash on social media.
But Zhu still defends the two now-deleted tweets that she blames for her firing.
The first is an incident that dates to 2018, in which Zhu went up to a Muslim Student Association booth celebrating World Hijab Day and declined to wear a hijab when prompted. 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?”
“I said that it was (getting women used to) being oppressed because there are so many women in Middle Eastern countries that are being punished and stoned for refusing to wear a hijab,” said Zhu. “Nobody is talking about that in the West because all they see is everyone being at peace, but that is the beauty of America.”
The second is a reply to another 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.”
“This applies for every community,” Zhu said. “If there is a problem, fix things in your own community before lashing out at others and trying to find an issue there. That is all I wanted to say. It is not a problem against black people. Obviously I am not racist or stuff like that.”
Zhu said that Miss World America should be more specific and clearly define what “insensitive” means, as she does not believe anything she posted was insensitive.
