Former Miss USA Shanna Moakler is coming to the defense of Miss California Carrie Prejean. Sort of.
While Shanna praises Carrie for her convictions, Shanna disagrees with the pageant contestant’s beliefs – and the way she answered Perez Hilton’s question about gay marriage.
Shanna Moakler took to her MySpace blog to share that Carrie Prejean did not lose the crown because of what she said, but rather how she said it.
“She lost the crown because she wasn’t able to convey compassion for ALL the people that, as MISS USA, she would be representing,” Moakler wrote. “And if YOU like it or not, gays and lesbians make up this country as well. THIS is why we have judges, so they can find the RIGHT woman who obtains these qualities.”
“[I don’t] have any issue with her stating her opinion… I agree with the majority that this IS what makes our country great… freedom of speech. She was asked a question, and she answered it.”
So basically Shanna Moakler and Perez Hilton agree that Miss California Carrie Prejean is not this year’s Miss USA because she does not possess the ability to show compassion for every single member of this country.
I totally agree. I mean, how can Carrie Prejean have the title of ‘Miss USA’ in public when in her head she’s ‘Miss USA minus the gay people’?
