Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton has called a US beauty pageant contestant “a dumb bitch” over her response to a question about same-sex marriage.
Hilton, best known for his website, www.perezhilton.com, asked Miss California (Carrie Prejean) for her views on same-sex marriage during the Miss USA Pageant at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Sunday.
“I do believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman, no offence to anybody out there,” Prejean replied. “But that’s how I was raised and I believe that it should be between a man and a woman. Thank you.”
Hilton called the response “the worst answer in pageant history”, later blasting the contestant in a video blog on his website.
“She lost not because she doesn’t believe in gay marriage, she lost because she’s a dumb bitch!” he railed.
