Miss Puerto Rico Suspended for Tweets: 'Islamic God is NOT the Same God as Christians & Jews'

2015 Miss Puerto Rico Destiny Velez has been suspended after sending out a series of tweets critical of Islam.

The tweets were addressed to filmmaker Michael Moore, who recently stood in front of Trump Tower in New York holding a sign that read "We Are All Muslim."

In response Velez, 20, tweeted:

"There's NO comparison between Jews, Christians and Muslims. Jews nor Christians have terrorizing agendas in their sacred books." 

"All what Muslims have done is provided oil and terrorize this country & many others! All they do is build their mosques, feel offended by American values and terrorize innocent Americans and plant gas stations." 

"Most terrorist attacks have had a religion & a name associated with them & they have been from Islam religion."  

"Many pull out the card of Muslims serving in our military. Are they in the military cuz [because] they love our nation or to acquire benefits."

"Why do ppl [people] want to separate Muslims from Isis when ISIS is a group of Muslim fanatics." 

"All they do is build their mosques, feel offended by American values and terrorize innocent Americans and plant gas stations and get guns and kills innocent ppl [people] and destroy precious artifacts." 

"Muslims use our constitution to terrorize USA & plant gas stations."

"Islamic god is NOT the same God as Christians & Jews"

 

Shortly after, the Miss Puerto Rico Organization announced that Velez had been suspended: "Miss Velez's actions were in contradiction to the organization, and therefore as a consequence of her actions, she has been suspended indefinitely. The Miss Puerto Rico Organization will not tolerate any actions or behavior contrary to the Miss Puerto Rico Organization."

Velez apologized for her comments shortly after. "I stand up against bullying," she said. "The last thing I wanted to do was to bully anyone. I apologize to anyone who felt offended with my words."
