Miss California Carrie Prejean will go down in pageant history, not for winning the pageant, but for losing the crown barely months later. Oh, also for being a media fodder instead of a world peace advocate.
Her controversial belief against gay and lesbian marriage in California angered the gay community and supporters right at the pageant Q&A, and their hostility did not let up after she was crowned. Then pictures of her in racy costumes and poses began to surface, and this new controversy brought her dangerously close to possible violations of the Miss California pageant contract.
It took pageant owner Donald Trump's defense of Prejean a month ago for the dust to settle down on the controversial pictures, when Trump dismissed the photos and allowed her to stay. And yet now, a month later, Trump himself gave the word to fire Prejean, according to Fox News.
The reason? "I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California Organization and I gave her the opportunity to do so," Trump said in a press release. "Unfortunately it just doesn’t look like it is going to happen and I offered . . . my full support in making this decision."
