Kira Kazantsev, who competed as Miss New York, and walked away with the crown of 2015 Miss America, was kicked out of her college sorority for “abusive hazing”, according to the website Jezebel.

Jezebel says, “Kazantsev and a friend were both kicked out of the Alpha Phi sorority at Hofstra University on Long Island after hazing pledges. At the time, Kazantsev was serving as the sorority’s head of recruitment.”

Kazantsev has responded, and told ABC’s Good Morning America ““All I can do is sit here and be honest and share that, yes, I was involved under the broad definition of hazing at some point but never ever in a million years what this is claiming to hold,” she said of the Jezebel report.
