Miss Turkey stripped of her crown after ONE day over a bloody period tweet

Talk about a bloody mess…

Be it a well intended tweet that went awry or just bad taste, Miss Turkey 2017 has been stripped of her title.

The now deleted tweet was posted in July by 18-year-old Itir Esen, marking the first anniversary of the July 15, 2016 military coup attempt in Turkey, the New York Post reported.

“I got my period on the morning of the July 15 martyrs’ day. I’m marking the day by bleeding as a representation of the martyrs’ blood,” the beauty queen reportedly said on Twitter.

Esen was named Miss Turkey on Thursday, but her reign was short-lived, being stripped of the title on Friday after her post was seen as insulting to the 250 people who died while opposing last year’s failed coup.

Organizers did not learn of the tweet until after the competition — Esen denied the Twitter account was hers, but officials deemed otherwise.

“We are sad to announce that we have reached the conclusion that the tweet was posted by Itir Esen,” the head of the Miss Turkey Organization, Can Sandikcioglu, said, according to The Post. “It is not possible for the Miss Turkey Organization, whose aim is to promote Turkey worldwide and to contribute to its image, to accept such a posting.”

Runner-up Asli Sumen will now represent Turkey at the Miss World contest in China.
