Joel McHale doesn't find North Carolina's archaic new anti-LGBT law the least bit funny. The comedian, who appeared at the Durham Performing Arts Center in North Carolina on Friday, told the audience that he would donate “every single dime I make tonight” to the city's LGBTQ Center as a way of offering his support. "There was a moment where I wasn’t going to come tonight," McHale told the audience. "What the fuck is wrong with your government? It’s crazy! I know you guys are cool because your city council passed a resolution opposing that stupid fucking bill . ... So it was like, 'Let’s go to that place where they support the destruction of that bill.'" "I am going to donate every single dime I make tonight to the LGBTQ Center — every single dime," he continued. Towleroad notes that the "Community" and "X-Files" star also "made an impromptu LGBTQ t-shirt out of duct tape as a show of support." In recent weeks, businesses, celebrities and politicians have lashed out against HB2, which prohibits cities from passing non-discriminations laws to protect queer people and forces transgender people to use public restrooms that correspond with the gender they were assigned at birth, rather than the gender they currently identify with. PayPal scrapped a planned 400-job expansion in the state and rocker Bruce Springsteen on Friday canceled an upcoming concert in North Carolina. In a statement on his website, the musician wrote in part, “Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them.” Thus far Gov. Pat McCrory (R), who signed the legislation on March 23 , has dismissed the backlash to the law as " political correctness gone amuck. ” Also on HuffPost More: Joel Mchale North Carolina Hb2 Joel Mchale Hb2 Joel Mchale Suggest a correction 152 Comments Close SUBSCRIBE AND FOLLOW Get top stories and blog posts emailed to me each day.
