WATCH: Seth Meyers Won't Be 'Saving the Pizza' Anytime Soon

WATCH: Seth Meyers Won't Be 'Saving the Pizza' Anytime Soon


Last night's episode of Late Night shows that Seth Meyers probably isn't a fan of pizza, or antigay businesses.

Talk-show host Seth Meyers took his trademark tongue-in-cheek approach to tackling the controversy surrounding Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act -- and the business that ignited a social media firestorm by publicly supporting the antigay discriminatory intent of the law, Memories Pizza.

On last night's episode of Late Night, Meyers ran a cheeky segment called "Hold the Sausage," using his signature snarky sense of humor to criticize statements made by Crystal O'Connor (co-owner of the Walkerton, Ind., pizza joint) that her shop wouldn't cater a gay couple's wedding if the opportunity ever arose.

"Seems like an unnecessary comment," said Meyers. "In the first place, to most people pizza isn't a wedding food -- it's a divorce food."

Meyers also criticized the fundraising campaign started by employees of Glenn Beck's streaming network The Blaze to benefit O'Connor and her father, co-owner Kevin, after they decided to temporarily close Memories Pizza in the wake of receiving threats. That campaign ultimately raised nearly a million dollars for the business owners who said they had no problem serving gay customers, but couldn't cater a hypothetical same-sex wedding.

"Seriously? This is the kind of cause people will donate to?" asks Meyers. "You can save rescue dogs, save the rainforest, save the whales. You decide to save the pizza? Are you antigay, or just stoned?"

Watch Meyers dish out these and other funny-but-true RFRA-related statements in the clip below.
