Apparently, Twitter threw a parade for newly crowned Miss America, Nina Davuluri.

A hate parade.

Davuluri, who reigned as Miss New York, was awarded the top crown on Sunday night in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The 24-year-old is the second winner from her state in the past two years -- but the first of Indian descent.

“I’m so happy this organization has embraced diversity,” she said at her first press conference in Atlantic City. “I’m thankful there are children watching at home who can finally relate to a new Miss America.”

And that may have been too much for some to swallow. Here's a smattering of the scorn smeared across the Twitterverse shortly after Davuluri's coronation -- a minority, but rather shockingly vocal opinion.

Be warned. Hate ahead.

The cruel cavalcade went on, with one user suggesting the coronation must have 'made Obama happy,' while another vented, 'When will a white woman win Miss America?'

Even Fox News host Todd Starnes appeared to get on the hate wagon, tweeting thus:

"The liberal Miss America judges won't say this - but Miss Kansas lost because she actually represented American values."

For her part, Davuluri took the slings and arrows of outrageous America in stride.

“I have to rise above that,” she told reporters at a press conference after the event. “I always viewed myself as first and foremost American.”

As Time magazine reports, it took about an hour after the coronation for the sane side of the Twitterverse to prevail, eventually banishing the bigotry with hearty support and congratulations for the new Miss America.
