Miss Puerto Rico 2015 Destiny Velez, was suspended indefinitely by the Miss America Organization after she blasted out several anti-Muslim comments on Twitter.
Velez was enraged by liberal filmmaker Michael Moore‘s protests in front of Trump Tower in NYC last week, during which the Bowling for Columbine director held up signs that read: “We are all Muslim.” The beauty queen took to her Twitter page — which has since been deactivated — and spewed several incendiary thoughts.
“Muslims use our constitution to terrorize USA & plant gas stations,” the San Juan native, 20, tweeted in posts screen-capped by CNN. “All what Muslims have done is provided oil & terrorize this country & many others!!!!!! There’s NO comparison between Jews, Christians & Muslims. Jews nor Christians have terrorizing agendas in their sacred books.”
Miss USA 2011, the 60th anniversary of the Miss USA pageant, will be held at the Theatre for the Performing Arts in Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on June 19, 2011. Miss USA 2010, Rima Fakih of Michigan will crown her successor at the end of this event. Miss USA 2011 will represent the United States at the Miss Universe 2011 pageant in São Paulo, Brazil on September 12, 2011. For the first time ever, one of the fifteen semifinalists will be selected exclusively by fans via online voting and SMS messaging.
