In an interview with Piers Morgan on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, and a number of celebrities have spoken out against his comments, with Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx branding Cameron as "Kirk Cameron, a**hole of the week" on his Twitter page. The former Growing Pains actor told Piers that he "doesn't support the idea" of same-sex marriage and that "it's unnatural, it's detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."
Cameron's former Growing Pains co-stars have also spoken out against his comments. Alan Thicke took to his own Twitter account to say "I'll address kirk's comments as soon as I recover from rush limbaugh's" before adding "I'm getting him some new books. The Old Testament simply can't be expected to explain everything" and "I love Kirk but I may have to spank him...'tho not in a gay way!" Tracey Gold, who played Kirk's on-screen sister, took a more serious line, saying "I am a strong supporter of the Lgbt Community, and I believe in equal rights for all. Noh8 Love."
