With the passing of perhaps one of the most ridiculous propositions of the last 10 years, many celebs are speaking out.
And the recently-married Ellen DeGeneres is among those that are speaking out about this injustice.
In a statement released by DeGeneres says:
"Watching the returns on election night was an amazing experience. Barack Obama is our new president. Change is here. I, like millions of Americans, felt like we had taken a giant step towards equality. We were watching history.
This morning, when it was clear that Proposition 8 had passed in California, I can’t explain the feeling I had. I was saddened beyond belief. Here we just had a giant step towards equality and then on the very next day, we took a giant step away.
I believe one day a 'ban on gay marriage' will sound totally ridiculous. In the meantime, I will continue to speak out for equality for all of us."
You go, girl!
We couldn't agree with Ellen any more.
Something needs to change!
