American Idol's final runner up La'Porsha Renae has apologized after backlash for referring to being gay as "lifestyle" during a press conference last Friday.

When asked about the comments by TVLine, La'Porsha said she realized she'd been offensive after saying "I am one of the people who don't really agree with that lifestyle," in response to questions about the controversial HB1523 legislation that was passed in her home state of Mississippi recently. Although she acknowledged having beloved friends who were gay and that she was against any law promoting discrimination, her comments caused many to do a double take.

La'Porsha's correction is just the latest in a growing pile of anti-LGBT legislation-related stories that include statements from Ellen DeGeneres, production boycotts from Hollywood studios and a canceled concert from Bruce Springsteen.
