Miss California, "You're Fired!"

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It's official: Controversial Miss California Carrie Prejean has heard the words "you're fired" from pageant boss Donald Trump.
Trump issued a statement Wednesday saying he sacked Prejean for failing to honor her commitments as Miss California USA.
Pageant officials say Tami Farrell, the first runner-up to Prejean in the Miss California USA competition, will take over those responsibilities.
Prejean created controversy during the Miss USA competition, where she was first runner-up, when she answered a judge's question about gay marriage by saying marriage should be reserved for men and women.

    Dont forget voice if it wasn't for man and woman you wouldn't be here, I'm tired of all the excuses what the government says, I go back to basics which is MAN AND WOMAN not man &man or woman&woman to keep gods people going not science.

    They say she did not fulfill her contractual responsibilities for being Miss California. Yet, the only engagement I read about, (on MSNBC.COM), that she declined to do was the shoot for Playboy. What are all those other events that she ignored? I have to agree with Sandy; she was fired for her personal opinion that marriage is between a man and a woman.

    Sandy, You missed my point. I don't believe that she WAS fired for opinion. Merely for not showing up for scheduled events. I believe that one of the fundamentals of this wonderful country is freedom of speech. Of course she has the right to believe whatever she wants. I was upset by the comments here that automatically blame "liberals" for anything and everything. I really don't understand how "conservatives" who want smaller government can think it is ok for the government to decide who can fall in love and marry. As long as they are consenting adults, it is no ones business.

    Voice i'm only voicing my opinion and I don't have a problem but when someone does voice their opinion like she did, they had no right to attack her like they did she never said she hated them,If they cant speak their owm mind there shouldnt even be a pageant,the government and people with money will always call the shots.Plus she does have a brain for she spoke for what she believed and not what she was programed to say.....

    I agree about skipping the pageants. Women are more than artwork to be admired for their looks! Pageants are shallow and make it even harder to raise daughters who care about what is in their heads (brains) not just what is on top (hair). I translated for Sandy, Pam and the other anonymous.

    It is time time to skip the pageants. It is becoming a show that it is all about politics.

    I am sure the liberals are to blame after all, they are to blame for everything....The war in Iraq, the economy, that bad haircut you got. But, maybe Donald Trump is a smart enough person to realize when someone isn't doing their job. She was skipping things she was supposed to be doing for the pageant so she could go to anti-gay rallies. By the way, what is the problem with someone being gay? No one comes into your bedroom and tells you which of the goats to have sex with. Whatever happened to "LIVE AND LET LIVE"?

    I agree the gays community got to him for Trump to change his mind, I really beleive in the U.S.A. we should have our own beliefs for she did'nt talk bad about the gays only what she beives in her own life, so everyone be wary for you could be next on losing your job for having a differnce in opinion.

    What A FARCE this is! I m sure donald was feeling the heat from the GAY community and buckled under pressure..It's ashame we cant all have our own personal opinions, without it putting a job in jeapordy.. Shame on DONALD! not everyone thinks Gays need to be married ...But let em do the civil unions..and keep it out of our faces.

    Trump must have been pressured by the liberal gays to sack her. She is a great spokesperson on family rights and marriage.
