Its distasteful if youre serious about it, sure. Altho I did laugh at that first tweet "9/11 was four days ago and we give HER miss america??" Not because Im actually angry about it, but its just funny to think others might be. I dont know if the person was serious or not but either way the indignity indicated was good for some lulz.

Also, if a white person won Miss India, then you'd see a real backlash. This is nothing. Or if a white person was given the NAACP person of the year award. Thatd be criticized openly by EVERYONE, prob even by the PotUS himself.


But its whatever. We all know the official rules by now: "Bigotry is wrong. If the bigot is white."


Also agree with ALBaller. Nothing on twitter should ever be reported as news by serious journalists. Leave that for TMZ, and wannabe-TMZ sites like ESPN.com

This is not even something to get mad over, I just started to laugh because these bogus comments are so full of freaking ignorance.

Making a connection between an Indian-American to extremist Muslims.. Really?

Add it to yet another episode of ignorance shown by (American) social media users.

Remember the Japanese tsunami? :smh .. This incident was probably the worst.

Remember the Boston bombers and a plethora of Americans blamed the Czech Republic? LOLmerica.

i agree that the people posting racial comments are idiots but I hope she didn't win it just to prove a point. Also iffy on wearing Indian garb doing an Indian dance routine in a Miss America pageant

Yeah, that happened in Florida a couple years back.

I remember one of my co-workers told me once that one day people will look like me..because it's hard to tell what I am due to mixing through the generations. Lots of mixture in the Caribbean Basin. Lots of ignorance out there. But what do you expect. This country is failing in so many ways lately.

i completely disagree.

winning it as an indian-american is a great point to prove, and hopefully that was a direct part of her motivation.

i think doing a little bollywood to represent her country is awesome, and i that any other american who knows their own roots should applaud her.

and people who use 9/11 as an excuse for bigotry should never forget:
