Pro-Trump Miss Michigan World America stripped of title over conservative views

Kathy Zhu, a University of Michigan student and reigning Miss Michigan World America has been stripped of her title over tweets the that the pageant deemed “offensive.” Zhu, when speaking with the Detroit Free Press, says it’s because she’s an outspoken conservative and support of President Trump.

The Miss World Pageant sent her a letter, telling her she was out because the content on her social media accounts was “offensive, insensitive and inappropriate.” Zhu shared the letter on her Twitter page.

“I have seen this happen before,” Zhu told the paper. “It is just not okay to be prejudiced against people who just have a different political view as you.”

Zhu also shared copies of text messages from the pageant state director who told her not to post anything on her social media page or go out representing Miss Michigan.


An outpouring of support from conservatives flooded her timeline after the story broke. Zhu also said she will not be seeking legal action against the pageant organization.
