Miss World Turkey 2017 Stripped of her Title over Coup Tweet

The winner of Miss World Turkey 2017 title has been stripped of her crown hours after winning the Miss Turkey 2017 pageant. The culprit: a twitter post.

Itir Esen, an 18-year-old English Student, had her crown taken away after the pageant organization discovered her harsh tweet posted last July. The tweet was posted around the first anniversary of the 15 July coup attempt, when nearly 250 people died fighting government's army.

“I got my period on the morning of the July 15 martyrs’ day. I’m marking the day by bleeding as a representation of the martyrs’ blood.”

Itir denied the social media account was hers but after a thorough investigation, the tweet was from her legit account.

“We regret to inform that such a tweet has been posted by Itır Esen. It is not possible for the Miss Turkey Organization to promote such a post, when it aims to introduce Turkey to the world and contribute to its image,” the statement said.

With Itir's out, the Miss World Turkey 2017 will now belong to Asli Sumen who previously named as Miss Universe Turkey. She will now represent her country at the Miss World 2017 competition in China on November 18.
