    Ex-Miss America Says She Was Forced To Move Her Seat Because She’s Black

    Miss Florida Ericka Dunlap

    Miss America 2004, Ericka Dunlap wants an apology from the beauty pageant organization after she was forced to move from her seat.

    According to TMZ, Ericka is claiming racism after a producer moved her from a prime seat during the competition last weekend because she’s black, but the reality is, Ericka was sitting in a no-Miss America zone.

    Dunlap — the first black woman to win Miss Florida in 2003 — tells TMZ, “I was sitting there on the aisle, and during the first commercial break during top 15 announcement, a producer came up to me and said, ‘Get out of that seat. I need the seat. I don’t give a f**k who you are. Get out of the f**king seat.’”

    Dunlap says she refused to move because of the producer’s tone, telling us, “I was spoken to as if I didn’t matter. If I were any other Miss America, I would have never been spoken to like that. But I’m the only black one who comes back.”

    Dunlap says an assistant producer eventually came over and helped the first producer physically remove her from her seat — “I was mortified.” Dunlap says she was eventually relocated.

    She’s still waiting for an apology.
