KIMIHIRO HOSHINO/AFP/Getty Images(SEATTLE) — The new Miss Seattle has had her crown for less than a week and is already apologizing for a Twitter rant about Seattle’s incessant rain and says she didn’t mean it when she talked about the city’s “annoying people.”

Jean-Sun Hannah Ahn was crowned Miss Seattle 2012 on Saturday night and since then tweets that the 22-year-old posted criticizing the city’s rain and its residents were unearthed by a local reporter, sparking outcry online.

In December Ahn tweeted: “Ew, I’m seriously hating Seattle right now.” She went on: “Take me back to az! Ugh can’t stand cold rainy Seattle and the annoying people.”

Ahn apologized for the tweets and explained to a local radio station that she had just moved from Phoenix back to Seattle and was still acclimating to the weather.

Ahn, also a former Miss Phoenix, posted the controversial tweets from her old account @MissPhoenix 2010 on Dec. 10, 2011. Since her win, she has taken down the tweets and changed her account to @MissSeattle2012.
