Is The Entertainment Industry Too Aggressive With Their Message Of LGBT Acceptance?
The fight for gay rights and equality for the entire LGBT community is a long-running one that has gotten the attention of people of all backgrounds, social status, religious beliefs and walks of life…but should it also be heavily incorporated into our entertainment industry?
Last night’s 56th Annual Grammy Award show featured a handful of memorable moments that had the masses talking, but the most controversial part of the show was undeniably the marriage ceremony for 35 couples, both same sex and heterosexual. The impromptu nuptials took place as hip-hop new comer Macklemore performed his song “Same Love,” which boasts a message of anti-hate and support for the LGBT community.
The performance and mini-ceremony was met with mixed reviews from viewers who were tuned in, with some applauding the Grammys for shedding even more light on the topic and others expressing that they felt acceptance of the LGBT community was being forced upon those with opposing views just for tuning in to the show.
So what do you think, Bossip fam? Is the entertainment industry as a whole taking things too far by increasingly incorporating LGBT awareness into music, movies and television? Or are they doing exactly what they should be doing?
