The Miss America Story (as Told By Tweets)

For those of you that aren’t quite caught up on the Miss America story, this is what has transpired and how the world is reacting to it.

The story so far…

No. Wait. Nvm. Racism happened (again)

Seriously, there’s not that many of those.

and they were confused with people who were just mad their fav candidate didn’t win.

because she sounds pretty bad ass

But she didn’t win, and she was very gracious about it.

Anyway, besides the hate and racism on Twitter…

There were people who were genuinely happy and others who were kinda meh. This list is about those people. Not the haters or the racist people, because they’re like stray cats. If you feed them, they keep coming back.

1. New Yorkers are pretty stoked


You know. She’s from there

she’s like, Really New York

One of the momentous days of her life and she goes to the Freedom Tower for a moment of silence

2. Princesses were happy.

Because they called it.

3. The Pew Research Center was happy

Because they got to make this chart.

4. Miss California shunned the racists

Bc she’s a Stanford grad from the Bay Area who’s a techie and she hates stereotypes.

5. This long-lost relative WAS VERY EXCITED

6. Celebrities were pretty stoked

7. Brunettes were like yay!!

8. People with eyes were very pleased.

10/10 would take out to dinner to a nice restaurant.

9. People from the South were happy too

10. People who like Indian people more than guns were very pleased

Yay! :) Me too!!

11. Indian people were cautiously optimistic

Hari Kondabolu brings up a good point

Okay, maybe not ALL Indian people were pleased


12. Space… People (?) were happy too

13. Mr. Sass over here…

14. This lady who didn’t even care

Not exciting enough for her. Meh.

15. This guy who thinks unless your name is John Smith, you don’t “go here”…

He wasn’t too pleased.

He better watch out bc everyone has a friend like Pam Myers

When someone starts something with “umm” you know they’re going to let you have it

16. If it looks like an American and talks like an American…

17. This guy who really just cares about Nina’s well being

18. *sigh* he got very misinterpreted, I think.

19. This guy who thinks Miss Kansas should have won because she “speaks Chinese”

20. People who aren’t really Arab, but look like they could be.

Exactly, Hari. Exactly.
