On the heels of their big win at the Grammy’s last week, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have joined USA Network’s Characters Unite program with a PSA combatting discrimination.
The PSA, which will begin airing in February, encourages viewers to help stop hate and all forms aof discrimination by saying they won’t “stand for it” anymore.
“We intended ‘Same Love’ to help spread a message of love, tolerance and acceptance and we are proud to align ourselves with the Characters Unite movement which shares the same goal,” Macklemore and Ryan Lewish told the USA Network about their involvement. “Through the new Characters Unite PSA, we hope to inspire even more people to take part in such an important cause.”
Watch the PSA below and let us know in the comments what you’re not standing for this February.
