Rob Reiner Leads Boycott Of North Carolina Over Hate Bill

Walking Dead may walk out on Georgia, too.

So you thought after the Supreme Court the whole gay rights argument was over, huh?

It's not looking good for states who fiddle with discriminatory legislation. You'd think certain governors would have learned from Indiana's example. NBC:

Famed director Rob Reiner said he won't produce movies in North Carolina until it repeals a new law banning cities from enacting their own anti-discrimination protections — legislation widely seen as rolling back LGBT rights.

And while Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has until May 3 to sign or veto his state's hate bill, the reaction from dozens of major corporations has been swift and overwhelming. Fusion is keeping a running list of companies like AMC, which broadcasts The Walking Dead, who said "discrimination of any kind is reprehensible" and called on the governor to reject the bill.

Listen up bigots. You may not want to taste the rainbow. But remember what Voltaire said, "When it is a question of money, everybody is of the same religion."
