Ellen speaks out on anti-gay law in US

Ellen DeGeneres uses a little humour and honesty to address discriminatory laws in Mississippi which will not punish individuals, businesses or organisations that refuse to provide services or fire or refuse to employ LGBT people on the basis of religious belief.

“It’s the very definition of discrimination. It’s also something that the Supreme Court already ruled on when they made marriage a right for everyone, everyone,” he said.

“They’re Supreme. I mean, that’s the best you can get. Like the Nacho Supreme from Taco Bell.

“If you’re in Mississippi or North Carolina or anywhere and you’re saddened by the fact that people are judging you based on who you love, don’t lose hope. I was fired for being gay, and I know what it feels like. I lost everything. But look at me now.”
