Susan Sarandon

Susan Sarandon spoke at a Bernie Sanders rally in Iowa on Wednesday. She advocated for a higher minimum wage and LGBT rights. In her speech, she called out Hillary Clinton on her changing stance.

“It’s one thing to be for gay rights and gay marriage once everybody else is for it,” Sarandon said. “That’s not difficult.”

After the rally, Sarandon spoke with The Daily Mail to further explain her opposition with Clinton:

“There’s a number of issues where [Hillary] has come around but she very clearly equivocated or was not there in the beginning. She was not, and that’s a matter of record, and yes she has come around, but my point is, it’s great that she came around, but wouldn’t it be great to be a leader instead of a follower, especially if you’re going to hold the highest office in the land?”

Sarandon, whose son is gay, has long been an ally for LGBT people. In 2014, she appeared in a video for HRC, speaking in favor of marriage equality.

Her speech concluded with a tearful introduction of Sanders. Watch below:
