    John Legend is a two-faced bigot. He continues to work with homophobic Buju Banton, who recorded so many songs advocating the murder of gay people. Banton just got out of jail for cocaine trafficking. Sure, he HAD to do his “i’m sorry gays” tour, but then he took it all back. Legend and Chrissy only stand up for gays when its easy, but never when it’s hard. F them both.
