The controversial Miss California Carrie Prejean might lose her runner-up crown for violation of several clauses of her Miss USA pageant contract by working with a national group opposed to gay marriage and posing semi-nude (photos here) when she was younger.
The 21 year-old signed a 12-page contract, which contained clauses that say the participants have to behave “in accordance with the highest ethical and moral standards” and prohibits them from being photographed in a state of total or partial nudity.
Surprisingly Carrie is more concerned with a “gossip site conspiracy” to mock her and degrade her image than actually losing her crown. Carrie released the following statement regarding her semi-nude photos:
“I am a Christian, and I am a model. Models pose for pictures, including lingerie and swimwear photos. Recently, photos taken of me as a teenager have been released surreptitiously to a tabloid Web site that openly mocks me for my Christian faith. I am not perfect, and I will never claim to be. But these attacks on me and others who speak in defense of traditional marriage are intolerant and offensive. While we may not agree on every issue, we should show respect for others’ opinions and not try to silence them through vicious and mean-spirited attacks.”
What do you think?? Should Carrie Prejean lose her crown?? I seriously like this girl because she has the courage to speak her mind and stand up for her beliefs but if she really violated the contract then bye-bye crown!
