Celebrities react to same sex marriage ruling
The justices issued two 5-4 rulings in their final session of the term. One decision wiped away part of a federal anti-gay marriage law that has kept legally married same-sex couples from receiving tax, health and pension benefits.
Many celebrities took to Twitter to react to the ruling.
