Miss California stirred up controversy this weekend when she spoke out against same-sex marriage during the Miss U.S.A. pageant Sunday. When asked what she thought about gay marriage by the gossip queen himself, Perez Hilton, the beauty queen responded: “We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.”

Openly-gay Hilton was furious with the response and the two have feuded via the news media ever since.

The answer was shocking for many viewers, mostly for the uneducated aspect of her reasoning. Everyone is pretty aware that we do not live in a country where you can marry whomever you choose. Someone from California, no matter how blonde she is, should be fully aware of this fact. Maybe Miss California was too busy doing crunches and shopping for swimsuits to pay attention during the November elections. You can be sure that she is not going to be welcomed into the Californian gay community any time soon.

Miss Fail-of-a-Lifetime hopped on the news early Monday morning for damage control, but it is clear her mistake cost her the thing she was fighting for in the first place. During an appearance on MSNBC, Perez agreed with a statement she made claiming her answer cost her the crown. He described her as the clear “front-runner” and suggested that he was rooting for her until she bombed his question. Oops.
