Miss Puerto Rico Destiny Vélez showed her true colors on Thursday when she engaged on a Twitter dialogue that attacked Muslims and Documentary Filmmaker Michael Moore. The Miss American contestant addressed Moore after he shared a photo of him standing outside the Trump Tower holding a sign that read “We are all Muslim.”

“All what Muslims have done is provided oil and terrorize this country and many others,” she wrote in response to those who confronted her point of view. “There’s NO comparison between Jews, Christians and Muslims. Jews nor Christians have terrorizing agendas in their sacred books,” she continued. She didn’t stop there. Vélez replied to several Twitter users and expressed how offended she was to see someone stand with a group of people she catalogues as dangerous, anti-American, and nothing like other religions. 

After the terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump called for barring all Muslims from entering the United States and his proposal was met with enthusiasm by many of his supporters, including the 20-year-old beauty queen who has a very strong opinion about the religious group.
