Will Smith and Jay-Z have spoken up and lend their support to President Obama and his stance on same sex marriage. While both men are married (to women), they are unified in their opinion that people should have the right to marry who they want to.
At a recent press conference Will Smith told reporters,
“If anybody can find someone to love them and to help them through this difficult thing that we call life, I support that in any shape or form.”
and Jay Z tells CNN,
“I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. It’s no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple…I think it’s the right thing to do, so whether it costs him votes or not – again, it’s not about votes. It’s about people. It’s the right thing to do as a human being.”
