當不成選美冠軍的華裔姑娘 轉身成了川普的競選顧問

http://dailynews.sina.com   2019年07月28日 05:08   鳳凰網

前幾日剛被“美利堅世界小姐”(Miss World America)主辦方剝奪“密歇根小姐”頭銜,取消選美比賽資格的華裔姑娘凱西·朱(Kathy Zhu),轉身成了川普競選團隊的顧問。

本月14日,密歇根州的華裔姑娘凱西豔壓羣芳,在“美利堅世界小姐”選美比賽中摘得密歇根小姐桂冠頭銜。

不過,就在她躊躇滿志地準備角逐下一階段的比賽之時,主辦方卻突然通知她,她的冠軍頭銜被撤銷了,而給出的理由是,凱西在社交媒體上“種族主義、仇視伊斯蘭教和麻木不仁”(racist, Islamophobic, and Insensitive)的言論違反了規則。

Last week, Zhu spoke out against the Miss World America competition’s leadership for revoking her title in light of her past statements.

上週,凱西公開反對美利堅世界小姐大賽,因她過去的言論而撤銷了她冠軍頭銜的做法。

According to an email Zhu shared signed by the organization’s director, Laurie DeJack, the disgraced winner’s “social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content” that breached “MWA’s Rules and Conditions, specifically the contestant requirement of ‘being of good character and whose background is not likely to bring into disrepute Miss World America or any person associated with the organization.’”

跟據凱西分享的電子郵件,這份由選美大賽主辦方總監Laurie DeJack簽署的郵件,醜化凱西的社交媒體賬號,稱她的“社交媒體賬戶包含攻擊性、麻木不仁和不恰當的內容”,違反了“美利堅世界小姐的規則和條件,特別是對選手要求的‘品格良好以及身世背景不會給美利堅世界小姐或任何與組織相關聯的個人帶來不良聲譽。”

據凱西稱,主辦方的這個決定,是基於2017年她在社交媒體上發表的關於黑人的言論,以及2018年她在校園內拒絕試戴伊斯蘭教頭巾的事件。

One of the tweets she said Miss World America found inappropriate included her comments on black on black gun violence.

凱西說,美利堅世界小姐發現她的一條推特不合適,其中包含她對黑人和黑人槍支暴力的評論。

"Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others," she wrote.

“你知道大多數黑人的死亡是由其他黑人造成的嗎?在指責他人之前,先解決你所在社區的問題吧,”她寫道。

Her tweet was in response to another user who had tweeted Vice President Mike Pence to say, "STOP KILLING BLACK PEOPLE !!!" regarding police violence against African-Americans.

她的推特是對另一名推特用戶的回應,該用戶在推特上引用了美國副總統麥克·彭斯就警察對非洲裔美國人的暴力行爲所說的話發表推文,“停止殺害黑人!!”

She also came under fire for a February 2018 tweet about a hijab booth at University of Central Florida, which she attended before transferring to the University of Michigan. Though it appears Zhu has deleted the tweet, the Orlando Sentinel published a screengrab of it.

2018年2月,她在推特上發佈了一條關於中佛羅里達大學一個試戴頭巾攤位的推文,也受到抨擊。在轉到密歇根大學之前,她曾就讀於中佛羅里達大學。儘管凱西似乎已經刪除了這條推文,但《奧蘭多哨兵報》還是刊登了這條推文的截屏。

"There's a 'try a hijab on' booth at my college campus. So you're telling me that it's now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?" the tweet reads.

“在我的大學校園裏有一個‘試試戴下頭巾’的攤位。所以你是說它現在只是一種時尚配飾而不是宗教用品?還是說,你只是想讓女性習慣在伊斯蘭教的壓迫下生活?”她的推文這樣寫道。

在隨後CNN對她的採訪中,凱西依然堅守自己的觀點。

“Everything that I’ve posted was my statistics and opinions, and I think that we should be empowering women’s voices and not just stripping them of their title only because of their opinions,” she said.

她說:“我發佈的所有信息都是我的統計數據和觀點。我認爲,我們應該賦予女性話語權,而不是僅僅因爲她們的觀點就剝奪她們的權利。”

現年20歲的凱西,出生於中國山東青島,年幼時隨父母移民美國。目前擔任密歇根大學校園共和黨協會副主席的凱西,作爲美國總統川普的忠實擁躉,經常在社交媒體發表保守黨政治言論,並吸引了8萬名粉絲。

就在凱西被剝奪選美冠軍頭銜之後不久,她收到了川普競選團隊的邀約。

Kathy Zhu has landed on her feet after losing her title as "Miss Michigan," taking a position on the "Women for Trump Coalition Advisory Board".

在失去了“密歇根小姐”的頭銜後,凱西·朱時來運轉,在“川普聯合顧問委員會的女性成員”一職上站穩了腳跟。

"[Zhu] is a patriot who has continued to stand for American values despite being stripped of her crown,' the Trump campaign tweeted on Thursday.

川普競選團隊週四在推特上寫道:“(朱)是一位愛國者,儘管被剝奪了桂冠,但她仍然堅持美國價值觀。”

The announcement came shortly after Zhu, a University of Michigan student and president of her campus' College Republicans chapter, posted about the Miss World America pageant's decision to strip her of her title.

朱在網上發佈了美利堅世界小姐選美大賽取消她頭銜的消息後不久,川普競選團隊宣佈這則任命消息了。朱是密歇根大學的一名學生,也是該校共和黨分會的副主席。
