Hollywood Reacts with Sadness to Today’s Supreme Court Prop 8 Ruling

It’s a very sad day for gay Americans. Today the Supreme Court heard arguments for and against Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that struck down the state’s marriage equality law. While some were expecting the Court to overthrow Prop 8 and once again validate Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi‘s wedding, it now looks like they aren’t going to make any sweeping declaration

We’re very broken up about the news, and, if you look around the country, there are plenty of gay people and characters who are just as broken up. Look at how sad everyone is!
