<p>[See <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2015/09/15/hunger-games-…; for more.] Hunger Games star Wes Bentley lashed out at Arkansas, Monday, deriding the &ldquo;bigotry&rdquo; and &quot;hate&quot; coming out of his home state after the governor signed a religious freedom law earlier this year. Appearing on Larry King Now, the star of such &ldquo;classics&rdquo; as Ghost Rider spewed, &ldquo;It&#39;s a shame that I have to feel embarrassed to say I&#39;m from Arkansas now because something so full of hate is coming from the place of my home.&rdquo;&nbsp; Bentley admitted he hadn&rsquo;t been back to Arkansas for 20 years, but said of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, &ldquo;I can&#39;t imagine this is constitutional. I don&#39;t think institutionalized bigotry is constitutional.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p>
