Though Mic could not independently confirm that Hay, whose personal account is now private, wrote the tweets herself, dozens of users have screengrabbed the exchanges — and, unsurprisingly, they're pissed off.

Among the disgruntled was former Miss Teen USA Kamie Crawford, who said that as a pageant winner herself, she couldn't understand the lack of preparation for media attention on Hay's part.

Before Hay had even received her crown, the pageant had already sparked controversy over the fact that its top 5 finalists lacked diversity.

Now that Hay's past tweets have been unearthed, all that's left to do is to sit back and wait to see if the Miss USA Organization decides to take any disciplinary action against their newly crowned queen.
