Kirk Cameron Bashes Macklemore's "Same Love" Grammys Performance, The Internet Reacts
Kirk Cameron is at it again and this time, the Internet isn't holding back in their response. The former Growing Pains actor has caught flack in the past for pushing his conservative Christian beliefs on family and gay marriage, but he may have just crossed the line. Cameron posted a response on his Facebook page to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' 2014 Grammys performance of "Same Love", where they married 33 gay and straight couples on live television, calling it an "all out assault on the traditional family." And the Twitter community isn't happy about it.
Cameron's behavior isn't necessarily surprising — in 2012 the actor caused a serious uproar when he told Piers Morgan that homosexuality and gay marriage were "destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization." But that definitely doesn't mean that legions of Twitter users are going to let his comments go unnoticed. Cameron's full Facebook post (it's since been removed from the site), which doubled as promotion for his new film Mercy Rule, read:
How did you like the Grammy's all out assault on the traditional family last night? As a husband and father, I am proud to announce the release of my new family movie, MERCY RULE. Last night, the lines were drawn thick and dark. Now more than ever, we must work together to create the world we want for our children. I'm hoping that just as Fireproof restored marriages, MERCY RULE will strengthen families. You told me on Facebook how you wanted to see MERCY RULE, and I heard you. That's why Family Christian stores and I are giving it to you now. Just the way you want it.
He also included a link to the film's trailer and ended the message with, "May God bless you and keep you and I can't wait for you to tell me what you think." Well, people are definitely telling him what they think — just not about Mercy Rule. Here's how Twitter users reacted:
When will you learn, Kirk?
