Katie Williams Wiki – Biography
Katie Williams is the former Ms. Nevada who was recently stripped of her title for posting political content supportingPresident Donald Trump on social media. She is not eligible for the upcoming Ms. America competition that is being held at The Queen Mary in Long Beach, California this Saturday.
Officials at Ms. America contestants may post political opinions and commentary but only on their personal Facebook page. They say that Williams was posting her Trump-related political content to the Ms. Nevada Facebook page which is strictly prohibited.
“None of this had to do with her personal political views. They are immaterial. She has her Personal Facebook page to voice her political views.” Ms. America said in an official statement on their website, “She could be a President Trump supporter on her Personal Facebook page all she wants for everyone to read. However, the Ms. Nevada Facebook Page should be devoid of political content.”

Woman Gets Slammed For Bragging About Eating At Red Robin
Red Robin became the top-trending Twitter topic Saturday night after Katie Williams, the former winner of the 2019 Miss Nevada state pageant, seemingly bragged to New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that she ate out at the restaurant—doing the opposite of what she asked her constituents to do.
Earlier on Saturday, AOC cautioned for New Yorkers to eat at home. She specifically directed her message to people under 40, who might be unknowingly carrying the virus—also known as COVID-19—but not showing symptoms.
“To everyone in NYC but ESPECIALLY healthy people & people under 40 (bc from what I’m observing that’s who needs to hear this again): PLEASE stop crowding bars, restaurants, and public spaces right now,” AOC wrote Saturday. “Eat your meals at home. If you are healthy, you could be spreading COVID.” She defined “crowding” as not being able to keep six-feet away from others.
Hours later, Williams said that she went to Red Robin and enjoyed her meal without regret. “I just went to a crowded Red Robin and I’m 30. It was delicious, and I took my sweet time eating my meal. Because this is America. And I’ll do what I want,” she said.
The message likely garnered more attention after being retweeted by journalist Yashar Ali. “A candidate for Clark County School District in Nevada is bragging about putting other people in danger in an attempt to own @AOC,” he wrote. “Great stuff @realkatiejow! So glad you want to help oversee a school district!”
Heavy.com reached out to Williams and Red Robin but did not receive an immediate response. Williams was disqualified from the 2019 Miss America pageant in August. She told Newsweek it was because of her conservative views.
Williams continued to tweet after her message got picked up. “The media wants you to freak out. Don’t let them dictate your life,” she wrote. “How can you spread a virus, if you’re healthy and aren’t carrying it?”
She joked about wanting an endorsement from Red Robin after the restaurant became a No. 1 Twitter trend.
When you can get @redrobinburgers trending!

She Lost Her Ms. Nevada State Title Because of Her Political Activism
In August, the Ms. America pageant stripped Williams of her silver sash. The pageant said she was not able to detach her political activism from her pageant persona. They did not say it was because of Williams’ support for President Donald Trump, which is what she has claimed.
“Katie Williams is distorting the facts,” Ms. America said in their August statement via NBC News. “ALL the pageant asked of Ms. Williams, in writing, is to keep separate social media accounts.”
They continued: “She has her Personal Facebook page to voice her political views. However, the Ms. Nevada Facebook Page should be devoid of political content.”
Williams maintained that other contestants were political, but hers weren’t accepted because she was conservative. “I just don’t understand how you can censor someone with conservative values when I’m not even really saying anything that’s bad,” Williams said in a Facebook live video. “I feel like if I had more liberal views, less conservative views, that this wouldn’t be an issue.”
Williams Tried To Own AOC
It all started with Williams trying to drag U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York. “I just went to a crowded Red Robin and I’m 30,” she wrote. “It was delicious, and I took my sweet time eating my meal. Because this is America. And I’ll do what I want.”
Her message was in response to AOC advises people to eat their meals at home. “To everyone in NYC but ESPECIALLY healthy people & people under 40 (bc from what I’m observing that’s who needs to hear this again): PLEASE stop crowding bars, restaurants, and public spaces right now. Eat your meals at home,” AOC tweeted. “If you are healthy, you could be spreading COVID.”
Once Williams, an avid Trump supporter, saw her message to AOC was getting attention, she took a screenshot and posted it to her Twitter page. “When you can get @redrobinburgers trending!” she said Saturday. “I want my royalties now.”
She tagged Red Robin a second time in her final tweet of the night. “Their Sweet Potato Fries though!” she posted.
She Slammed AOC on Instagram Before
Saturday’s swing at AOC wasn’t her first attempt. She has posted several videos and news articles that feature the Bronx progressive.
“AOC Talks Economics…I give her a math lesson,” she wrote in February.The former beauty queen also shared a picture of AOC bowing her head under a headline that read, “YIKES: AOC’s Fellow Democrats Likely to Eliminate Her House Seat.”
“We could only hope,” Williams said. “In all seriousness though, we really should do redistricting more than every 10 years. Maybe every 5 because with the movement of our country, more people move in and out of places more than ever before.”
