Wanda Sykes on the Tonight ShowBY JANE EISNER

Actor and comedian Wanda Sykes was a guest on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno earlier this week, where she spoke out about her involvement with the Human Rights Campaign, and her concern for the LGBT community during the upcoming Sochi Olympics.

“It’s criminal what they’re doing to the LGBT community in Russia,” Sykes said on the show. She then went on to list several reasons why she wouldn’t go to Russia, while adding, “What I will do is wear a t-shirt to support them. Human Rights Campaign has a [shirt] out and the proceeds go to help them.” She told Leno, “And I brought you one too so if they ask you to go, you can say ‘No, I’m going to wear a t-shirt.’”
