Miss Universe Org. Declares War Over Anti-Gay Ad

5/5/2009 3:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Miss Universe Organization just told us they've fired off a cease and desist letter to the National Organization for Marriage -- after NOM used footage from the Miss USA 2009 pageant in an anti-gay marriage commercial.

The commercial -- which is currently still playing on NOM's website -- uses Carrie Prejean's pageant response to the gay marriage question as a selling point for the ad.

This doesn't mean the MUO is taking sides on the issue -- just saying NOM can't use the copyrighted material to promote their agenda.

Good for her. She stood up for what she grew up with, for her moral values. She will be rewarded, in heaven, God will reward her forever.

I disagree with her views on Gay Marriage, but taking a short excerpt of a news worthy event specifically to further public comment seems absolutely to be fair use.

We here at the Clinton News Network, detest gay bashing.... it's in my contract. I must say though, that hot babe from Calif makes me consider switching tracks!

Looks like the "traditonal " Miss California should have kept her trap shut or at least been more diplomatic toward how she felt about the gay marriage issue. An entertainment web site just posted some non traditional photos of her posing in probably some non traditonal ways. Hippocritic b i a t c h! Wonder what her all American family thinks of her now. Think she should be stripped of her state tilte. There are a lot better candidates for the job.

The problem with people like Prejean is that their beliefs are stopping others from having the same equalities. Of course the soon to be Miss CA is to dumb to see that point. Why should certain religious groups opinions be more important than the rights of people who don't think like them?

Has anybody ever considered that the management and ownership (Donald Trump) of the Miss Universe Pageant purposely put that questin out there during the pageant just ot get publicity?

"This doesn't mean the MUO is taking sides on the issue --"
Yeah, that's believable.
It's very clear what side they're on.

Prejean is a dumb whore!    

She's nothing but a lying whore! She lied when she said she did
not pose nude or partially nude. Yep---a Christian lying hypocritical whore.
If you're gonna quote Donald Frump, errr Trump, from this morning--
you should also mention that he said there was no way Ms Whore Cali
could've won! They went and counted all the score cards--and she LOST!!

gays are using marriage to push their agenda's. If it was really about love they would be happy with civil unions. THEY JUST WANT TO SHOVE GAYNESS DOWN EVERYONES THROATS!! If you want to be a pervert, fine, leave marriage out of it.

Sure, like Donald Trump would be honest about it.
You can take your childish insults directed towards Carrie and shove them up your ass, too.

The pictures are fine. Sorry, but there's no nudity. These are poses you'd see in a JC Penny's ad.

Why is someone anti-gay if they don't believe in gay marriage?

The President DID say the same thing Carrie said during the campaign. Google videos for Obama Prejean.
