Miss World America Pageant Strips Miss Michigan of Title Because She is a Conservative


Miss World America stripped conservative Kathy Zhu of her Miss Michigan title over supposed “insensitive” political tweets and her refusal to wear a hijab during a leftist campus event in 2018.

Zhu, 20, is a proud Christian and conservative, but her mainstream beliefs are now being impugned by the left-wing operatives that control the Miss World America organization.

The now-former Miss Michigan recently posted some emails she received from MWA’s State Director Laurie DeJack.

In the emails, DeJack insisted there is “a problem” but repeatedly refused to make it clear what that problem was. But, after several back-and-forth emails, DeJack admitted that one of the “problems” was a tweet Zhu made where she said that the majority of blacks murdered in the U.S. are murdered by other blacks — a purely factual statement.

DeJack also demanded that Zhu send back her crown and sash and then go into her social media and erase all mentions of the pageant.

The Chinese-American Zhu has also been seen as a supporter of President Donald Trump.

The tweet about the black murder rate was not the only statement Zhu made with which DeJack had a “problem.”

Back in 2018, Zhu had refused to wear a hijab at an event at the University of Central Florida. Zhu claimed that a woman walked up to her during the event and tried to forcibly put a hijab over her head, but Zhu pulled away and refused.

Zhu also called the hijab a symbol of oppression.

According to Zhu:

“I was walking to class today, and I noticed this booth, and it was, I think, hosted by the Muslim Student Association,” Zhu recounted.

“The booth had a banner, and the banner said, ‘try on a hijab, and we’ll give you one for free,'” she elaborated. “So, I took the pictures. I posted it on Twitter, and I explained my concerns and my views about what’s wrong with this booth in general.”

“There’s a ‘try a hijab on’ booth at my college campus,” the tweet begins. “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?”

Zhu made a statement about the current situation saying, “I am completely disheartened by this situation. I was so excited to represent the state of Michigan and advocate for ‘don’t be afraid to speak your truth’ as my main statement. For them to take my title away due to right-leaning tweets shows that they only want pageant girls to have brainless statements like ‘world peace’ and not meaningful ideals that would actually make a difference.”
