Stephen Colbert sends strong 'message of love' to North Carolina and their anti-LGBT law

You may remeber earlier this month Bruce Springsteen cancelled his North Carolina concert dates in protest for the anti-lgbt law 'House Bill 2' restricting public toilets which members of the transgender community can use.
