We have yet another reason to celebrate Zach Braff and Donald Faison as the best bromance ever: If you’re having an LGBT wedding in Indiana, the erstwhile J.D. and Turk will make pizza for you. The catering offer comes from a Tweet posted by Braff few days ago, referencing an Indiana pizzeria owner’s recent statement that she would refuse to cater LGBT weddings. Why are these two so determined to be the captains of Team Adorable forever? I mean, I'm not mad. Keep it up, guys.
The battle for LGBT rights in Indiana has made headlines in recent weeks due to Indiana governor Mike Pence’s signing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act on March 26. The RFRA was allegedly intended “to prevent laws that substantially burden a person’s free exercise of religion,” but many have argued that the law essentially legalizes discrimination against LGBT people in the state of Indiana. The backlash against the law has been fierce, with entities including Angie’s List, Apple, and the NCAA threatening to withdraw their business from the state. Protests from businesses, celebrities, politicians, and citizens were so intense that, last Thursday, the Indiana legislature moved to amend the law to explicitly state that the RFRA cannot be used to discriminate against anyone.
Crystal O’Connor, co-owner of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana, and supporter of the RFRA, sparked outrage last week when she told ABC57 News, “If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no.” Backlash against the pizzeria was so strong that the restaurant has temporarily closed its doors. (Don’t feel sorry for them, though – they’ve since received more than $850 thousand dollars from like-minded supporters.) And that’s where Braff and Faison come in. On the 3rd, Braff tweeted a picture of himself with Faison, offering to make pizza for people burned by Memories Pizza’s refusal to serve LGBT customers.
My main question (other than “How are you so awesome?”) is this: Will they be delivering the pizza with a boat? Please tell me there will be a boat. Also, will you also sing "Guy Love" at these weddings? Because that would be EPIC.
