Just when the brand new Miss America, Nina Davuluri, should be basking in the glow of victory for being crowned the new reigning queen, Nina has to deal with a racist backlash on Twitter.

Davuluri has been called everything from an Al-Queda terrorist to a Muslim (she's not Muslim), to "Miss 7-11" and even "That Arab who is not even an American".

Fortunately, Nina has brushed off this overt racism, saying "I have to rise above that. I always viewed myself as first and foremost American."
