Celebs React To Kirk Cameron’s Anti-Gay Remarks on “Piers Morgan Tonight”

Its been very clear over the past several years, but even more so over the past few weeks, that everyone has the freedom of speech.  However, you must be prepared to defend what you say if you go on the attack.  Recently, Rush Limbaugh learned the price for going on a personal attack when 7 sponsors pulled their funding of his radio show.  Now, Kirk Cameron is feeling the backlash from several celebs, including former co-stars, for comments he made recently on “Piers Morgan Tonight”.

During the sit-down interview, Cameron was asked about his outspoken opposition of gay marriage, to which he replied,

“I think that it’s unnatural. I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”

Shortly after the interview aired, GLAAD Senior Director of Programs Herndon Graddick said,

“Cameron is out of step with a growing majority of Americans … with an increasing number of states recognizing marriage equality, Americans are seeing that marriage is about committed couples who want to make a lifelong promise to take care of and be responsible for each other and that gay and lesbian couples need equal security and legal protections. That’s not ‘redefining’ anything.”

A reply from GLAAD was expected after Cameron’s comments, but I doubt many expected the response from fellow actors, and two former co-stars from Cameron’s TV show “Growing Pains”.  Some were voicing contrary opinions while others specifically mentioned Cameron.

Tracy Gold, Cameron’s TV sister on  “Growing Pains” tweeted,

“I am a strong supporter of the #LGBT Community, and I believe in equal rights for all,”

Jesse Tyler Ferguson from “Modern Family” said,

“It’s a very closed-minded, very homophobic view point.  It’s also surprising coming from someone who was probably brought up in the business among many gay people. It’s just very sad.”

“The only unnatural thing about me being gay is that I had a crush on Kirk Cameron until about 24 hours ago.”

Alan Thicke, Cameron’s TV Dad on “Growing Pains” tweeted,

“I’m getting him some new books. The Old Testament simply can’t be expected to explain everything.”

“I love Kirk but I may have to spank him…’tho not in a gay way!”

Late Night Talk Show Host Craig Ferguson tweeted,

“Rush makes me ashamed to be a middleaged white man and Kirk Cameron makes me ashamed to be a failed actor. We don’t all think like that NoH8.”
