Actress AnnaLynne McCord stood for her discriminated gay friends


The star of Nip/Tuck and 90210 took to social media to call out Southwest Airlines as they discriminated against a same-sex family. ‘Dear Southwest Airlines, Have you ever felt bullied? Have you ever been picked on? Have you ever been rejected?’ she begins her letter. She posted her full letter as well as a picture of the family to her accounts in different social networks to put a shame to the airline workers that denied a family boarding privilege to a same-sex couple and their kids saying they were ‘not a real family’. She knows this family personally and has been a long-term friend of their. She discusses the daughters in her letter, writing: ‘It was their first flight ever and they were so excited to join their Daddies on a family trip. Only your employees made it clear that these beautiful little girls and their fathers were not in fact “family.”‘ ‘Love is what these wonderful little girls have for their Dads. Love does not separate, it unites,’ she continues. ‘So, I would just like to ask you ‘why’? Why would your company representatives (the desk agents boarding the plane on behalf of your corporation) believe that it is okay to reject these little girls’ love for their fathers, making them feel that they are not good enough? That their family should be left out? Is that not a form of bullying? Is that not a form of hate? I certainly wouldn’t call it love,’ she wrote, adding at the end that her heart is aching for her friends.
