John Legend Considering a Boycott of Louisiana
Super star John Legend is considering boycotting Louisiana and other states that have passed strict anti abortion laws.
Legend says this is a conversation that should be had. He tells reporters:
"Particularly when these studios are hiring people and bringing people to the state and saying, 'Come work with us here in this state,' but if you get pregnant there you're going to be treated like a second-class citizen," he said. "That's a tough conversation to have with your staff. And so I think hopefully the pressure that the studios are putting on will help Georgia and other states see the error of their ways."
Louisiana is one of several states that have approved laws banning an abortion once a heartbeat can be detected. Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi and Ohio have also ok'd similiar bills.
Legend went on to say:
There's no way we can have equality in any other realm if women don't have the ability to make these kinds of decisions on their own without the state getting involved.
Netflix has already announced they are reconsidering doing any more filming in the state of Georgia.
