Ellen DeGeneres expressed her feelings over gay marriage ban in California as she revealed that she is â€œsaddened beyond beliefâ€ by the passage of a constitutional amendment in California banning gay marriage.
The talk show host made a statement last Wednesday that she, â€œlike millions of Americans, felt like we had taken a giant step toward equalityâ€ by electing Barack Obama as president.
Ellen DeGeneres mentioned that with the passage of Californiaâ€™s Proposition 8, â€œwe took a giant step away.â€
The “Finding Nemo” star wed actress Portia de Rossi in August, following a May Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage in California.
She contributed $100,000 to fight the amendment on Tuesdayâ€™s ballot.
Ellen DeGeneres asserted that she will â€œcontinue to speak out for equality for all of us.â€
