Winner of Miss Turkey Tweeted Her Way Out of the Title


Itir Esen - miss Turkey 2017 was stripped of her title after one of her former tweets came to light.

Winner of Miss Turkey Tweeted Her Way Out of the Title

"I am having my period this morning to celebrate the July 15 martyrs' day. I am celebrating the day by bleeding a representation of our martyrs' blood."

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish president, often talks about martyrs who died resisting the coup.

Winner of Miss Turkey Tweeted Her Way Out of the Title

Now, although she stated this tweet was in no way political in nature, and she meant nothing wrong by it, the cards fell where they did and she was dismissed as miss Turkey 2017.

Do you think she was inappropriate by equating her period to the deaths of martyrs who fought for their country?

Or was she just trying to, in some odd adolescent way, connect her biological experience with her countries'?

In my opinion, it was inappropriate and insensitive, but on the other hand adolescents do these kinds of things all the time... She might've been reprimanded, but stripping her of her title might've gone too far...but then again, native Turks may disagree with me.

What do you think?

    This is a thoughtless comment that is over the top. When someone holds a title like this, they are held to a higher standard because they serve as a role model for many younger girls. Perhaps you would excuse any other teen who made this comment but not someone who wants to be a role model.

    Is this still revelant?

    I really don't care about the loss of her crown. The tweet is obnoxious, no doubt about that. It is disrespect.
    The new Miss Turkey is more beautiful anyway:

    While I don't really care about "beauty contests", as it's something you can't really measure, thus it only matters how many wealthy cocks girls had to suck to acquire the title, however:

    >> "I am celebrating the day by bleeding a representation of our martyrs' blood."

    >> "celebrating.. by bleeding"

    Scraping the barrel a bit and the tweet is just ridiculousness in itself.
    Did she deserve to lose her title? Yes, because she is talking about martyrs dying for their cause and including her menstruation in the same sentence. Its inappropriate and makes a mockery of what they died for.

    Iโ€™m Turkish and i believe that people make mistakes but maybe they couldโ€™ve asked if she regretted tweeting that or what was the aim behind it. This situation is going to come up to her later in her life and it just feels bad she will be facing so much hatred at such a young age. By the way, she is a friend of my brotherโ€™s best friend.

    Hmm... I'm torn. Her comment was stupid but I do not think she meant harm by it. I've seen titles get taken away for much lighter reasons and not be taken away for much bigger comments so by the sheer nature of the competition's inconsistency, it's hard for me to care what she said.
  • lyannamormont
    I mean it is clearly inappropriate to say that but on the other hand Turkish government gets oversensitive and offended by every single thing. Anyways, I am glad she is out of first place because the girl who came second originally is much better looking. Hahah.

    The Miss USA or Miss whatever contests have been political for a long time, just the game.

    Remember Carrie Prejean, who was outright hated for her stance of marriage being between a man and woman? And that was one year after her State passed Proposition 8 by a popular vote.

    It's not just that, she also said the following thing in another tweet:
    "erdoฤŸanฤฑn yarraฤŸฤฑnฤฑ yiyin zaaaaaaaa" which means "suck erdogan's dick zaaaaaa"

    The wordish thing "zaaaaa" is a kind of a thing that you say after insulting a person o group of person in turkish slang language. Mostly used by brainless, dipshit teenagers.

    I am with your sentiment that it is an awkward possibly attention seeking statement that happens often in todays world - I often think back to my teens and twenties feeling that if social media was as prevalent then as it is now I might be in a whole lot of trouble. To your question, I feel it is a bit harsh I don't think she meant any offence - To any budding beauty queens keep all tweets to world peace and ending hunger in future.
  • lord_chilled
    I think it was right. When someone is in a position where a whole country can watch him/her, and he/she basically represents that country, its necessary that they put a good example. An idiotic tweet like that, wether it was disrespectful or just childish, is not acceptable for someone in such a position. Especially not in a conservative country like turkey.
  • anewgirl
    What a strange thing to say. But I don't think it was worthy of losing her title.

    Innocent mistake, misconstrued intentions. She was making a joke, but the stakes were too high. They can't all be gold.
  • HereToProveMyPoint
    Personally I think it was inappropriate of her to say this but it's too far to strip her of the title, it's not THAT bad
  • CubsterShura
    I'm not sure what to say about this. But if she belonged to our nation and posted about our martyrs like that, I'd say she deserves to be shot in front of the monument in early morning.
