Winner of the Miss Michigan World America, Kathy Zhu, was stripped of her title after refusing to wear a Hijab. Her refusal to be politically correct, drew the ire of the pageants organizers.
Kathy Zhu, says she was tossed from the Miss World America pageant “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, Islamophobic, and insensitive,” Zhu wrote on Twitter, posting the director’s email to her, along with her own response which calls out Sharia Law.
In one of the supposedly offensive tweets, Zhu, who campaigned with Chinese-Americans for Trump in 2016, mentioned a statistic about the black murder rate.
“Did you know the majority of black deaths are cause by other blacks?” Zhu wrote. “Fix first before blaming others.”
In a letter sent by, Zhu, she refused to back down to the organization’s political correctness and clarified what caused the “hijab” fiasco.
“Do you know what is ‘insensitive’?” she asked the pageants’ directors. “What’s ‘insensitive’ is that women in the middle east are getting stoned to death for refusing to obey they husband’s order to wear hijabs.”
“A Muslim woman tried to forcibly put a hijab on my head without my permission. I tweeted about it on my social media, and it got the attention of the media. Almost everyone was supportive of me refusing to be put in that situation.”
“Are the people of Miss World America implying that they advocate for the punishment of women who refuse to wear a hijab?” she wrote.
