Alan Cumming Slams President Barack Obama

 Alan Cumming isn't too happy with Barack Obama these days. The Scottish actor has been a longtime advocate of the U.S. President, but lately he's found himself quite "frustrated" over Obama's lack of support for gay rights.

"We keep hearing that Obama is an ally, that DADT will end under his watch," Cumming revealed in a blog post, "But what do we actually get? Diddly squat thus far on a federal level and in addition to that some very offensive statements that would have made the Republicans look bad."

"In a time when America is full of hatred of all kinds, but especially hatred towards young gay people, what message is the president sending when he repeatedly goes out of his way to spread the message that the gay population is not worthy of the respect that everyone else is?!"

Cumming recently attended at the Chicago International Film Festival and participated in a Q&A session pertaining to his forthcoming appearance of The Tempest. He also tackled the important issue of bullying.
