Portia de Rossi -- Ellen DeGeneres

Prop 8 has been ruled by a federal appeals court to be in violation of constitutional rights. The news, which will likely send the case to the Supreme Court, has been met with much excitement and celebration from celebrities far and wide.

Of the decision, Judge Stephen Reinhardt said Tuesday, "Proposition 8 serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gay men and lesbians in California."

Below is a sampling of celebrity tweets sent out in reaction to the Prop 8 ruling:
