Now, here’s a reason for the Internet to break: Today the U.S. Supreme Court made a landmark ruling declaring same-sex marriage legal in ALL 50 states across the U.S.–and, predictably, Twitter and Instagram have pretty much exploded over the exciting news.
Below, how top celebrities are reacting on social media to the historic announcement (so far):
"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In the forming of a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right. The judgement of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed. It is so ordered." THANK YOU #SCOTUS !!! #LoveWins #EqualityMatters #Proud ❤️💛💚💙💜
God bless America. I'm proud today to be part of a people who are adaptable. A country of men and women who can evolve to be the manifestation of our higher selves; Compassionate, loving and tolerant. The diversity of people, and the inclusion of all the differences – gay or straight, man or woman, young or old, right and even wrong, is what makes our values strong and robust. #freedom
