#SupportCarrie - Thank Carrie Underwood for standing up for equality!

After announcing that she supports marriage equality, singer Carrie Underwood has come under fire from some fans.

In an interview with U.K.'s The Independent, Underwood said, "As a married person myself, I don't know what it's like to be told I can't marry somebody I love, and want to marry.
