The Insider: Niecy Nash Tapes Mouth for NOH8Tuesday, June 1st, 2010
"I think it's very important to support a cause that fights for people's rights. The image with the tape across the mouth is very powerful because it's representative of people being silenced. You want to give everybody a voice." says Niecy Nash
Niecy and her pro partner Louis van Amstel were joined by such "Dancing" stars as Brooke Burke, Marlee Matlin, Marissa Jaret Winokur and Denise Richards, as well as "American Idol" star Kimberley Locke.
"This is such a powerful message done in an artistic way," says Louis. "It's about equal rights for anybody, for any minority group -- let's stop hating."
