“Sorry maybe miss Bollywood or miss terrorist but not miss America,” wrote one viewer.
Some viewers vented their outrage stating that the winner is not a “true American” and vow to stop watching future pageants all together.
"Miss America right now or miss Al Qaeda?" tweeted Shannon McCann.
Davuluri is a graduate of the University of Michigan. During her year as Miss America she will serve as spokesperson for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD), up to 24 million people of all ages and genders suffer from an eating disorder (anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder) in the U.S.
Davuluri hopes young women who watched the pageant will contemplate the healthy aspects of what she calls her "weight loss journey."
