The bill is now on the desk of the Governor of Georgia waiting for his signature to make it official.
However, more than three dozen Hollywood actors and directors have signed their names to an open letter threatening to cease all film productions in Georgia if the governor signs the new law which they say discriminates against LGBT groups.
Among the celebrities who added their name to the open letter were:
- Kristen Chenoweth;
- Anne Hathaway;
- Seth MacFarlane;
- Julianne Moore;
- Ryan Murphy;
- Rob Reiner;
- Aaron Sorkin;
- Gus Van Sant; and
- Bob and Harvey Weinstein.
The Governor has until May 3rd to decide whether to sign the bill or not.
Georgia is where Walking Dead is being shot.
