Nina Davuluri’s
  (pictured) victory as the first Miss America of Indian heritage isn’t sitting well with some on Twitter, according to the NY Daily News.

Shortly after the Syracuse-born, Oklahoma-raised Davuluri won the Miss America title Sunday evening, people began questioning her American status, with one man posting:

How the f–k does a foreigner win miss America? She is a Arab! #idiots.

A user named Morgan seemed to think along the same lines:


Twitter user Luke Brasili wrote:

9/11 was 4 days ago and she gets miss America?”

Brasili also added a picture of a terrorist holding an automatic rifle, but as of press time, his account was inaccessible.

And Nick Pizzo put his thoughts more succinctly:


Fox News commentator Todd Starnes also criticized Davuluri’s Bollywood fusion dance Sunday, saying she failed to display “American values.”

Starnes also compared Davuluri to Theresa Vail, a Kansas army sergeant who won the America’s Vote section of the pageant:


Speaking at her first press conference since winning, Davuluri shook off the attacks. “I have to rise above that,”  she said. “I always viewed myself as first and foremost American. I’m so happy this organization has embraced diversity. I’m thankful there are children watching at home who can finally relate to a new Miss America.”

And after one Twitter user wrote, “I’m not a racist. She is representing America doing an Indonesian dance. If it was a Miss Universe pageant it would have been cool,” she was hit pretty hard by commenters:

“You do know that India and Indonesia are two different countries … right?” a responder said.

The woman has since deleted her account.
