If you just woke up from a bad hangover, North Carolina banned gay marriage yesterday. Horrible discrimination, we know. Trust us, weeee know!!
But while you obviously know our stance on the subject, you might now have heard what the celebs have to say about it!!
ALAN CUMMING: Wow North Carolina, wow. What a sad day when you tell the world you are active and blatant persecutors of civil rights, equality and love.
ELLEN DEGENERES: Getting married was one of the greatest things I have ever done. I hope everyone in North Carolina gets the same opportunity someday.
KELLY CUTRONE: The Weather Channel has confirmed there will be no more rainbows over North Carolina #anotherheterodrearyday
LONI LOVE: North Carolina you're going to miss out on some fabulous weddings…
NEIL PATRICK HARRIS: North Carolina passed Amendment One. Unbelievable.
MIA FARROW: Oh North Carolina - the disappointment we feel now is nothing compared to the bewilderment & shame your children will feel
DAX SHEPARD: North Carolina, this ugly amendment has no place in your Beautiful state. It's incongruous. Fix it young people.
ZACH BRAFF: Once both gay marriage and marijuana are finally legal, those of you against them are not invited to the really fun parties I'm gonna throw.
RUSSELL SIMMONS: I am a proud supporter of gay marriage.
TORI SPELLING: Sad to hear that Amendment 1 passed in North Carolina. Love is love! Period the end! #MarriageEquality
Cameron French, the state's spokeswoman for President Obama, said the president found the ban discriminatory, adding "[he] has long opposed divisive and discriminatory efforts to deny rights and benefits to same sex couples."
We're clearly upset with this, but it's uplifting to see those with a platform speak up during such a hateful moment in American history.
