Celebrities take to Twitter as always, but this time it’s to comment on gay rights in light of the Supreme Court dismissing DOMA’s Proposition 8 supporting gay marriage. President Clinton signed DOMA (The Defense of Marriage Act) in 1996 and it has finally been thrown out! The Supreme Court declares DOMA “unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the 5th amendment”. Equality for all! Take a look at all the celebrities who are celebrating!

If you're gay married in California your gay marriage is now legal. Good. #allmarriageisabitgay

DOMA and Prop 8 should get married.

Remember the old days when #DOMA was around and gay people couldn't get married in California? Crazy right!?

I guess the Prop 8 & DOMA decisions are headlining SCOTUS FEST

All though I most likely will not sleep #DOMA is the only thing on my mind praying that The Supreme Court makes marriage = for all!

In a landmark ruling citing the Fifth Amendment, SCOTUS deemed the DOMA unconstitutional, and refused to take up CA's contentious Prop 8. Jubilation around the country ensued.Click here to read more
