I think it is important to know if she performed her duties diligently or if she pursued activities that ran counter to her paid responsibilities (and contractual obligations) as Miss California. The contract she signed would have traded some of her rights in return for the benefits of being Miss California.

We already know that she breached the terms of her contract - the photos were evidence of that. Her ultimate boss, Trump, gave her a pass on this transgression but I think from an employment law perspective that is certainly treated as a warning from her employer. If she had received a warning and still failed to discharge her duties, then she gets terminated. Its the same for anyone in an "employment at will" jurisdiction.

Without knowing all the facts, it is far too easy to ascribe this to lack of tolerance for her beliefs. It might have been that, yes. Or it might just as easily have been Prejean thinking that her individual rights outshone her signed contractual obligations as Miss California, which she didn't perform as she promised to.
You hit the nail on the head here.

We don't know what the facts of the case are. And yet plenty of people want to pass judgement on her.

I mean seriously folks, she won a contest based on looks. Of what importance does this story really have other than press for Trump?

She definitely misplayed this one.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
