Nina Davuluri made history on Sunday, Sept. 15, when she became the first-ever Indian American woman to be crowned Miss America. Unfortunately, shortly after her big win, the 24-year-old was subjected to an onslaught of mean-spirited and racist tweets.
"How the f--k does a foreigner win miss America? She is a Arab! #idiots," one user wrote. Another echoed, "Miss New York is an Indian.. With all do respect, this is America." Other Twitter users accused Davuluri of being a member of the terrorist group Al Qaeda. (Many of the tweets have since been deleted.)
