Zhu Loses Tittle Over Offensive Tweet

Kathy Zhu, a University of Michigan student and miss Michigan 2019 were dismantled off her tiara a few weeks ago for posting racist and Islamophobic tweets, she is now standing by everything she tweeted on social media, despite having deleted one of the posts in question.

She had her crown taken four days after it was placed on her head last week, reported CNN.
“They stripped me of my Miss Michigan title due to my refusal to try on hijab in 2018, my tweet about black on black gun violence and ‘insensitive’ statistical tweets,” the beauty queen said recently.

Despite remaining steadfast in defending the views she shares in her posts, one such share appears to have been deleted. But, a screengrab was issued of the February 2018 tweet posted during Miss Zhu was studying at the University of Central Florida.

“There is a “try a hijab on” booth at my college campus. 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?” the tweet reads.”

Talking to CNN, Zhu described the hijab “a sacred garment” and compared a non-Muslim wearing a hijab to a non-Catholic offering a rosary.

“There are so many women in Muslim countries right now who are being stoned to death because they don’t want to wear a hijab. and I think we should be focusing on that.

Zhu proceeded on her rhetoric. “There are so many evil things happening in Muslim countries, and their women are being crucified for not wearing a hijab and I think that’s really, really awful.”

She also posted a chain of text messages that she said she had exchanged with Laurie DeJack, state director for Miss World America Michigan. “Do not go out representing Michigan World America We do have a problem,”
Finally, Zhu said, her social posts are problematic. She is given a link to a post in which she wrote,
“Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others.”

Zhu tells she will arrive by DeJack’s house to drop off her crown and sash and accuses DeJack of making “false claims” rather than sticking up for the state pageant winner
