The Miss Seattle 2012 Pageant was held at the IKEA Performing Arts Center in Renton on March 3. Out of 20 contestants, Jean-Sun Hannah Ahn, an Arizona State University graduate, was crowned that night. Though a Seattle-native, Ahn is a former Miss Phoenix. She will go on to compete for Miss Washington this summer.
Overshadowing Ahn’s accomplishment, however, are tweets she posted on the Internet three months ago, which is being covered extensively by news outlets.
“Ugh, can’t stand cold rainy Seattle and the annoying people,” Anh wrote on Twitter. Ahn has recently apologized for the remarks. (end)
