A statement from Ellen DeGeneres:
I’m so thankful for the freedoms that we have in this country; the freedom of speech, the freedom to vote and the freedom to love who we want.
And I want to say that what’s happening in Uganda makes me incredibly sad. There’s an “Anti-Gay Bill” that’s proposing to jail homosexuals. They are trying to give life sentences to same-sex couples, and the bill even proposes that they jail anyone who fails to report “gay activity” to the police within 24 hours.
This is a horrible violation of human rights and I can’t believe something like this is being discussed in this day and age.
