A pizzeria in Indiana refused to provide pizza for a same-sex wedding, but all hope is not lost, thanks to Scrubs stars Zach Braff and Donald Faison.

Just like the bakery in Northern Ireland that declined to bake the wedding cake for a gay couple, Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana caused a massive controversy when they refused to cater for a same-sex wedding reception.

After the pizza place hit the headlines, two of America’s most popular sitcom alums offered to save the day.

Scrubs actors Braff and Faison are offering to flip some dough for the couple - and anyone else who is interested for that matter.

In wake of the controversy, the proprietors of Memories Pizza claimed they were forced to close their business as they were targeted with threats and harassment.

Soon after, a GoFundMe campaign was launched to support the owners, and raised over €775,000.

Braff and Faison are not the only high profile people to stand up and show solidarity for the LGBT community - singer Cyndi Lauper has also pledged her support.

The musician hosted a fundraiser titled #PizzaForEquality, raising €35,000 for homeless LGBT youths.
