The winner of a make-up artist contest said she was disqualified after the contest promoter found out she is a supporter of President Donald Trump.
Gypsy Freeman, who lives in Kansas and Florida, was declared the winner of a contest sponsored by makeup line Kat Von D Beauty, in which contestants had to post photos of a model in a “Saint + Sinner” theme as a promotion for the company’s new line of make-up, according to screenshots.
Freeman won with two, professionally-shot side by side photos posted to Instagram. She and her photographer, Jenn Bischoff, were supposed to be flown out to the Kat Von D Saint + Sinner launch party and receive a prize package worth more than $2000.

One that we reveal to the world and another we keep hidden inside. A duality governed by the balance of light and darkness, within each of us is the capacity for both good and evil. But those who are able to blur the moral dividing line hold the true power. -Emily Thorne A post shared by FacesOfGypsy LLC (@facesofgypsy) on Jun 11, 2017 at 6:10pm PDT
But then Von D fans discovered a pro-Trump post on Freeman’s Instagram page from Election Day in 2016 and immediately alerted the well-known tattoo artist and former reality TV star.
Von D then direct-messaged Freeman to say that she had to “drawn a personal line in the sand between myself and anyone who supports that man,” according to screenshots of the conversation.
“My launch party (and my brand) celebrates many things that Trump is against,” Von D continued, according to the screenshots. “And I just need you to know that I personally have a hard time with inviting anyone who would support such an anti-feminist, anti-homosexual/LGBT, anti-immigrant, and anti-climate change fascist such as Trump.”
