LAS VEGAS -- The Miss Teen USA competition has really been in the spotlight lately.
First, dumping the swimsuit competition and switching it to athletic wear to highlight a healthier lifestyle and now; they've just crowned a girl with a dirty mouth.
Yeah, after being crowned Miss Teen USA Saturday night in Las Vegas, it was discovered that little Miss Karlie Hay, from Texas, liked to use the n-word on twitter a few years back.
The eighteen year old's twitter past came to bite her in the-you-know what as soon she was declared the winner because apparently no one cared before that.

those tweets were 3 years old, but the N word has been off limits for about 50 years. There is no excuse.

Even past Miss Teen USA winner, Kamie Crawford, wasn't too happy with hay's dirty mouth. She tweeted out this:
I can take the #missteenusa top 5 being an all white, all blonde top 5. What I can't take is - why didn't the winner clean up her page? 🤔🤔🤔

Since winning, Hay has put out an apology out on twitter saying:
I admit that I have used language publicly in the past which I am not proud of and that there is no excuse for. Through hard work...

She's owned up and admitted her mistake. Now, we just have to wait and see if she gets to keep her crown.
