Rosie O'Donnell weighed in on Indiana's so-called religious freedom law during a SiriusXM town hall this week with gay rights activist Michelangelo Signorile.

A strong backlash against the bill led Republican Governor Mike Pence to ask lawmakers to rewrite the law to include LGBT protections.

“How does one get away with, like the Governor of Indiana, basically saying, 'I am for persecution; I am for bigotry?'” O'Donnell asked.

Signorile, who is pitching his new book It's Not Over: Getting Beyond Tolerance, Defeating Homophobia, and Winning True Equality, replied that such laws were about finding ways for gay rights opponents to “turn themselves into the victims.”

On the subject of the Indiana pizzeria that vowed not to cater a gay wedding, O'Donnell said: “Gays were going to cater their wedding with pizza? Not even lesbians would do that.”

“We might have a potluck. We have bring your own chili. But that's only if financial situations are tough,” she added.
