Ousted Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu Joins Trump Reelection Campaign

After recently being stripped of her title due to several offensive tweets she posted last year, former Miss Michigan winner Kathy Zhu has decided to join the Trump campaign.

While her controversial tweets were posted over a year ago, they recently became widely shared online and generated wide social media attention. 

“There’s a ‘try a hijab on’ booth at my college campus. So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?” Zhu wrote on Twitter in February last year.

“Did you know that the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix Problems within your own community first before blaming others,” she wrote in another post.

Last week, Miss Michigan World sent Zhu an email that notified her that she has been removed from her position. 

 

“It has been brought to the attention of Miss World America ‘MWA’ that you social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content that violate the organization’s rules and conditions,” the letter, which Zhu shared on Twitter, read.

It further stated that since Zhu no longer met the requirement of “being in good character,” she is then no longer recognized as “a participant of any sort or in any capacity as it relates to any and all events of MWA.”   

While she has since deleted her tweets, Zhu tweeted that she stands by them: “I am glad this story came to light because this is more than just some beauty pageant, this is about the prejudice views against people with ‘different opinions.”

Now a proud member of the Women for Trump Coalition Advisory Board, Zhu has been hailed by the colleagues at the campaign as a “patriot who has continued to stand for American values despite being stripped of her crown.”

“I am so excited to now be part of the #WomenforTrump Coalition Advisory Board!” Zhu tweeted. “Let’s get Trump re-elected for 2020.”

Speaking at a Women for Trump event in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan on Friday, Zhu claimed that being openly conservative is extremely difficult.

“It’s harder, I think, than coming out as, honestly, gay,” she said.
