Hollywood Reacts To Supreme Court Ruling On Prop 8 & DOMA (Updated)

Hollywood took to Twitter on Wednesday morning after the Supreme Court struck down a provision of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and also found that anti-gay marriage advocates had no standing to appeal the ruling that had overturned California’s Prop 8 ban on same-sex marriage.

Here’s what Hollywood is saying about the two historic victories in the fight for marriage equality:

Leonardo DiCaprio: “Historic day. Well done #SCOTUS. RT @GLAAD: Supreme Court affirms that #DOMA is unconstitutional!”

Ben Affleck: “Big news from the Supreme Court. Goodbye #DOMA #Prop8. Hello #equality.”
