In a landmark decision, the Supreme Court ruled Friday that states cannot ban same-sex marriage. And the majority of Hollywood was rapturous.
"Love won. #MarriageEquality," DeGeneres tweeted to her nearly 45 million followers.
Takei, the actor and activist, was heartfelt in his message to his followers: "My eyes shine with tears as marriage equality is ruled the law of the land. What a pride weekend it shall be!" And then he soon got more Takei-esque, posting a cartoon of a person in front of a computer being pelted by a rainbow, the symbol of gay pride, coming through the screen.
Even the "Game of Thrones" Twitter account got in on the celebrating with a tweet that read: "Be proud. #equality #SCOTUSMarriage"
The entertainment industry has long been a source of strong and outspoken support for gay rights.
In a 2006 Esquire article, Brad Pitt said that he and Angelina Jolie "will consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able." (They jumped the gun a bit, marrying last year)
And donations for President Obama's reelection in 2012 came flooding in from Hollywood when he shifted his stance on same-sex marriage.
