Comedian Margaret Cho has weighed in on the controversy surrounding Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis.

Davis served five days in jail for refusing to comply with the Supreme Court's summer ruling striking down gay marriage bans in all 50 states. Davis has said that issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples would violate her conscience.

“She's so gross,” Cho said of Davis in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

“I don't understand – she acts like she's some kind of freedom fighter, as if she deserves some sort of accolade for not upholding the constitution and breaking the law,” Cho said.

“It's really insulting to the heroic people who have gone to prison for their beliefs,” she said of the welcome she received from supporters – including Republican presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz – upon her release from jail.

Cho has vowed to marry a gay couple at every stop of her upcoming The PsyCHO Tour, which kicks off on Thursday.
