Andy Cohen addressed "the streak of hatred that's becoming all too common in this country" following a particularly violent week in the United States.
The Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host encouraged viewers to join him in fighting hate with love following the deadly shootings at a Kentucky supermarket and a Pittsburgh synagogue, as well as the news that at least 14 pipe bombs were mailed to politicians and other public figures last week. "We cannot be defined by hateful, sick extremists, and we cannot be silent," Andy said in the above clip. "We have to be aware of what's happening around us before it gets any worse, no matter our race or religion or place of birth or political beliefs. We are all stronger than this."
Andy then pledged his commitment to making the world a better place. "But now it's time to stamp this out before it gets any worse. Hatred cannot get any worse in this country," Andy shared. "So please, as we're starting this new week, let's think about how we can put some love and kindness into the world. I'm gonna do the same."
Earlier this month, Andy showed his support for the transgender community after it was reported that the Department of Health and Human Services is looking "to establish a legal definition of sex" that is defined "as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with," according to The New York Times.
