When news broke that the Supreme Court had ruled 5-4 to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states, everyone took to social media to express their (almost) unanimous elation with the historic news. Some spoke out right away — like President Obama did via Twitter — while others let the decision sink in a bit before sharing their thoughts.
Celebrities — and politicians — had a lot to say about it. Everyone from Ellen DeGeneres to Harry Styles to Zach Braff chimed in with their opinions on the groundbreaking announcement.
See the celebratory messages and photos that celebrities shared to social media:
