Oscar-winning producer and director Steven Spielberg announced Monday that he is stepping down from his position as an advisory board member of the Boy Scouts of America.

 

“The last few years in scouting have deeply saddened me to see the Boy Scouts of America actively and publicly participating in discrimination. It’s a real shame,” Spielberg said from a prepared statement.

“I thought the Boy Scouts stood for equal opportunity and I have consistently spoken out publicly and privately against intolerance and discrimination based on ethnic, religious, racial and sexual orientation.”

Spielberg did not specifically name which “intolerance and discrimination” he was referring to. In June, the Supreme Court ruled that the Boys Scouts’ national policy banning gay members and leaders is constitutional and would be allowed to continue.
