Way to go! Country star Kellie Pickler, 29, is speaking out against the incredibly awful law North Carolina passed that’s nothing but a giant piece of discrimination against transgender men and women. The Tar Heel state native thinks it’s incredibly wrong and isn’t afraid to speak out against it, and she’s let HollywoodLife.com know EXCLUSIVELY how she feels about it.
“We’re all humans. We deserve to be treated with respect. Everyone does. Well what are they doing, lifting up skirts before you go in to check and see?” the country cutie reveals to HollywoodLife.com in an EXCLUSIVE new podcast interview. The North Carolina native clearly hates that her home state has passed a law requiring people to use public restrooms based on the gender on their birth certificate, with is such direct discrimination towards the transgender community.
“You go to the bathroom to use the restroom, what does it matter? I don’t understand,” Kellie told us, adding “I think it’s important to stand up for what you feel convicted about. Stand up for what you believe in.” We’re so proud of “Little Bit Gypsy” singer speaking out on this important issue! Stream Kellie’s music, completely unlimited and ad-free, RIGHT HERE.
“It’s just so sad that you think, I mean it’s 2016. Regardless of what year it is, it’s like where do we draw the line and say one person deserves this and this other person doesn’t. I don’t understand that,” the former American Idol contestant shared. We couldn’t agree more!
“There’s right and there’s wrong and we all know the difference and everybody deserves to be treated with respect. And we go to the restroom to use the bathroom, what’s the big deal? For what it’s worth, it doesn’t bother me. You can come use my bathroom anytime you want.” Aww, what a sweetheart Kellie is!
