THE REIGNING Miss Swimsuit UK has been stripped of her title after she posted online that “All Lives Matter” and questioned if George Floyd was innocent.
All trace that Jasmine Archer-Jones, 23, won the 2019 title has been quietly removed from the pageant’s website following her Facebook rant.
She has since deleted the post which said Black Lives Matter protestors were using Floyd’s brutal murder as an “excuse to let loose” after lockdown.
But not before Miss Swimsuit UK organisers were alerted and decrowned their reigning queen.
A source said: “Jasmine has tried to sweep it under the carpet and continue on as if nothing has happened but organisers acted quickly to airbrush her from their history.
“They have posted in support of the Black Lives Matter protest and could not afford to be associated with her.”
Jasmine posted on June 3 that she is “yet to see hard evidence” that George Floyd was “innocent” when he died.
She wrote: “There is video footage of him refusing to get out of his car, which warrants for the police officers to use whtever means necessary to restrain the person.
“He also SUPPOSEDLY had drugs in his system, but I doubt they will release the autopsy now… Oh and let’s not forget that George Floyd also has a criminal record dating back to the 90s.”
She marked the post as her “personal opinion” and said “if you don’t wanna know don’t read” but organisers still dumped her for writing “all lives matter”.
The model from Chester who moved to Texas after winning the title said: “If you look deeply into statistics, more UNARMED WHITE people DIED than BLACK last year.”
She finished off the post by saying: “I DO NOT discriminate against any person. But THIS IS NOT OK.”
Jasmine was crowned champion of the 2019/20 competition in September and she went on to finish 13th in the world at the Miss Swimsuit USA final.
She did have a link on Instagram to the competition website while the organisation’s own page on the platform linked to her social media as the “current queen”.
But she has been told to remove the link while Miss Swimsuit UK now lists 2018 winner Kinna Louise as their queen.
Jasmine is also no longer listed in the Previous Winners category of the pageant’s website and any photos of her have been deleted.
The organisation posted in support of the BLM movement last month shortly before Jasmine was quietly decrowned.
They wrote on Instagram: “When is the human race going to figure out once and for all that we are all the same. Love one another.”
After Jasmine won last year, Miss Swimsuit UK said: “Jasmine is looking forward to 2020 and helping to empower the next contestants, she will be attending the events to help coach and inspire.”
Jasmine was approached for comment.
