Miss Oklahoma Morgan Elizabeth Woolard finished first runner-up to winner Rima Fakih of Michigan, and conspiracy theorists are grumbling that her support of SB 1070 may have cost her the crown in a repeat of last year’s Carrie Prejean controversy.

When “The Office” star Oscar Nunez posed Miss Oklahoma a question about where she stood on Arizona’s SB 1070 Sunday night, the crowd erupted in boos over the intrusion of politics, Fox News reported.

“I’m a huge believer in states’ rights. I think that’s what’s so wonderful about America,” Woolard answered of the law which requires state police to stop and question possible undocumented immigrants. “So I think it’s perfectly fine for Arizona to create that law.”

Woolard added that she is against racial profiling.
