Miss California Carrie Prejean will keep her crown

Posted on

Donald Trump announced today that Carrie Prejean will keep her crown as Miss California despite the controversy surrounding her views on same-sex marriage and the semi-nude photos of her that surfaced on the Internet. “We are in the 21st century,” Trump, who owns the pageant, said of the photos at a New York press conference today, with Prejean sitting next to him. “We have determined that the pictures taken were fine.” As for the anti-same-sex-marriage answer she gave during the nationally-televised Miss USA pageant last month, Trump said, “She gave a very honest answer when asked a tough question.”
