From Lady GaGa to Ben Affleck, celebrities take to Twitter to react to the historic Supreme Court's decision in striking down the Defense of Marriage Act by a 5-4 vote while dismissing Proposition 8 for lack of jurisdiction. Supporters of gay marriage rejoiced upon hearing the news. And many stars, who have been following this case for months, react. Here's some of their tweets:
Let's go DOMA. Supreme Court lets make history & stand for MARRIAGE EQUALITY! #GetItDoneThisWeek #TheWhole WorldIsWatching
I guess the Prop 8 & DOMA decisions are headlining SCOTUS FEST
In 1996, the US enacted DOMA, and Cartoon Network premiered Dexter's Laboratory. The wrong one is still alive.
Surprise benefit of gay marriage to me?? Thousands of weddings where they play "Wind Beneath My Wings"!
