Stars React To Prop 8 Ruling

By: Betsy Waldman / May 27, 2009

Yesterday marked a step backwards in the fight for equality in our country, when the California Supreme Court ruled to uphold Prop 8, which makes same-sex marriage illegal in the State of California.

Not suprisingly, many celebs have spoken out against the ruling, which does allow the 18,000 same-sex marriages from the last year to remain legally binding.

An outraged Kim Kardashian took to her blog, saying “This really makes me sad. I thought we were more forward thinking than this, and I’m disappointed in the Supreme Court for being so closed minded. Everyone.. gay, straight, bisexual, transgendered, EVERYONE should have equal rights to marry who they want to.”

Kim’s sister Khloe shared similar digust for the marriage ban, saying “While I feel extremely angry about this decision, I find myself ultimately feeling more disappointed with the state I call home, as well as my country. If you don’t believe in same sex marriage, then don’t marry someone who is the same sex as you! Simple as that! Honestly people, what gives you the right to dictate how others should live their life? Who are you to tell someone that they can’t marry the one they love?!?”

Other stars took to their twitter accounts to express their distaste for the ruling:

Samantha Ronson: “Nice work california court, u must be beaming with pride. bet ya can’t wait to tell the grandkids one day all about how you saved marriage!”

Russell Simmons: “So california supreme court upheld proposition 8. I don’t get how it matters to anyone except those who want to marry?”

Adrianne Curry: “Treating gays like they arent human is wonderful!Might as well tell the gays2get to the back of the bus!Equal rights for SOME!”

Eliza Dushku: “Shame on California Supreme Court!”

Kat Dennings: “This is disgusting.”

Alyssa Milano: “A sad day for equality.”

Holly Montag: “BOO CALI! Our Bill of Rights and Constitution intended equal rights for ALL regardless of race, gender, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, age or creed!”

You’ve heard what the stars are saying, and now it’s your turn: What do you think about the ruling on Prop 8?
