Miss Puerto Rico Destiny Velez has been suspended after criticizing Muslims on Twitter
Miss Puerto Rico Destiny Velez has been suspended indefinitely from Miss America competition after she fired off a series of tweets about Islamic terrorism 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 recently 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." In her tweets, Velez pointed out that Muslims were engaged in terrorism in the United States as well as in other countries.
