Ex-Ms. Nevada Says She Lost Crown Over Trump Support

A Las Vegas beauty queen says she was stripped of her Ms. Nevada crown because she publicly supports President Donald Trump. 

"I just don't understand how you can censor someone with conservative values, when I'm not even really saying anything that's bad," Katie Williams, posted on Facebook while announcing she had been kicked out of this weekend's Ms. America pageant at The Queen Mary in Long Beach, Calif., reports NBC News.

In a statement, pageant officials said Williams was told to keep her political commentary to her personal social media pages and to create a separate page for postings related to the pageant. 

"Katie Williams is distorting the facts," the statement said. "She has her personal Facebook page to voice her political views. However, the Ms. Nevada Facebook page should be devoid of political content."

Williams claimed on Facebook that a pageant official continued to follow her personal page and emailed her about how she didn't agree with what she had been posting. 

Ms. America CEO Susan Jeske, however, said William's personal page, which was filled with support for Trump, also had images from the competition, making it a pageant page as well. 

On Williams' personal page, her profile photo shows her wearing a "Trump 2020" cap, but she's also shown in her Ms. Nevada crown and sash in other photos. 

Throughout the page, she also sticks up for many of Trump's talking points, including on socialism, Antifa, and "Democratic socialists."
