Apparently they don’t know the difference between life and acting. The Daily Mail reports they plan to picket Robin William’s funeral because he once portrayed a gay man in The Birdcage. Good movie.
organisers at the global non-profit organisation Planting Peace have launched a fundraiser to counter the church’s plans.
A message from co-founder Aaron Jackson reads: “Robin Williams played many different roles in so many people’s lives, and giving back to others was at the top of that list.
“His appeal crossed generational boundaries. I was personally impacted when I heard of his passing. This is a small gesture to honour his legacy and the difference he made to so many,” he said.
Jackson said that when the WBC announced they were protesting the star’s funeral, “we felt like launching a fundraiser for a charity Robin loved would be the perfect way to honour him and counteract the message of hate and intolerance that the WBC continues to convey”.
The proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit St Jude Children’s Hospital, which Williams supported during his life.
