Despite stumbling in both her much-panned evening gown and her interview question, Betty Cantrell was crowned Miss America last night — and Tom Brady fans are livid about it.
Cantrell was asked if Tom Brady should be held accountable for deflated footballs — and, throwing the idea of “innocent until proven guilty” right out the window, Cantrell responded that if there is any doubt, that means he definitely cheated. But she would like to feel his balls before she decides for sure.

Even host Chris Harrison looked peeved at her response — and the Internet totally freaked out, too.
@espn I feel dumber, just for listening to her answer. You awarded no points, and may God have mercy on your soul, Ms Merica.
