Stars weigh in on Supreme Court same-sex marriage debate

Padma LakshmiBy Lisa Respers France, (CNN) — Hollywood has always been very vocal about politics, and that was even more so the case on Tuesday as the Supreme Court heard from both sides on the same-sex marriage debate.

Using the #MarriageEquality hashtag, several stars shared their thoughts:

“Modern Family’s” Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who is engaged to attorney Justin Mikita, tweeted a photo of the lawyers opposing Proposition 8, Ted Olson and David Boies, arriving for court.

“Scandal’s” Scott Foley posed his tweet in the form of a question, writing, “How is it 2013 and we’re still debating marriage equality? Or for that matter, any equality?”

Russell Simmons encouraged his followers to retweet his post that said, “I hope that the Supreme Court stands on the right-side of history today by acknowledging marriage equality for all.”

Padma Lakshmi encouraged her followers to support the issue with their wardrobe, tweeting, “Everyone wear red today in support of #MarriageEquality … All Americans deserve to be treated equally – no matter who they love.”
