Miss Swimsuit UK Stripped Of Title Following 'All Lives Matter' Rant

Miss Swimsuit UK Stripped Of Title Following 'All Lives Matter' Rant

A British beauty pageant winner has been stripped of her crown after posting a rant in which she said 'All Lives Matter' as well as declaring that white privilege is a 'leftist lie'.

Jasmine Archer-Jones, who is originally from Chester but now lives in Texas, was named Miss Swimsuit UK last year, but her Facebook rant has now seen that honour taken away from her.

The 23-year-old made the controversial comments online on 3 June. She wrote: "This is ridiculous now. It HAS to STOP. ALL lives matter, if you look deeply into statistics, more UNARMED WHITE people DIED than BLACK last year.

"Yes some people may say George Floyd died when he was innocent but I am yet to see hard evidence of this."

She also claimed police officers were justified to 'use whatever means necessary' to restrain Mr Floyd.

In this case, 'whatever means necessary' meant the police officer kneeling on George Floyd's neck for nearly eight minutes until he died.

Ms Archer-Jones went on to say: "Yes what happened to George Floyd was wrong and unforgivable but so is what happens to many other people of different races in similar situations."

Her post continued: "I DO NOT discriminate against any person. But THIS IS NOT OK."

On their website, they describe Miss Swimsuit UK contestants as 'role models'.
