Celebrities are overwhelmingly jubilant about same-sex marriage ruling

Celebrities took to social media Friday to express jubilation over the Supreme Court's ruling that made same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states.

#LoveWins was the collective hashtag used by Kristen Bell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Lady Gaga and so many others to welcome the ruling. Rainbow hearts illuminated news feeds as A-listers beamed with patriotism and American pride over the ruling.

Several shared news stories of historic weddings, while others got a bit more creative: "Will & Grace" alum Sean Hayes even created a music video with his husband to celebrate the momentous ruling.

Here's a roundup of reactions:

What's better than a supreme taco from Taco Bell? The Supreme Court of the United States. Thank you for making marriage...

Incidentally, if there were negative tweets coming from entertainment's famous folks, they were so few and far between as to be effectively invisible. Seth MacFarlane tweeted and deleted a groaner of a joke framing the decision as a good reason to go see "Ted 2," and Adam Baldwin had a series of tweets bemoaning federalism over states' rights, including one retweet about supporting the court's decision while disagreeing with its right to make the call in the first place.
