Ellen speaks out against Mississippi’s Religious Freedom Bill


Ellen DeGeneres is not taking this Mississippi religious freedom law lying down. She’s using her talk show as a platform to speak about how discriminatory and hateful the state’s HB 1523 Law is, and how used to visit her Aunt Helen there from neighboring Louisianna while growing up. She adds that she doesn’t want LGBT people to lose hope, with some extra flair:

“I was fired for being gay and I know what it feels like. I lost everything. Look at me now. I could buy that governor’s mansion, flip it and make a seven million dollar profit.”

Best monologue ever.
