The crowning of Miss America was not as happy as many would have liked it to be.

Nina Davuluri had the tiara placed on her head and the tweets began to flow, but they were not exactly tweets of congratulations.  Several were of a racist slant.  Davuluri was born in America, but is of Indian descent, the first Indian-American to be crowned.  Many fans were expressing their opinions via Twitter.

Some of the tweets read:

"If you're #Miss America you should have to be American," said one.

"WHEN WILL A WHITE WOMAN WIN #MISSAMERICA? Ever??!!" screamed another.
