The Supreme Court ruled on Friday to end same-sex marriage bans nationwide, and now celebrities are reacting to the landmark decision. Before the ruling, gay and lesbian couples were only allowed to get married in 36 states and the District of Columbia. Now, based on the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling, same-sex couples will be allowed to wed in all 50 states.
Shortly after the Supreme Court’s decision was announced, the Twitter hashtags “#LoveWins” and “#SCOTUSMarriage” started to trend, and many people, including celebrities, happily tweeted about the historic victory.
