It was a historic day in America as Prop 8 was overturned in California by Judge Vaughn Walker, making the ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. The landmark ruling immediately sparked celebration around the Twitterverse, as celebs posted their thoughts about the momentous news. Gay rights activist and reality star Shanna Moakler tweeted, " This is so much bigger then marriage, it's about wisdom, compassion and knowing we CAN be heard, action DOES make a difference!" and Sophia Bush agreed, as the actress posted, "A MAJOR step forward. Everyone deserves the right to love whomever they choose. I am proud to be from Cali again!"
The overruling of Prop 8 hit especially close for publicly out stars. Ellen DeGeneres alerted followers, "This just in: Equality won!" and Lance Bass (pictured) wrote, "Congrats on the overturning of Prop 8!!!!" At the same time an exuberant Ricky Martin declared, "YEAHHHHH!!!!! #PROP8UNCONSTITUTIONAL MOVING FORWARD!!!!!!!!"
