Celebrities Tweet Support for Marriage Equality as DOMA Goes Down

Shay Mitchell's NoH8 Campaign Shoot

“Pretty Little Liars'”Shay Mitchell’s NoH8 Campaign Shoot

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, DOMA, and Prop 8 as unconstitutional, some of our favorite celebrities and public figures took to Twitter to voice their support for marriage equality. In honor of the Supreme Court’s decision, I’ve decided to round up what tweets I’ve come across to throw a makeshift Twitter party here on Rickey.org! I’ll continue to add to the list of supporters as I come across these inspiring messages.

You're f*ing kidding me, right? Bill Clinton, who signed DOMA into law; Hillary, who stood by her man and watched him do it; and Obama, who refused to repeal it -- even though they all supposedly (eventually) embraced marriage equality? It pains me the cynical lengths politicians will go to take credit for something they actually fought against. Well, good show, I guess. Good luck in 2016, Hills.

I smiled when Carrie Preston said she wanted to renew her vows with Michael Emerson to celebrate with all their friends that can now get married.

*scrolls down* Yay! Yay! Eww, it's that charlatan Deepak Chopra. Thanks, but no thanks. I think you should post the other side too. You know, equal treatment for bigots.

@Quinntes amen!  Obama had total control for two years and didn't repeal.  DOMA only existed because Bill Clinton signed it.  Even better, if Democrats Jerry Brown or Kamala Harris had DONE THEIR JOBS as CA Governor or Secretaries of State and appealed Prop 8, the Supreme Court would've been forced to decide the issue itself for the whole nation instead of deciding the proponents of Prop 8 had no legal standing to appeal, leaving the initial lower court ruling intact and impacting Californians only.  Democrats want the political credit, won't accept any blame, won't take any real risks.  Shameless. These decisions are footnotes at best.
