'They Knew That I Was a Christian': Actress Lost Lead Role for Posting Christian Beliefs on Homosexuality
A young British actress is suing a U.K. theater company after it dismissed her from the lead role in a stage version of the award-winning play, The Color Purple.
According to BBC, 25-year-old Seyi Omooba recently filed suit against the Curve Theater in Leicester and Global Artists in London for breach of contract and religious discrimination.
The Christian actress was cast as the lead role of Celie, but just one day later she was terminated because of a Facebook post she made in 2014 about homosexuality.
In the old Facebook post Omooba said that homosexuality was not right.
"On all my social medias I always post stuff about God, the Bible or Scriptures," Omooba says in a YouTube video.
"They knew that I was a Christian. and they knew my stance on marriage, on my faith, on God, on many different things that are in the Bible," she added.
