ICYMI: Margot Robbie delivers political statement to Australian government on SNL

Australian actor Margot Robbie has used her hosting stint for the United States’s popular comedy series Saturday Night Live‘s forty-second season premiere opener to deliver a political statement to the Australia government.

Wearing a Say ‘I Do’ Down Under tee, Robbie contributed to the discussion regarding marriage equality that continues to be tempestuous topic between the Liberal/National Coalition Government and the Australian Labor Party, who both went to the last federal election with opposing promises regarding the civil rights issue. The Malcolm Turnbull-led government continues to stand by a (potentially) $175 million plebiscite, despite the Prime Minister’s personal support for marriage equality, whilst the Bill Shorten-led opposition is pushing for a vote in parliament; the latter would most likely result in an amendment to the Marriage Act passing through the lower house.

 

The Say ‘I Do’ Down Under campaign was launched on Saturday, 1 October by British actor Joshua Sasse, whose fiancée, Kylie Minogue, remains one of the LGBTI+ community’s most celebrated and adored icons. Sasse took to Twitter to release his line of tees, posting a photograph of himself with Minogue and the legendary Dolly Parton. He encouraged his followers to spread the word about ‘SAYING I DO DOWN UNDER’.
