On Saturday, the Senate made the historic decision to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” which led to plenty of celebrities tweeting their excitement and patriotic pride.
“Modern Family’s” Jesse Tyler Ferguson wrote, "Stepping closer to Equality! Good Job America!!!! Don't Ask Don't Tell closer to being on the 'Remember-how-crazy-it-was-when...' list!"
Meanwhile, Kathy Griffin tweeted “FINALLY! Equality IS coming" in response to a follower asking her to talk about the news, and then tweeted another: "Reflecting on a historic weekend in fight for equality. Our national security & humanity will be stronger without #DADT."
Pop star Katy Perry hopped on her contemporary Pink’s Twitter celebration train, tweeting, “SUPPORTING ALL OUR TROOPS!” RT @Pink: Congrats 2 US!!! REPEAL of DADT & 17 years of allowing Human Rights Violations. There's hope after all."
“Can't hold back the tears + pride," Gaga wrote. "We did it!! Our voice was heard + today the Senate REPEALED DADT. A triumph for equality after 17 YEARS."
The repeal, ushered in with a 65-31 margin, will reverse the military's ban on gay men and women openly serving among their ranks.
