Prejean, a junior at San Diego Christian College, said she was upset by the Hilton's name calling.

"Where is the class? Where is the integrity?" she asked. "Why am I such a bad person for coming out and stating my opinion?"

She said she believes Hilton unjustly docked her score for not thinking the way he does, but said she has no regrets about answering the way in which she did.

"I know that God has me here for a reason," she said.
