Twitter has uncovered a shocking tidbit about actress Ellie Kemper.
The 'Kimmy Schmidt' actress was apparently part of some sort of high class beauty pageant in 1999 that was reportedly associated with the Ku Klux Klan and the Confederacy.
She was crowned the 'Veiled Princess of Love and Prophet' back then as her given name Elizabeth Kemper. Her father was the then-CEO of Commerce Bank.
A newspaper article with a photo of Kemper from the event has gone viral on Twitter.
