Miss Puerto Rico Destiny Velez has been suspended after she posted anti-Muslim comments on Twitter. The Miss Puerto Rico Organization has announced that her suspension is indefinite.
The 20-year-old beauty pageant title holder responded to film maker Michael Moore’s tweet on the launch of his “We are all Muslim” campaign over the weekend. Though her Twitter page has since been taken down, CNN has revealed her original anti-Muslim messages.
So basically Miss Puerto Rico — Destiny Velez — got in a Twitter war with Michael Moore. And it cost her her title.
Moore launched a one-man protest effort outside Donald Trump’siconic property last week. “That bogeyman, in your mind, are all Muslims,” he said in an open letter to Trump. “Fortunately, Donald, you and your supporters no longer look like what America actually is today. We are not a country of angry white guys.”
She answered his tweet. With actual words.
There’s NO comparison between Jews, Christians and Muslims. Jews nor Christians have terrorizing agendas in their sacred books.”
“All what Muslims have done is provided oil and terrorize this country & many others! All they do is build their mosques, feel offended by American values and terrorize innocent Americans and plant gas stations.”
“Most terrorist attacks have had a religion & a name associated with them & they have been from Islam religion.”
“Many pull out the card of Muslims serving in our military. Are they in the military cuz [because] they love our nation or to acquire benefits.”
“Why do ppl [people] want to separate Muslims from Isis when ISIS is a group of Muslim fanatics.”
“All they do is build their mosques, feel offended by American values and terrorize innocent Americans and plant gas stations and get guns and kills innocent ppl [people] and destroy precious artifacts.”
“Muslims use our constitution to terrorize USA & plant gas stations.”
“Islamic god is NOT the same God as Christians & Jews”
Miss America Organization backed the suspension saying it “does not in any way condone or support the recent statements of Miss Puerto Rico.” The organization also said that it was actively working with the Miss Puerto Organization to resolve the issue.
