Celebrities React to Confederate Flag Being Taken Down

Celebrities are speaking out on social media after the Confederate flag was taken down in South Carolina on Friday morning (July 10).

The historic moment came weeks after the Charleston church shooting and lots of pressure on lawmakers to remove the symbol of racism.

The flag was raised above the South Carolina State House back in 1962 to protest the civil rights movement and the state House of Representatives finally voted to take it down on Thursday. Governor Haley signed the measure into law later that day.

See how celebs like President Obama and Kerry Washington are reacting.

Meghan McCain Urges Republicans to Support Same-Sex Marriage

Meghan McCain is urging Republicans to support marriage equality after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional.

“Republicans have to move on from this, or become relics,” the daughter of 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain said (via Variety).

“The GOP’s nominee in 2016 has to support this ruling,” Meghan continued. “I think any anti-equality rhetoric will be lethal. We live in a world now where the reaction to Caitlyn Jenner is overwhelmingly positive and loving and accepting. I’ve said this before, but [Mike] Huckabee is one of the great imbeciles of American politics.”

“I never wanted to live in an America where there are different rights for different citizens depending on who you love,” Meghan added. “Even at a young age, I could never get the logic of that. When I tell my grandkids this story and tell them that in the past it wasn’t legal for gay people to get married, I think it’ll sound insane and unbelievable.”

Same-Sex Marriage Ruled Constitutional by Supreme Court!

The Supreme Court of the United States ruled that state bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional in a 5-4 decision on Friday (June 26).

The justices had to answer “whether the 14th Amendment’s guarantee of equal protection and due process require a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex,” according to Variety.

“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the majority. “In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than they once were.”

Until now, 37 states recognized same-sex marriage, but now the marriages will be recognized nationwide!
