The Daily Mail reported:
Miss Puerto Rico Destiny Velez has been indefinitely suspended by the official Miss America Organization after sending a series of offensive anti-Muslim messages on Twitter.
Velez, 20, launched an anti-Muslim tirade at filmmaker Michael Moore on Thursday after he shared a photo of himself outside of Trump Tower in New York City with a sign reading: ‘We are all Muslim.’
Moore’s photo was in response to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the US, which inspired the hashtag #WeAreAllMuslim on social media.
The former beauty queen sent a number of tweets directed to Moore including one that said Muslims have ‘terrorizing agendas,’ according to a grab of the tweets obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
She looks like a lovely young woman.
