Many people mock Twitter usage (“I don’t care what you ate for lunch or your opinions on dating.”) but Twitter has become a fabulous way to get on-the-second critical news and to delve into the psyches of our favorite celebs with their incredibly personal, stream-of-conscious wonderings.
Yesterday, while waiting for Judge Walker’s final decision (he declared Prop 8 unconstitutional), millions of people tweeted that they could not stop hitting the refresh button on their Twitter feed. We were amongst those millions. Joining the voice of the enraged masses were a bunch of celebs who immediately vocalized their joy via Twitter when they heard the final verdict.
It was such an amazing day for many around the world and Judge Walker’s declaration was a huge step in gay and civil rights. Reactions were overwhelming joyous. Here are some of the celebrity reactions to Judge Walker’s decision to declare Proposition 8 (the proposition that tried to make homosexual marriage illegal) unconstitutional.
Paris Hilton: “What a huge historical day for equal rights in this country! They finally overturned Prop 8! There shouldn’t be a law on true love. :)”
Kim Kardashian: ”Prop 8 was struck down! This news is amazing!!!! Its about time! Congrats to everyone!”
Shanna Moakler: ”Tonight we celebrate! EQUALITY and LOVE for all!”
Ricky Martin: ”YEAHHHHH!!!!! #prop8unconstitutional Moving Forward!!!!!!!!”
Adam Lambert: ”We’re gonna throw glitter on this barn tonight!!!”
Lance Bass: ”Congrats on the overturning of Prop 8!!!!”
Milla Jovovich: ”Yay! Finally ppl r being treated equally! And CA is cool again!”
Rose McGowan: “Yay! No more Prop H8! I wanna be a flower girl in a wedding asap!”
Olivia Munn: “Prop 8 Overturned!!! Equal rights for everyone! Nice to be out of the 1950s..”
Elizabeth Banks: “Go Judge Walker. I can’t wait to go to some seriously awesome weddings.”
We can’t either. We were in San Francisco when gay marriage was finally legalized and we saw hundreds of beautiful weddings. Congratulations to all who fought and won and to all those getting hitched!
