Joel McHale did not cancel his appearance in North Carolina this week, as many performers have been doing to protest the North Carolina law, which limits transgender people to only using the public restrooms intended for the gender listed on their birth certificates. However, McHale did use the opportunity to berate the state government in front of a North Carolina crowd.

“What the fuck is wrong with your government? What the fuck is wrong with you?” he asked the crowd in Durham, a North Carolina city where the city council, at least, passed a resolution opposing the bill.

“Good,” he said onstage, “let’s go to the place where they support the destruction of that bill, saying ‘Let’s get on with our lives and stop perpetuating this stupid fucking thing that is now passed.’ It’s crazy.”

Oh, and while McHale did not cancel his performance, he did one better.

“I’m going to donate every single dime I make tonight to the LGBTQ Center of Durham,” he said. “Yea. Every single dime.”

Joel McHale: Good people.
