Broadway Star Audra McDonald Goes Off on Indiana Governor Over Anti-LGBT Law

”Maybe I should fire my gay band members just to be on the safe side,“ McDonald tweets indignantly

The brushback against an Indiana law that critics and celebrities argue will allow businesses to discriminate against LGBT customers continued Thursday as Broadway star Broadway star Audra McDonald went on a Twitter tirade against Governor Mike Pence.

On Thursday, Indiana passed a religious freedom bill that offers protections to individuals and businesses. Critics say critics say the bill is a license for businesses to discriminate against LGBT customers based on religious objections.

“This bill is not about discrimination,” Pence said. “If I thought it legalized discrimination I would have vetoed it.”

As TheWrap reported, Hollywood is up in arms over the law: “You’re an asshole @govpenceIN,” Miley Cyrus posted on Instagram. “A sad day for all in #INDIANA,” Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black tweeted.

McDonald, whose band has gay members, asked Pence what they are supposed to do upon entering Indiana for a performance.

McDonald then previewed who she’ll be supporting in the 2016 campaign.

The controversy over the law will surely impact Governor Pence, who’s rumored to be a presidential candidate.
