"Though she’s yet to join the ranks of Brad Pitt and Pete Wentz by publicly making a major donation to the campaign to fight California’s Proposition 8, Ellen Degeneres denounced the proposition last night during her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Even Leno — with all his homophobic tendencies — got into the action by spreading a gay-friendly message of tolerance.
Said the late night host: “The economy is falling apart — I don’t care what you do!”
Added newly married Ellen: “I look at the people that are losing their homes and they’re forclosing. And people in Texas who have lost their homes. There are so many people that need money right now. And if you’re raising millions of dollars, give it to those people, please. Because you don’t need to promote hate.”
