Preach, girl!

As you may have heard by now, the Mississippi government just passed a new law that the HRC is calling "The worst Religious Freedom Bill to date."

But to make things even worse, Gov. Phil Bryant and Sen. Jenifer Branning even had the audacity to promote bill HB 1523 saying it "does not limit any constitutionally protected rights or actions" for their people, despite that literally being the definition of discrimination.

Luckily, Ellen DeGeneres isn't about to take hatred like this in this day and age sitting down, so she's speaking out against her former neighbor!

The Louisiana native took a break from the comedy to get uncharacteristically poignant while discussing gay rights in the South — but that's not to say her speech was completely absent of jokes, of course.

Hopefully the rest of Hollywood follows her lead to send a message to the bigoted state!

Ch-ch-check out Ellen's critical take on Mississippi's new law (below)!!!
