Twenty-year-old Destiny Velez, who participated in this year's Miss America pageant as Miss Puerto Rico, was suspended indefinitely after tweeting a series of Islamophobic tweets at filmmaker Michael Moore.
CNN reports that her suspension was prompted by her response to a picture Moore posted last week, in which he's standing outside Trump Tower, holding a sign that reads "We Are All Muslim."
"Muslims use our constitution to terrorize USA and plant gas stations," Velez wrote in a since-deleted Tweet. Some of her other messages included, "There's NO comparison between Jews, Christians & Muslims," "Jews nor Christians have terrorizing agendas in their sacred books," and "all what Muslims have done is provided oil & terrorize this country and many others!!!!!!"
On Saturday, the Miss Puerto Rico Organization issued a statement announcing its decision to suspend Velez: "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."
The statement also included an apology from Velez, who said she "apologiz[ed] to anyone who felt offended with [her] words."
