A Facebook campaign is turning the social media giant red. As the Supreme Court hears a challenge to the constitutionality of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, the Human Rights Campaign has asked those who support same-sex marriage to make a red box with a faded-white equal sign their profile photo on Facebook. The campaign began this week.
The campaign also encourages supporters to wear red as the debate is going on in Congress.
Some are getting creative with the Facebook statuses, making red hearts with an equal sign. Others are getting on the other side of the debate, supporting marriage as only between a man and a woman with crosses and a crossed-out equal sign.
On Wednesday, the HRC reminded people to show support on day two at the Supreme Court hearing by using the marriage equality logo and turning Facebook red.
About an hour after it was posted, it had 14,384 "likes" and 4,275 shares.
