    Prejean had created controversy by saying marriage should be reserved for a man and a woman during the interview portion of the Miss USA 2009 pageant.
    More Details Hide Details Pageant Executive Director Keith Lewis claimed that Prejean was fired due to her lack of work ethic and not because of the controversy, a claim Prejean denied. Farrell, who is a Christian, believes that marriage is between a man and a woman but has said "I don't think that I have the right or anybody has a right to tell somebody who they can or can't love. And I think that this is a civil rights issue. And I think that the right thing to do is let the voters decide."
    On June 10, 2009, she became Miss California USA 2009 after Prejean was sacked by Donald Trump.
