Something tells me that Osmond, a professed equality ally with a lesbian daughter, might regret this post:

Sure, they have a shared history. Bryant first sang "Paper Roses;" Osmond made it famous. I get it.

But still, we're talking about Anita Bryant. ANITA gays-recruit-children-so-let-me-campaign-against-them-throughout-the-seventies BRYANT! She isn't just some fellow guest star on a modern version of The Love Boat, with whom Osmond can wax nostalgic about variety shows gone by. This is someone who chose to do actual harm to an entire community of people—people just like Marie Osmond's own daughter.

No Instagram filter can pretty-up Ms. Bryant's record.
