Watch Ellen DeGeneres’ Thoughts on Mississippi’s ‘Religious Freedom Law’, HB 1523

Earlier this week, Mississippi’s governor Phil Bryant signed HB 1523, one of the most discriminatory pieces of anti-LGBT legislation in recent memory, into law. The law gives a blanket protection to those who wish to discriminate against LBGT individuals on the basis of “religious freedom” in a number of instances. 

Ellen DeGeneres, of all people, was not going to be quiet about it and gave an equally rousing and sweet statement about the unfortunate turn of events on her show.

Watch it here and realize this is all happening in 2016 for some reason.
