Melissa Reeves and Chick fillet? What does that mean?

And if she's upset abt gay characters is she also upset that her character is best buds with the character who tried to drive her mom crazy?
Chic-fil-A gives millions in donations to political organizations which oppose LGBT rights. Including ones that are publicly listed as hate groups. They donated directly to hate groups whose lies are responsible for a bill being introduced in Uganda to impose a fucking death sentence for homosexual behavior.

Human rights advocates in Uganda say the visit by the three Americans helped set in motion what could be a very dangerous cycle. Gay Ugandans already describe a world of beatings, blackmail, death threats like Die Sodomite! scrawled on their homes, constant harassment and even so-called correctional rape.

Now we really have to go undercover, said Stosh Mugisha, a gay rights activist who said she was pinned down in a guava orchard and raped by a farmhand who wanted to cure her of her attraction to girls. She said that she was impregnated and infected with H.I.V.

There was a boycott of Chick-fil-A launched by same-sex marriage activists, and MR tweeted a picture of herself showing support for Chick-fil-A by eating there.

Which is sad, but I hope no one is starting an unfounded rumor. I too would like "proof". Anyone know how old MR is? (Totally off topic).
It's unfounded. There are a lot of assumptions about how she feels about gay people, and while those assumptions aren't exactly baseless there's more proof to them not being true than anything. There were several gay people in the industry who spoke out in support of her when all of that was going down. These were people she worked with everyday and had known for years. While she definitely had a pretty huge lapse of judgment and then acted pretty ridiculously OTT afterwards, she's happily working on a show featuring gay characters, she has shared appropriate scenes with them, and she has gay bosses who probably wouldn't have her working so much if she was as awful as has been rumored,
