Will The Walking Dead Follow Disney’s Lead & Walk Right Out Of Georgia Over Anti-Gay Bill?? See AMC’s Strongly Worded Statement!
Look at the flowers, Georgia’s tax revenue.
As you may have heard, Gov. Nathan Deal is currently looking over a religious liberty bill that would make it legal for businesses to deny services to same-sex couples, just like Indiana did back in 2015.
But if the biggest movie studio in the world’s warnings weren’t enough to convince Georgia to stay on the right side of history, maybe the most acclaimed TV network’s will be!
AMC issued a statement Wednesday condemning the bill, and while they didn’t say they would move The Walking Dead out of Atlanta, they did urge Deal to do what’s right, saying:
“As a company, AMC Networks believes that discrimination of any kind is reprehensible. We applaud Governor Deal’s leadership in resisting a previous version of this divisive legislation and urge him to reject the current version as well.”
If The Walking Dead is trying to teach you about morals, you know something is up.
Plus, the hit zombie series has featured its fair share of LGBT characters in its run — like Aaron, Tara, Denise, Eric, Alisha, and Jesus — so it’s nice to know they’re just as supportive behind the scenes as well!
Do U think Disney, Marvel, and AMC’s threats will protect our Southern gays??
