You can add Joel McHale to the long list of celebrities and businesses who are speaking out against North Carolina’s new anti-LGBT law.
While Bruce Springsteen recently cancelled his upcoming North Carolina show in protest of HB 2, McHale went the opposite route by deciding to perform — and to donate “every single dime” he made from his Durham show to the city’s local LGBT organization.
The comedian performed his set in a homemade LGBTQ T-shirt and took the opportunity to criticize the law, which he called “f*cking crazy.”
“Joel is vehemently opposed to HB2 and knows there are many in Durham (which recently passed a measure condemning the law) that share the feeling,” McHale’s rep said in a statement to PEOPLE Magazine. “He felt this was a good way to raise awareness and much needed funds for a local center that is on the front line of this important cause.”
