Ricky Martin Comes Out Against Arizona

At the Billboard Latin Music Awards, yesterday Ricky Martin called out Arizona's new immigration law as racist.
Ricky Martin thinks the new Arizona law is totally loca. The singer told the crowd at last night's Billboard Latin Music Awards that the legislation allowing police to stop anyone they think may be an illegal immigrant simply "makes no sense." This being his first major public appearance since coming out, the "She Bangs" star opted to keep his focus on the issues of inequality as a whole. "This is not in the script," he said at the ceremony in San Juan, Puerto Rico. "You are not alone. We are with you. Put a stop to discrimination. Put a stop to hate. Put a stop to racism…Long live love, long live peace."
