Tig Notaro On The Anti-Gay Pizza Restaurant In Indiana: 'It's Sickening'

Memories Pizza, the Indiana restaurant that said it would refuse to cater gay weddings under the state's controversial religious freedom law, has raised more than $800,000 from supporters who have no problem with the discrimination against LGBT customers. Comedian Tig Notaro is definitely not one of those supporters.

"It's so odd," Notaro said Friday. "When you're denying people services based on who they are, it's like you're removing their homes, food -- it's sickening."

The comedian discussed the controversy surrounding Indiana's law with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and hosts Roy Sekoff and Marc Lamont Hill during the premiere of "The HuffPost Show."

Notaro's new comedy special, "Knock Knock, It's Tig Notaro," premieres April 17 on Showtime.
