Everyone knows and loves the “Cup” song – especially when done by Anna Kendrick!
However, when Miss New York, Kira Kazantsev, decided doing cups to Pharrell Williams' Happy was a good idea, the world disagreed. A lot.
When Kira went on to win the Miss America competition things just got even worse, and people can be really harsh!
I MEAN IT'S NOT EVEN A CUP SONG A CAPPELLA. #missamerica

I quit #missamerica. She sang the worst song and banged on a cup. Seriously?

Ladies, I say we compete in #missamerica next year. All we need is a red cup, no voice, & no rhythm!

Even Anna had a say on the whole thing, although she was nice about it…

Things then took an even more embarrassing turn when the caption underneath Kira, which was supposed to relate a fun fact about her read: "Loves anything Jane Austin."
Do you think they meant Jane Austen? Twitter thinks so…
The fact that Miss America just mispelled Jane Austen (Jane Austin) says everything. #missamerica

According to ABC, she loves anything by Jane Austin. Jane Austin. Austin. Seriously. America is doomed.
