Spirit Day Video: “I’m Betty White, but this October 17th, call me Betty Purple … I look great in purple”

GLAAD just went live with this video of TV icon Betty White and the cast of TV Land’s ‘Hot in Cleveland’ voicing support for GLAAD’s annual anti-bullying campaign Spirit Day (10/17), which supports LGBT youth.

“I’m Betty White, but this October 17th, call me Betty Purple,” Betty says in the exclusive Spirit Day video.

“And the whole cast of ‘Hot in Cleveland’ will be joining in on Spirit Day and showing our support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth,” adds her co-star Wendie Malick.

Others going purple for Spirit Day on October 17 in a stand against bullying and in support of LGBT youth include: Ke$ha, Nate Berkus, ‘Revenge’ star Nick Wechsler, out basketball player Jason Collins, ‘Orange is the New Black’ star Laverne Cox, the cast of ‘Degrassi,’ Snooki & JWOWW, and hundreds more. Corporations like Facebook, the NBA, MTV, NBCUniversal, and more are also participating. Full list at

One Remark

  1. Betty is such a cool and wonderful lady. I have loved her for decades.

    Greg, former contestant on Bravo’s Make Me A Super Model, Ronnie Kroell, is currently doing a walk against bullying. He is walking 921 miles from Chicago to the Brooklyn Bridge in New York where Tyler Clementi committed suicide, and donations Ronnie collected are being donated to the Tyler Clementi Foundation. I went to a kick-off party for Ronnie this past Friday and met an incredible (and adorable) young man who is a TERRIFIC representative of gay people.

    Just wanted to alert you in case you might want to feature his walk on your site.
