“The reigning Miss Puerto Rico, Destiny Velez, has found herself indefinitely suspended after a Twitter fight with director Michael Moore as part of his “We Are All Muslim” campaign.
‘Muslims use our constitution to terrorize USA & plant gas stations,” the irate beauty queen ranted, adding, “all what Muslims have done is provided oil & terrorize this country & many others!!!!!!’
The Miss Puerto Rico Association issued a statement announcing her termination, and (surprise!) Valdez apologized soon after. Watch the video above for the whole titillating story.”*
