Social media was abuzz after Nina Davuluri was crowned as Miss America 2014.
Davuluri is the first woman of Indian descent to win the pageant and wear the crown, and a lot of Tweets were attacking her for her heritage.
She was referred to as "the Arab," by some and other commenters noted "This is America, not India." One called her "Miss 7-11."
With all the grace and composure expected from a Miss America, Davuluri brushed off the comments saying:
"I'm so happy this organization has embraced diversity," she said, according to Associated Press. "I'm thankful there are children watching at home who can finally relate to a new Miss America."
