NEW YORK: Miss Puerto Rico 2015 has been indefinitely suspended from her role by the Miss America organization for launching a tirade against Muslims on Twitter.

Destiny Velez, 20, fired off a series of tweets at prominent left-wing political activist and filmmaker Michael Moore on Thursday in which she attacked the religion, according to US media reports.

Moore had posted a picture of himself outside Trump Tower in New York City with a sign reading, "We are all Muslim."

His image was in response to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the US, which prompted the "We Are All Muslim" Twitter hashtag.

Velez tweeted directly at Moore multiple times, claiming Muslims had "terrorizing agendas," Latin Times reported.

Her tweets and Twitter account have since been deleted. The phrases she used can still be seen on the Latin Times site, however.
