We’ve officially got a new Miss USA, and she’s an incredibly accomplished winner even without a crown. Kára McCullough, Miss District of Columbia was crowned 2017’s Miss USA last night, but she has already earned herself plenty of social media foes after her answer to questions about feminism.

The new Miss USA received backlash after calling herself an “equalist,” as opposed to a feminist. The social media backlash was swift, with Twitter users expressing outrage over the responses.

The 25-year-old is a nuclear scientist at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, but some of her answers during the question-and-answer segment didn’t sit well with viewers.

McCullough was asked, “What do you consider feminism to be and do you consider yourself a feminist?”

She responded, “As a woman scientist in the government, I’d like to transpose the word feminism to equalism. I try not to consider myself this die-hard, like, I don’t really care about men.”
