Ellen DeGeneres Defends the Right to Gay Marriage
09/24/2008 AT 06:20 AM EDT
Describing the wording of Prop 8 as "tricky," the comedienne took to her blog to encourage her fans to vote against it.
"There's a California Proposition on the ballot that's a little confusing .... It's called, 'The California Marriage Protection Act' – but don't let the name fool you," she wrote. "It's not protecting anyone's marriage. Not yours. Not mine."
Of course, DeGeneres has a personal stake in the outcome. "I can't return the wedding gifts," she quipped. "I love my new toaster."
Earlier this month, both Brad Pitt and Steven Spielberg donated $100,000 to fight the proposition.
