Following the historic U.S. Supreme Court ruling that allows same-sex couples in every state to marry, the Internet on Friday was overrun with cultural symbolism that celebrated the change: From Kool-Aid to Uber, corporate America took defiant toasts in favor of marriage equality, and timelines were stuffed.
Not to be outdone by brands, the White House joined in and was lit in rainbow colors to celebrate the SCOTUS decision Friday beginning at sunset.
