loser runner-up La’Porsha Renee found herself in hot water after sharing her views on Mississippi’s new anti-LGBT law, which allows business owners to deny LGBT citizens services based on the idea of “religious liberty.”
“This is how I feel about the LGBT community: They are people just like us. They’re not animals as someone stated before. They’re people with feelings. Although all of us may not agree with that particular lifestyle for religious reasons, whatever the reason is, you still treat each other with respect. Everybody is a human being. We should be able to coexist with one another.”
“I am one of the people who don’t really agree with that lifestyle. I wasn’t brought up that way. It wasn’t how I was raised. But I do have a lot of friends and a lot of people that I love dearly who are gay and homosexual and they’re such sweet, nice people. We should just respect each other’s differences and opinions and move on.”
Agree with that “lifestyle?” Okay, girl.
Needless to say, one quick glance through La’Porsha’s mentions and you can see that people are letting her have it.
