Newly crowned Miss Teen USA is from Tomball...and used to drop the "N" bomb pretty casually

    Background info: twitter was already relatively upset that the finalists were...err..."homogenous"

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">These are your TOP 5 <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/MissTeenUSA?src=hash">#MissTeenUSA</a> contestants! <a href="https://t.co/qi3KJT6COb">pic.twitter.com/qi3KJT6COb</a></p>&mdash; Karlie Hay (@MissTeenUSA) <a href="https://twitter.com/MissTeenUSA/status/759561553423142914">July 31, 2016</a></blockquote>

    But the s*** truly hit the fan when the winner's old tweets were unearthed.

    FWIW, she was 14 at the time and I don't believe she is racist. However, there is definitely something wrong with the casual use of such a hateful word.

    Some are truly hurt and others are using this to be outrage at yet another thing.

    Meh, we have a president who used to casually use the same word when he was growing up. I don't see a reason to freak out about it unless there is some evidence she actually did something wrong or is legitimately racist.

    I swear people just try to their best to be upset about everything now a days, isn't it a bit tiring.

    All the effort to dig up old tweets from when she was a 14 year old, because she won a teen pageant that's about looking like a real life barbie doll. Time and outrage should really be saved for something much more meaningful than this my niggas

    Well she spelled it with an "er" so that is alarming. Is he had spelled it 'niggas' not so much, maybe.

    I find it disappointing that our culture still cares so much about things like beauty pageants.
