Proposition 8

There’s no mistaking the joy as celebrities tweet their reactions to California’s same-sex marriage ban being overturned.

The courts have spoken! On Feb. 7, a federal appeals court ruled that Proposition 8, a measure which sought to ban gay marriage in California, is unconstitutional, and now the stars are weighing in about the historic ruling!

“Proposition 8 served no purpose, and had no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California,” the court said.

Almost immediately following the decision, celebrities began taking to Twitter to share their thoughts. Check out what some of Hollywood’s hottest stars are saying:
