BEST-selling supernatural fiction author Stephen King has joined a string of celebrities speaking out on social media against the recently-passed and controversial Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which allows any individual or corporation to cite its religious beliefs as a defence when sued for discrimination.
Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration act is gay discrimination, pure and simple. You can frost a dog turd, but it’s still a dog turd.

Other celebrities speaking out against the law change include: Ashton Kutcher, Dustin Lance Black, Miley Cyrus and Andy Cohen.
