Shame on Kirby?
Kirby Heyborne is kind of an LDS pop culture celebrity if there is one. He is known for his roles in several low budget yet somehow popular "LDS" based movies such as the "R.M." and "The Singles Ward" series, and is also gaining some ground as musician (if you call what he does music). There was one acting role (in Saints and Soldiers) where he smoked cigarettes. After talking with the producer of Saints and Soldiers I became aware that they were fake "fags" so I guess we can let that slide (please note the sarcasm there). However, it appears as if Kirby has made a mistake that has finally upset some of his fans. Correct me if I am wrong but I thought we were to avoid the appearance of evil, not promote it.
Kirby must have missed that Sunday School lesson because he went and decided to do a beer commercial. That's right. There are some however that feel his actions are okay because he never drinks the beer and "hey, it's a job". There has even been the suggestion that he is reaching out in a missionary type fashion. Put the crazy talk away people! This is what happens when the natural man moves to Hollywood. Trust me; I've been there and not done that. The way things look from my Rameumptom, Kirby's temple recommend should probably be in question.
