Celebrities for Marriage Equality: Russell Simmons and Sara Silverman

Written by scott on March 31st, 2013

A couple of our supporters chimed in this weekend on marriage equality. First, Hip-Hop mogul Russell Simmons. Chicago Pride reports:

In an appearance on CNN, host Suzanne Malveaux asked Simmons why he’s so passionate about the issue. “I think that the freedom that you take for granted for yourself, you should extend it to everyone else,” Simmons answered… “If we want to be able to get married, then we should extend that right to others. And whatever rights we think people should have, we should fight for them. We think that we should have, we should fight for them for others.”

And comedian Sara Silverman tweeted:

Stop getting married until everybody can. You are joining a restricted country club.

Thanks to Joe.My.God for that tweet.
