For the past couple years, Andy Cohen has hosted the Miss Universe pageant. This year, the Bravo personality is opting out of the gig due to Russia’s anti-gay legislation which makes it unsafe for gays coming to work or visit. Donald Trump’s pageant is taking place in Moscow on November 9. He revealed his decision to his pageant co-host Giuliana Rancic for E! News.
“The law is that anyone under suspicion of homosexuality can be arrested,” Cohen told his Rancic and added that he “didn’t feel right as a gay man stepping foot into Russia.”
As much as I love the annual event and Cohen, I’m glad he’s boycotting the Miss Universe pageant. Bravo (excuse the pun) to Andy for his move. Do you agree with his decision? Sound off below.
