Miss D.C. Kára McCullough took home the title of Miss USA this week, but she didn’t do so without a bit of controversy from the question and answer portion of the competition.

Kara was asked to discuss whether “affordable healthcare for all U.S. citizens is a right or a privilege.”

Her response drew a lot of criticism.

“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege. As a government employee, I am granted health care. And I see firsthand that for one to have health care, you need to have jobs. So therefore, we need to continue to cultivate this environment that we’re given the opportunities to have health care as well as jobs to all the American citizens worldwide.”

Kara also drew criticism on her answer about whether or not she considered herself a feminist.

“So as a woman scientist in the government, I’d like to lately transpose the word ‘feminism’ to ‘equalism.’ I don’t really want to consider myself — try not to consider myself like this die-hard, you know, like, ‘Oh, I don’t really care about men.’ But one thing I’m going to say, though, is women, we are just as equal as men when it comes to opportunity in the workplace.”
