Tik Tok is attempting to take out newly-crowned, 17-year-old Miss Teen Washington for using the N-word when she was just 14, and the outrage is just as ugly as you’d expect.
In the clip, posted by Tik Tok user @juliuspleazerfanaccount, a much younger Kate Dixon is seen in the back of a car saying, “gangster n****r” as she gives a “thumbs down” sign. The video then cuts to clips of Dixon lip-syncing to other vulgar Tik Tock videos, mouthing the words, “I’m Amber,” followed by a shot of her equally-young friend mouthing, “I only love men when they have big c***s.”
That was enough to once again ignite the mob’s tiki torches, as calls to strip Dixon of her title flooded the replies.
The video has been viewed 2.1 million times and has received nearly 24,000 comments.
Comments such as: “Literally, take her crown back,” and, “Just because she said it years ago, doesn’t make it okay. She needs to know that her actions have consequences.”
I screamed. This happened 2 days ago.
Over on Twitter, things weren’t much better.
“I live in Washington state and I do not want this vulgar little [B***h] representing my state or anything,” wrote one user. “Wash that dirty little mouth out with soap!”

An extended video was sent to Seattle’s FOX 13 via a “tipster,” with such bonus clips as Dixon mouthing the words, “People think I’m a coke w***e, but I’ve never done coke — on weekdays.”
“Be sure to bully everyone in high school,” Dixon lip-syncs in another clip. “Why? Because it builds character for them.”
And, in true “Mean Girl” fashion, Dixon mouths the words, “I never get sad. Why would I? I’m pretty!”
It’s not a good look for a teenage pageant queen, but neither is it new news.
And according to Dixon, who joined FOX 13 for an interview, it was she who was being bullied. Or, at least, peer-pressured.
“They coerced me into saying a racial slur,” she said. “I told them, ‘No, I don’t want to say that. I know that’s not appropriate.’ And they told me, ‘You have a free pass just this one time. It would be funny.’ So I decided, after much persuasion, I said the word that they wanted me to say and without my knowledge, I was recorded.”
The video of the 14-year-old using the slur was posted to social media a week later, and, despite her public school apology, Dixon was forced to transfer after much bullying that included death threats.
Whether you believe her explanation or not, Dixon is definitely not laughing now.
According to the teen, the damning video resurfaces every time she accomplishes anything.
In the interview, she again apologizes to anyone who was offended by her use of the N-word, adding, she is “very deeply sorry.”
“I have learned my lesson,” she said, “and I have not used that word — to this day, I have not used that word.”
Perhaps the most surprising part of this story is that Pageants Northwest, which oversees the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA organizations, knew about the video way back in October 2020. To Pageants Northwest’s credit, they defended their decision to accept Dixon’s contestant application, stating that part of their mission is to empower people to “be the best versions of themselves.”
Not everyone is piling on the teen queen.
On Twitter, some users are offering their support and some understanding.
“Thank goodness social media wasn’t around when Eazy E and Too Short were released. I’d be canceled,” wrote one user, who asked, “Can she apologize with Whoopie?”
Another user pointed out the problem isn’t with a 14-year-old mouthing lyrics to a song, it’s with the people who recorded it with the N-word in it. “Leave her alone, for goodness sake,” he wrote.
And another user called for compassion during Black History Month, noting, “obviously it wasn’t said in hate, and she’s apologized again.”
“A second chance,” the user added. “Be happy Kate Dixon.”

Resurfaced clip of Miss Teen Washington USA using N-word sparks fury https://t.co/tprU3O1QJP The beef shouldn't be with a 14-yr-old mouthing the lyrics to a song. The beef should be with the person(s) who made the song with the 'n-word' in it. Leave her alone, for goodness sake.
