Miss Teen USA Twitter trouble: Winner apologizes for racist tweets

Karlie Hay was crowned Miss Teen USA Saturday night in Las Vegas, but just hours after her shining moment, the pageant winner was under fire. Social media users uncovered past tweets from Hay showing she used the N-word on several occasions.
