"Miss Michigan Denounces Flint Water Crisis In Miss America Intro"

The Miss America pageant didn’t feature any swimsuits on Sunday, but thanks to one contestant, it did contain a moment of revealing activism.

Instead of giving the usual upbeat bio during her introduction, Miss Michigan Emily Sioma talked about the Flint water crisis.

“From the state with 84 percent of the U.S. freshwater but none for its residents to drink, I am Miss Michigan Emily Sioma,” she said."
