Ellen speaks out on NC’s HB2, Mississippi’s religious freedom law


BURBANK, Calif. (WNCN) – Ellen DeGeneres is speaking out against North Carolina’s HB2 law and Mississippi’s religious freedom law.

The popular television host discussed the measures in a pre-taped monologue.

“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,” DeGeneres said.

DeGeneres even said she was once fired for being gay.

“I know what it feels like. I lost everything. But look at me now,” she said.

You can catch DeGeneres full monologue Thursday at 3 p.m. on CBS North Carolina.
