(Newser) – Steven Spielberg has weighed in to the tune of $100,000 against the gay marriage ban on California’s ballot this fall, the AP reports. Spielberg and his wife join Brad Pitt—who gave the same amount last week—as major celebrity opponents of the ban. The couple says the ban is discriminatory and “has no place in California’s constitution, or any other.”
