"WHEN WILL A WHITE WOMAN WIN #MISSAMERICA? Ever??!!" said another.
Davuluri is also the first beauty queen of Indian descent to serve as Miss New York.
But instead of focusing on how a New Yorker had won the beauty pageant for the second consecutive year, the tweets were about Davuluri's heritage.
"Well, they just picked a Muslim for Miss America. That must've made Obama happy. Maybe he had a vote," vented one person cited by the news channel pointing that Davuluri was not a Muslim and the President didn't have a vote.
Davuluri herself brushed aside the negative comments saying, "I have to rise above that. I always viewed myself as first and foremost American.”
