Jennifer Lawrence says Kim Davis ‘makes me embarrassed to be from Kentucky’

“Kim Davis is the lady who makes me embarrassed to be from Kentucky. Don’t even say her name in this house… all those people holding their crucifixes, which may as well be pitchforks, thinking they’re fighting the good fight. I grew up in Kentucky. I know how they are. I was raised a Republican, but I just can’t imagine supporting a party that doesn’t support women’s basic rights. It’s 2015 and gay people can get married and we think that we’ve come so far, so, yay! But have we? I don’t want to stay quiet about that stuff.”
