A bunch of people on Twitter are giving Alabama the finger after the state's Supreme Court upheld a ban on gay marriage.

The hashtag #LuvUAlabama blew up this afternoon after “Star Trek” actor George Takei urged people on social media to respond to the court's decision by raising their ring fingers in support of gay marriage.

People from across the United States responded in full force.

Justin Murdock tweeted a photo with his husband showing off their ring fingers after they tied the knot in West Virginia. "We WON in WV. Keep it up AL!!!" he wrote.

The Alabama Supreme Court handed down a ruling Tuesday night, ordering a stop to the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses by probate judges. The ruling came after Elmore County's probate judge requested the guidance in regards to issuing licenses.
