Miss America's latest winner Nina Davuluri is at the center of a racist backlash via twitter.  Davuluri who is of Indian decent made history as the first ever Indian-American to be crowned Miss America. However, instead of receiving mounds of congrats, and blessings for this great accomplishment, Nina was tormented.

Disrespectful tweets flooded twitter moments after she was crowned. People called her everything from an Arab to a Terrorist, as a result.  Buzzfeed captured the racist tweets below
