Celebs React To US Gay Marriage Ruling
Stars take to Twitter to join in celebration of historic ruling...
Yesterday was a landmark day for equal rights and particularly for the LGBT community in the US as the nation's supreme court ruled that gay marriage is a constitutional right.
This means that individual states will no longer be allowed to ban same-sex marriage - and as you'd expect there has been a *bit* of celebrating.
Celebs have joined the rest of us in rejoicing at the happy news on social media.
One Direction's Harry Styles wrote: "Huge day for America.. Happy to see the news. All the love"

And Harry Potter author JK Rowling commented: "Wow. Another historic day for #MarriageEquality!"
Ariana Grande was clearly overcome with emotion, posting a swathe of emoticons and adding: "YAAAAAAS AMERICA - LOVE WON. LOVE WINS. AND IT AL.WAYS. WILL. (i'm crying)"
While Justin Timberlake was more low key, just writing: "#LoveWins"
Seth MacFarlane spoke for many when he said: "The Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states today. IT'S ABOUT. F***ING. TIME."
And Ellen Page was more thoughtful, writing: "Wow. So moved to hear such amazing news. What a beautiful day. Grateful to those who have worked so tirelessly for equality."
Neil Patrick Harris took a similar line, tweeting: "It's a new day. Thank you Supreme Court. Thank you Justice Kennedy. Your opinion is profound, in more ways than you may know. #huzzah."

Racing driver Lewis Hamilton shared a pic of a rainbow flag on Instagram, writing: "God is love & love wins always! #FREEDOM"
However his post attracted many negative comments from users of the social network.
Possibly the highest-profile tribute to the decision happened in Washington DC, when the White House became the Rainbow House for the evening thanks to a batch of projectors.
