Ciara to judgmental Christians, ” You need to calm down!”
CiCi received backlash from Christians for playing a minister marrying a gay couple in Taylor Swift’s latest video ‘You Need To Calm Down.’
Ciara joins Ellen DeGeneres, RuPaul, Katy Perry, Laverne Cox and Billy Porter in the video.
The video is a call to action for Taylor and her fans to support the Equality Act, a piece of legislation which if passed, would prohibit discrimination based on gender and sexual identity. The Equality Act would amend the Civil Rights to include protections for employment, public housing and federal funding, just to name a few of the areas affected.
“Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all our citizens equally,” reads a message that appears at the end of the video “Please sign my petition for Senate support of the Equality Act on Change.org.”
