Celebrities celebrate the end of Prop 8!

In case you haven’t heard by now, Proposition 8 was finally declared to be unconstitutional by California’s 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals, which shouldn’t come as a surprise since the constitution was meant to protect the minority from the majority and not vice versa. It turns out, many people were happy to see an unfair, illegal piece of trash destroyed, so many a famous people jumped onto Twitter to wish it a fond farewell. Read some of the reactions via the Washington Post below:

Ellen DeGeneres: “Today we took another step towards equality. #Prop8 was found unconstitutional again. I couldn’t be happier.”

Kristin Cavallari: “Amazing news about prop 8 being declared unconstitutional!!”

Cory Monteith: “Prop 8 has been ruled unconstitutional! In other news, the Pacific Ocean was discovered to be wet.”

Kelly Osbourne: “Are my ears hearing this corectly? If so my eyes are filling with tears of joy! thank you lord #Prop8IsUnconstitutional!”

Screenwriter Jon Hurtwitz: “I don’t think it’s a coincidence that “Harold & Kumar 3” came out on DVD the same day Prop 8 was overturned. I smell a concept for Part 4.”

Dustin Lance Black: “With our beautiful plaintiffs now. Hugs and cheers as the 9th circuit court of appeals affirmed that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional!”

Chely Wright: I am a gay American and it’s my Constitution too. #NOH8

RuPaul’s “Drag Race”: “Prop 8, sashay away.”

Damon Lindelof: “I try not to get blatantly political on twitter. That being said? UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!”

Jesse Tyler Ferguson: “Historic! #Prop8 is unconstitutional.”

Yay! So good news I guess here: Californians finally figured out that repressing the rights of an entire group of people because they make them feel weird was pretty messed up. Jesus, and it only took them what, two years? Three? Gosh, they learn fast, don’t they?
