(ChurchLeaders) Melissa McCarthy has withdrawn her support from Christian anti-trafficking organization Exodus Cry after claims surfaced that the group is anti-abortion and anti-LGBTQ. Exodus Cry, however, says that the media is spreading misinformation.
“There’s no other way to say it: We blew it,” actress and producer Melissa McCarthy said in an apology on Twitter. “We made a mistake and we backed a charity that, upon proper vetting, stands for everything that we do not. So I want to thank everyone on social media who said, ‘What are you doing? Are you sure you want to back this?’ Because the answer is, ‘No, we do not.’ We have pulled it….Thanks for the help—we really needed it.”
