Social media buzzing about #sb1062

GOODYEAR, AZ (CBS5) -

The controversial "free exercise of religion" bill, known as SB 1062, is creating quite the debate in Arizona. But it's also creating quite the buzz on social media and in late night comedy.

"The Arizona Legislature passed a bill that would allow business owners asserting their religious beliefs to deny services to gay customers," said Seth Meyers, in his opening monologue for his new late night show. 

"Some business owners have already put up signs that say: 'Nice shirt, nice shoes, no service'," he continued.

On social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, discussion on the bill is trending. Many are posting using the hashtag: #sb1062. People are also posting doctored photographs of Arizona's welcome signs alongside highways mocking fun of the bill and those that support it.

Though many of the tweets and messages were against SB 1062, some were in favor.

"Free to live and work according to your faith," read one tweet.

"Stand up for religious freedom. Support SB 1062," it continued.
