    Pro-Trump Miss Michigan who refused to try on hijab stripped of title

    July 19, 2019 25850





    A Donald Trump-supporting beauty queen has been stripped of her title after being accused of posting “offensive” statistics on social media. Online conservatives have since rallied around her and accused the Miss Indiana and Michigan World America of anti-conservative bias.

    Kathy Zhu, 20, is a University of Michigan student who earlier this week was named as an Indiana and Michigan 2019 national finalist in her bid to make it to the Miss and Teen World America Preliminary and Finals, which will be held in Las Vegas in October.

    Zhu—who was born in China and moved to the U.S. aged 5—posted her conversations with the organization on Twitter, sparking fury among online conservatives.
    Zhu said on Twitter she had been stripped of her title “due to my refusal to try on a hijab in 2018, my tweet about black on black gun violence, and ‘insensitive’ statistical tweets.”
    Miss World America's State/National/Chief Director accused me of being racist, Islamaphobic, and insensitive.

    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.

    According to News Week, Zhu, who has more than 70,000 followers on Twitter and Instagram combined under the handle “PoliticalKathy,” first gained online fame for her Trump support during the 2016 presidential election.
    Prominent conservative commentator Kathy Zhu, known as Political Kathy on Twitter, posted a screenshot of an email by state director of the Miss World America beauty pageant for Michigan, Laurie DeJack, notifying her that she must dissociate herself from the contest due to “offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content” found on her social media, RT news reported.
    DeJack said that the MWA no longer recognizes her as a “participant of any sort or in any capacity” and demanded she removes all the mentions of her taking part in the pageant.

    Zhu also posted screenshots of her lengthy text-message exchange with DeJack, in which she informs Zhu that there has been a “huge issue” with her, without providing any details. As Zhu pressed DeJack for more information, the director cited a 2016 tweet by Zhu, reading: “Did you know that the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within you own community before blaming others.”
    DeJack did not explicitly accuse Zhu of racism, but the Chinese-American student said that she would “stop by” her house and “give back the crown/sash” that she was awarded as the winner of the local Miss Michigan pageant, before lashing at DeJack for implying that the “statistics” she cited were somehow racially biased.
    This is ridiculous and to work with someone that thinks statistics is racist is the last thing I want to do.
    “I’m completely hurt over this but I hope you find a better candidate that will advocate for brainless ideals like ‘world peace,’” Zhu added.

    While there is no mention of a “hijab scandal” in the screenshot Zhu provided, the conservative commentator claimed that it was one of the reasons she got her crown taken from her.
    Zhu, then a student of the University of Central Florida, made headlines in February last year after she refused to participate in a
    “Try a Hijab”campus event to mark World Hijab Day.At the time, Zhu took heat on Twitter for her unwillingness to try on the conservative Muslim garment, which she called a “scarf of oppression.”

    How about the Muslims parade around on Bikini Day?

    How would they like to be forced to do that?

    We will put on their scarf in exchange for them putting on the Bikini.
