Ms. Nevada, who was set to compete in the Ms. America pageant, has been stripped of her crown and told she would not be allowed to compete for Ms. America.
Katie Williams recorded a video explaining that she believes it was her support for Trump that got her nixed:
Here’s more from KOLOTV:
Ms. Nevada Katie Williams says she has lost her crown because of her conservative political beliefs, just days before the Ms. America pageant.
The Ms. America Pageant has confirmed that it has removed Williams from their competition. The pageant posted a statement on its website which notes that it is a “No Politics” pageant and that Williams had signed an agreement to keep her politics separate from her pageant social media page.
The pageant statement also says, in part, “Ms. Williams acknowledged both verbally and in writing that she understood these rules before she was accepted into the pageant. Nothing on her Facebook Page had any political statements at the time she was accepted into the pageant.
Williams tells KOLO 8 News Now, “I’m upset I mean don’t get me wrong this is something I really wanted to do and I worked really hard to do and I you know, you go and try to make your best self for people you don’t even know and of course you want them to view you as a role model.”
The Ms. America pageant Rules and Regulations says the contest is for women 26 years of age and older who are single, divorced, widowed or married – with or without children.
In the video, Williams says the director told her to create a separate page for her political posts and she did. But she said the director kept calling about her personal page regardless of it being a separate page and kept complaining about it.
Just to give you some idea of her posts, here’s a few of her latests posts:
I’m inclined to believe Williams just because of the mere fact that there’s so much Trump hatred among liberals these days and they tend to react this way to Trump supporters.
