In case you’ve been living under a rock this week, President Obama has endorsed same-sex marriage. Why is this a big deal? Other than the fact he is the first president to do so, the truth of the matter is that famous people have been putting their stamp of approval on same-sex marriage issue since before Obama was even a state senator.
And chances are you never even heard about it…
We here at CRAVE have done some fine journalistic reporting and have compiled a list of well-known people that have previously endorsed same-sex marriage that may have slipped under your radar.
Take a look:
Mario & Luigi:
These two lovebirds have kept “the love that dare not speak its name” under wraps since they originally jumped down the sewer into the Mushroom Kingdom. While most people thought they just liked moustaches because it seemed fitting to their Italian-American heritage, it turns out they were both HUGE Freddie Mercury fans. Inside sources say that Mario had been frequented in “Bear Bars” since the early 1980’s – they fell in love after Mario noticed Luigi’s sexy kicking legs on the dance floor. The both came out in support of gay marriage after the Haunted Castle Grand Prix go-kart race of 2003.
Darth Vader is probably the last person you'd expect to see endorse gay marriage. That is until, it was revealed that one-third of his storm troopers were gay. It was then that Vader realized these nameless, faceless, soldiers were actually people who enjoyed gay sex, even in a galaxy far far away. Vader celebrated his endorsement of same-sex marriage by blowing up Yavin moon.
Triple H has been one of the meanest, fiercest competitors in the history of professional wrestling, and it’s been no secret he has supported equal marriage rights for same-sex couples. Despite to being legally married to Stephanie McMahon, the Cerebral Assassin has reportedly been no stranger to love inside and outside the ring with his fellow wrestlers. Avid fans will remember Triple H’s original finishing move, “The O-Ring Slam.” Triple H publically supported same-sex marriage at King of the Ring 2003 after just smashing John Cena in the face with a chair.
So much lube… I do not understand…
Aside from always being curious about what it’s like to be human, Data has always been curious about what it’s like to be married to a dude. As he is an android, Data has always partial to the plight of everyone. And by calculating the probability of a Klingon attack and gay sex happening in tandem at about .000000000000000001%, Data has since publically endorsed the movement.
Heads or tails, Ian McKellan?
As Gotham’s own bi-curious criminal has always been two-minds about everything. That is until he applied for a tax-credit and was denied, as he actually believes himself to be two-people-in-one. Every since the slight, Two Face has been standing tall against same-sex opposition while holding a protest sign in one hand, and an AK-47 in the other.
CRAVE ONLINE has no official political stance on anything except the fact that Strawberry Pop-Tarts are way better than Blueberry.
