Ellen DeGeneres is not dancing around her disdain for Mississippi’s new discriminatory law.
The daytime talker took a moment during her monologue on Thursday (check your local listings) to address the state’s controversial new religious freedom bill, which allows people to deny those who identity as part of the LGBT community the right to marriage, adoption and foster care services. The legislation also permits employers and landlords to discriminate against those they might hire or house based on their sexual orientation.
“That is the definition of discrimination,” DeGeneres said. “It is also something that the Supreme Court already ruled on when they made marriage a right for everyone.”
