LGBT Celebrities' React To Anti-Gay Religious Freedom Law

"Cenk Uygur (http://www.twitter.com/cenkuygur) host of The Young Turks discusses reactions from LGBT celebrities' to an Indiana law that would allow businesses to refuse service to homosexuals and others for purely religious reasons.

Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed a new law on the books, the Religions Freedom Law, that would allow business owners to deny service or to block access to the business on anyone so long as it is based on religious reasons. Obviously many saw this as a bad move and a lot of LGBT people in the public eye had a thing or two to say about it. Everyone from Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, to actor George Takei to Charles Barkley, the former NBA star, had very harsh criticism for the law. The twitter-sphere was buzzing with activity condemning the new law."
