Ellen DeGeneres is Sad

[Gallery not found]

In May, the California Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in the state, making it possible for Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi and 180,000 other couples to wed. However, on Tuesday, California Proposition 8 was passed by 504,000 votes, effectively overturning the court’s decision. Ellen now votes yes on tears. The AP reports:

“Ellen DeGeneres says she is “saddened beyond belief” by the passage of a constitutional amendment in California banning gay marriage. The talk show host said in a statement Wednesday to The Associated Press that she, “like millions of Americans, felt like we had taken a giant step toward equality” by electing Barack Obama as president. DeGeneres says that with the passage of California’s Proposition 8, “we took a giant step away.”

In case Ellen was unaware, Barack Obama is against gay marriage, so I’m not real sure how she came to this conclusion. Sorry Ellen. It looks like both regular Jesus and black Jesus don’t want the phrase “Married Filing Jointly” to ever come up at your house 🙁
