Mike Huckabee: 'Militant gay community' pressured corporations to boycott Indiana, Arkansas

Appearing on CNN on Saturday, Mike Huckabee blasted the "militant gay community" and "hypocritical" corporations that pressured Arkansas and Indiana to revise their religious freedom laws.

"The reason that those corporations put the pressure on Indiana and Arkansas was because the militant gay community put the pressure on them," Huckabee said. "I found it a little hypocritical when you have companies…making millions, if not billions of dollars, in cultures and countries where human rights are really an issue."

Huckabee called out Apple and Walmart specifically, both of which protested the language in initial versions of religious freedom laws that opponents said allowed for discrimination against the LGBT community. Watch Huckabee's full take, in the clip, below. —Sarah Eberspacher
