Miss Puerto Rico Destiny Velez has been suspended indefinitely from Miss America competition after she fired off a series of anti-Muslim tweets in response to the “We Are All Muslim” protests led by director Michael Moore.
The 20-year-old Velez directed her angry tweets at the film director — who created a buzz last week when he held up a sign reading “We Are All Muslim” outside of Trump Tower and shared an open letter online claiming that, unlike Trump, “we are not a country of angry white guys” . . .
Velez’s remarks prompted the Miss Puerto Rico Organization to issue a statement calling her comments a poor representation of “the integrity and esteem of our program.”
“Miss Velez’s actions were in contradiction to the organization, and therefore as a consequence of her actions, she has been suspended indefinitely,” the statement read. “The Miss Puerto Rico Organization will not tolerate any actions or behavior contrary to the Miss Puerto Rico Organization.” (Read more from “Miss Puerto Rico Suspended After Speaking out Against Muslims” HERE)
